I know it’s a very hectic time of year….. the parties, the shopping, the decorating…. and the last minute gift for Aunt Betty.

We at Die~Namites Dies wanted to share with you a few Last Minute Ideas.

It is always so hard for me to think of what to give teenagers for Christmas. This year filling up their stockings was a little challenging and I was still shopping up until today to finish up everything.

While shopping for stocking gifts I saw so many gift sets that were way overpriced. I thought, “I could put something together for half the cost of those packaged sets”. So I grabbed some nail polish and other nail care items for my daughter and bundled them up in a clear cellophane bag. I attached a pretty tag that I made with two of the new release dies from Die-namites!

The dies I used were the Curly Poinsettias die and the Winter Branch die.

Winter Branch Curly Pointsettas

I layered the winter branch die with some cuts from additional branch dies along the bottom right corner.Then added the Curly Poinsettias on top. I took a clear wink of stella glitter marker and added some glitter accent on the flowers. I finished everything off by adding in some enamel dots and gems. Once everything was finished and dry I added my daughters name using gold glitter foam thickers.

It’s a good idea to have a few ready made tags like this one on hand. Adding a name is easy and fast and it really makes a quickly put together gift that much more special!
