Preparations for christmas
Giving birth in december is no excuses for being lazy in the preparations for christmas.I found this beautiful fabric to make my own gift bag like I normally did since a few years now.I specially like the one with the ginger bread man.The cost of the bag is + - between 4 - 6 $ depending of the fabric.It's not so expensive to make something personalize and which can be use again and again.
My honey and I had a limited budget for the gifts this year because I had to buy so many things for our son.An exemple of sweet box.On the top a simple squarre of fabric attached with a ribbon.Below is rectangle of fabric attached on both side.To have a beautiful and regular shape I use cardboard .The same one you find in bathroom tissue.It's a good way to recycle.
A sweet box with a toy I found at the dollar store.The futur owner like ginger bread man and with his hat remind me some hat wear by baker.The person is also a baker so I thought it was just too cute.
A gift for my parents.A fruits cake I made .I found a metal box at the dollar store to put it in.It does make a more beautiful presentation then just giving the cake alone.
