Stocking Stuffer Ideas Details

Whether you’re catering to a friend that loves fruity flavors or grandkids that love chocolate, you’ll be amazed by the wide variety of flavors in lip balms! I found them in candy bar flavors, too! (YUM!) Shop Amazon and big box stores to obtain a variety pack for optimum savings.


The Tags, Tags, Tags Bundle (Holiday Catalog page 56) is, what I think, one of those “sleeper products”. These photopolymer stamps contain three different images on one stamp. The coordinating Trio of Tags Dies cut out three separate shapes – quickly and easily. Be sure to watch the video to see more details about this product.

This Bundle isn’t just for Christmas. There are images for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. You won’t to miss the additional ideas I have with this Bundle. Click on the image below!

Cellophane Bag Tips

I used a 2″ x 8″ cellophane bag purchased from Amazon several years ago. I wasn’t able to find the 2″ x 8″ length any longer BUT I did find a 2″ x 10″ bag for a great price (shopping details below)! The 2″ width allows you to insert two lip balms side by side and still allows for adaptation for one, as I’ve done today. The video includes tips on concealing the remaining width of the bag so be sure to watch.

And before you begin your search for a 1″ wide bag, let me save you some time. The 1″ width is not wide enough for lip balms. I tried, only to find that I ripped the seams of the cellophane bag as I  attempted to fit the lip balm inside.


The Metallic Brad Assortment includes a variety of styles in gold, copper and silver (annual catalog page 177). The package includes 40 total brads in three different sizes. I love that the prongs are pliable making them easy to adjust behind the cellophane bag so they are well hidden. I share this tip in today’s video along with a great tip on creating the hole and inserting the brad with ease.
