  1. Easter Basket Tags

    Hide

    Inexpensive baskets are adorned with clip art tags for kids to write their names on, so there are no mix-ups at your Easter-egg hunt party.

    Print onto card stock, and cut out. Punch a hole at the top, and thread with string or ribbon. Use open space to write a name on each.

  3. New Year's Champagne with Grapes

    Hide

    In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. 

    Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

    This Valentine's Day, offer loved ones homemade treats wrapped in paper that echoes your heartfelt sentiments. All you need to transform plain waxed paper into lovely gift wrap is some tissue paper, a heart-shaped craft punch, and an iron. Use the paper to wrap cakes, stacks of cookies, and other goodies. Then finish each package with some waxed twine and a colorful gift tag.

    Valentine's Day Treat Bags

    Hide

    If you're looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day present, you can't go wrong with candy.

    For an easy-to-make gift, simply fill a cello bag three-quarters full with layers of jelly beans and hard candy. Top it off with a heart-shaped lollipop, stuck directly into the mixture, and tie the whole package together with a beautiful ribbon.
