It's the craziest time of the year...

Let me set the scene for you - You got all your Christmas shopping done. You are spending Christmas Eve wrapping gifts, getting into the holiday spirit, perhaps drinking a holiday spirit... when you run out of gift bags and gift tags. All the stores are closed and even if they aren't, you don't really feel like changing out of your PJs to run yet another errand. What do you do?

That was my inspiration for this week's craft on our Nailed It Or Failed It Segment on WQAD News 8 at 11am. Not like this has ever happened to me or anything...

I searched around and found a quick and easy way to make gift bags out of wrapping paper from a blog called Designer Trapped. I then found two different ideas for gift tags - one has paper ornaments on them (from a blog called One Dog Woof) and one has paper Christmas trees (from an Etsy store called Bump of Knowledge). I tried out all three and am very happy with the results!
