Surprise guests?  Sometimes, despite your best planning, you come up a gift short and need to put something together in a hurry.  It’s a good idea to have some fast and fabulous gift ideas at hand, and that’s what we’re showing you today at My Paper Crafting.

As a member of my school’s Sunshine Committee, I made 60 of these little “Elf Droppings” for my co-workers.  Any time you need to make many of something, clip art is your best friend!!elf droppings

P1050381I found the poem many places online.

Another way to make gifts in a hurry is by making multiples of your cutting files and save the extras for later.  I do that all the time.  I always fill up the mat with the largest piece of the cut file, and then make that many of all the other pieces and assemble while watching TV.  I use what I need for the project I’m working on and save the rest.  I have lots of Frappuccino bottles from a friend that I can fill with candies or bath salts, adhere a leftover cut file and some ribbon, and voila!  instant gift!  (see here)
