Ordinary to Extraordinary Thank you gifts



Thank you gifts are my all time favorite things to create because I can take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. PRESENTATION shows that you took the time to truly create something from the heart even if it "just" a bottle of water. I thought this would be a fun way to let someone know that you appreciate an otherwise thankless job. Take for example, the security guards of your neighborhood, mail carrier, the school bus driver, cafeteria worker or just someone that brightens your day!! Everyone appreciates being appreciated ;o)
The Strawberries & Sweetness sentiment are part of Unity's 100% Happy stamp set sold at Paper Maniac. LOVE A BARGAIN?? Check out Paper Maniac's Dollar Store which is at the bottom of their side bar. The Heart Patterened Paper is by Sassafras Lass and you can purchase a 6"x6" pad with 24 double sided sheets for only $1.49.
Have you visited Paper Maniac's website yet?

Sweet!! You're right - it's all about the presentation. Somehow a plain ole' bottle of water would seem so much better when decorated wtih these darling tags. You are such a smarty!! Love the yummy colors!
