Quick & Easy Gift Idea For A Crowd

The days until Christmas are counting down!  From now until then, I'll be sharing some "Quick & Easy" ideas with you to help make this time of year a little less stressful. 

Here's a quick and easy gift idea if you need something for a group of people---
Initial Clips
I got this batch of clips from PICK YOUR PLUM--20 clips for just $5.50 (with shipping the total was $9.00...just 45 cents each!).  Pick Your Plum has different daily deals so I don't know if these will be back on their site.  However I found another online source for them.  Not as cheap as I got them but you can grab them HERE.  The 5/8" round metal letters were in my stash.  I believe I picked them up for a few bucks at Big Lots a few years ago.  They were the perfect size to go in the top of the clip.  (I wasn't able to find a source for these on line so if you don't have something similar, I would suggest using a gem, fancy brad top or just punch some decorative paper to go in that space.)  I simply used Glossy Accents to adhere the letters and the gift was done!
I wanted a nice way to present them so I created cards that measured 2" x 5.5" out of kraft cardstock.  I stamped, colored with a green colored pencil and added red Stickle berries.
On the back I stamped a little "To/From" and wrote in the names...easy peasy!
