Here is what we are doing this year.
Let's put it all together to make it pretty, as well as useful.
I decided to use a hole punch so the gift cards will be secured to the gift. I know my kids, and the potential for a card going missing on the way to school is greater than 50/50. This will take some muscle! It does help if you wiggle the card side to side as you are trying to punch.
The chocolate goes in to a Christmas-y bag. (I ended up buying a second bag of chocolates to help fill the Christmas bags rather than just the one bag shown a few pictures earlier.)
Punch a hole through the bag to be able to secure it with ribbon to the soap pump in a little bit.
I used some red curling ribbon to loop through the gift card. You could also use an elastic pony tail holder or a rubber band. The ribbon just seemed to be a better hold for me.
String the ends of your ribbon through the holes in your bag and then secure them around the neck of the soap bottle. I worked the ribbon up under the cap to make sure it stayed on the bottle all the way to school. Add a few more strings of ribbon and then use your scissors to curl the ends.
A pretty, useful and yummy present! I have no worries about these gifts not be used. Even better, each gift cost about $4.50 (minus the Starbucks card)!
And, yes, the Bath & Body Works bag from the previous facelift post, is what all these hand soaps came home in. I knew you were wondering.
