Shauna Krantz, with Ella and Annie Magazine, is showing us a fabric gift bag DIY today!

I absolutely love wrapping up gifts in fabric. These easy to make drawstring bags are perfect for dressing up those holiday gifts. Make them various sizes. They are perfect for the oddly shaped presents that are nearly impossible to wrap with paper. Best part, the are reusable! A great way to go green this holiday season.

Santa Claus Cupcakes DIY

Santa Claus Cupcake DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I love food crafting! When I saw that our snowman cupcakes were such a hit this year, I decided to try my hand at this Santa Claus cupcakes DIY.

Using mostly store-bought items I was able to make these pretty quickly, and I think they turned out so cute. To me these little Santas almost came to life... so much so, that when my daughter bit into one, I actually felt a little pang in my heart. :( I know, the good thing is I can always make more!

Cute Gift Card Holder DIY

Gift card holder DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Every year at the holidays, I give gift cards to my daughter's teachers and a few other people in our community.

I know they appreciate them, but to me, gift cards always feels a little impersonal. That's why I came up with an easy way to make giving a gift card more meaningful.

Giving Back While Shopping This Christmas

by Jillian Leslie on

Lainey TOMS + Target11

As I had mentioned in my previous TOMS for Target post, TOMS and Target have teamed up this holiday season so that for every #TOMSForTarget gift you buy, they're giving away shoes, a blanket, or a meal to someone in need. I think that's such a great way to be giving back while shopping this Christmas.

As part of this campaign I got to go to Target and purchase some of those special items. To help me show them off is Lainey...
