Quick gift tags

I have had these little magnetic snappy things for a few months. I received them as a "gift" for having a card published in Paper Trends magazine last year. Anyway, I didn't know what to do with these so I've just had them stuck in a drawer. The other day I sent Emma to school with the m&m jars in plain brown gift bags. "Hmmm, something is missing," I said. I went to make a gift tag, saw these in the tag drawer and thought, "I could cover these and wrap and snap them around the handles." These worked out well for last minute (at 6:30 am, no less). I trimmed the paper, ran it through the Xyron, adhered it to the snappy thing, stamped the with the sentiment and then the flower with Versamark and added shimmer chalks over the top with a complimentary color. I think that I will be using this idea for the remaining tags.

Cute idea! I never would have thought of that! I've only used them for bookmarks.

These are super cute! Great job - especially for 6:30 in the morning. I'm very impressed.
