Grab & Go Gift Bags
If you are like me, most times you want a quick and easy project that shouts creative fun! I make these grab & go gift bags by the dozen – and in all different colors – so that I will have the perfect quick gift when I need it.  The materials list is really easy and you probably have all of them in your craft supplies closet:

Gift bag
Shipping tag
Pre-cut scrapbook shapes
Rubber stamp – word of your choice 
Small beads and buttons
Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue Stick
Aleene’s® Fast Grab Tacky Glue®

So, you can probably figure this out really easy but here are the steps:

Glue scrapbook shape onto shipping label and gift bag with Aleene’s Glue Stick.  Stamp word onto tag. Glue bead and button onto center of paper shape with Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky.  Let the glues dry completely and tuck these grab & go’s away for your next special gift occasion. 

Need something interesting to put into your gift bag. We found these cute glass jars at Michaels and filled them with dried herbs.  Feeling ambitious?  Fix Candace’s Yummy Garden Salsa recipe and fill up some decorative jars:

1 cup plum tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup red pepper, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (use fresh, as cilantro loses its zing when dried!)
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced jalapeno (optional)

Prepare all vegetables and place in bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and chill. You can spice this up if you think it needs more zing by adding more jalapenos or chili peppers. Serve with tortilla chips. Ole!
