Last week we went to Best Buy to pick up my new laptop. Yup, I got a brand spankin’ new laptop! Mine old one is 6 years old and was literally losing it. And I mean losing KEYS! Yes folks, this is what I have been writing posts on since last Spring.
Well, I am not a electronic-gadget kind of gal. Going into Best Buy generally makes me break out in hives! (figuratively at least) and all I see is BIG HUGE MONEY PRICE TAGS! Yes, spending that much money on things makes me shutter. So, I leave it up to Troy to deal with it whenever I can. While he was picking up the laptop and talking computer stuff with Best Buy Boy, I headed into the Mall to check-out after Christmas sales. I was in Victoria Secrets and found some fun fragrance sprays and powders reduced to, what I consider, good prices.
I picked up a few things for myself and then a couple of things for friends. The two little gifts for Katie and Sandy were little “Just Because” gifts. I knew they would enjoy them and it is always nice to get a completely unexpected gift from Victoria Secrets right? When I checked out I told the sales clerk that these were gifts for friends and asked if they had any gift bags. They did and they are free. So, always ask when you buy your items because you never know unless you do ask.
I didn’t want to make a big deal about the little gifts so, I didn’t want to include a card in the bag but, I did want a gift tag. I thought about using some pretty scrapbook paper or card stock. I had just cleaned out and organized my scrapbook drawers and remembered I had these…..
It already had a handy “folding white line” so, I folded it and put a couple of daps of hot glue between the two and pressed. Then I just added some ribbon to tie it to the package. Simple, free (had the ribbon and paint samples) and very easy. You could really doo-dad this up if you wanted to. Added embellishments to the tags would be cute.
I am very excited to join some “new to me” parties!
