Last Minute Gift Giving

It's the 23rd and many of you may be frantically wrapping gifts and goodies for giving in the next couple of days. If you own the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit, you can create a tag in seconds! Just use a piece of card stock cut to any size (or use a die cut tag), add a sticker from the kit and you are finished!

The Simply Scrappin' Kit is chock full of self-adhesive die-cuts, 6 double-sided 12 x 12" sheets of coordinating designer paper and 8 12 x 12" sheets of coordinating card stock. The kit has all you need to decorate packages, cards, tags or scrapbook pages! It is late for this year, but think how you can be ahead for next year! :-)

Here I used my kit and card stock to create the cello bag topper for some Peanut Butter Chews for my son. Here is the recipe:

3/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup confectioner's sugar

1. In a food processor, pulse dry milk until it forms a fine powder, about 5 pulses. In a mixing bowl combine peanut butter and corn syrup. Gradually add confectioner's sugar and beat until smooth.

2. Add dry milk a little at a t time and stir until mixture is stiff enough to work with your hands. Knead any remaining dry milk into mixture. Roll into ropes 1/2" thick. Cut into 2-1/4" long pieces. Wrap in waxed paper or cellophane candy wrappers. Store at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.

Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit (124007 $21.95) is available from the Holiday Mini Catalog through January 3, 2012.
