Scents of the Season, the Perfect DIY Gift

I had a wonderful Holiday dinner with some of my closest girlfriends last week. .. the one where I was scrambling to buy gifts at the uber last minute, spending money on stuff that was ok but (bc of the tardiness) not that well though-out.  Well, one of my sweet friends, Kara, brought one of the best gifts. . . an true expression of giving, really. . . of the evening.  This adorable little paper bag with what I call "scents of the season" inside.  She and her little girls  assembled the bags (with love) together that morning and with the ribbon and hand-written note, I just absolutely loved it.  I followed the directions over the weekend and lemmetellya - it made my house smell delicious!  And even better that it came directly from a special friend.  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share the love, so with the help of Hubs and Bugs, we put together my version of this gift for my co-workers - super easy and perfect gift for work friends, I think.  I hope they enjoy as much as I did! Happy Holiday week!!

Yummy and pretty in the boiling pot!
My fixin's all out and ready to be assembled.
My version of the instruction card, with personalized cut-outs and felt accoutrements (of course!).
