Day 3: Mistle "Toes" Christmas Gifts

During a road trip, I was browsing pinterest and saw a super cute idea post (here) and immediately decided that was something I wanted to recreate for some Christmas gifts.  I just loved the saying and loved the idea of making a mini-pedicure in a bag.  Plus, it looked so easy and fun!

I used my Silhouette cutter with white glitter paper to create the tag and two other papers for the background.  The dimensions of each paper is approximately:
  • Top layer (white glitter): 2" high x 6.25" wide (I cut the rectangle after the words had been cut)
  • 2nd layer (solid blue): 2.5" high x 6.5" wide
  • Bottom layer (glitter polka dot): 6" high x 7" wide.  This piece folds in half and sandwiches the bag opening.
In each bag (small clear gift basket bags, Michael's) I put:
  • True Blue Foot Cream (Bath & Body Works)
  • Opi Nail Polish (color chosen specifically for each gal)
  • Nail Files (I found some really cute ones at Bath & Body Works before Christmas)
  • Pedi Scrub Foot Buffer, Lavender Aromatherapy scent (

This gift was fun to make, fun to give, and would be super fun to receive!  I'm planning on using this idea again, but with different sayings.  Here are a few ideas:
  • Mother's Day:
    • "Hands down, You're the best!"  
    • "Thanks for always holding my hand!"
  • Teacher Appreciation: "Thank you for helping to 'polish' our student's skills!"
  • Birthday/Just Because: "Never let anyone dull your sparkle!" (include glitter polish too)

Can't wait to give this gift again!
