An inexpensive hostess gift....

When I made these, I also "stamped" some vintage silverware with names of herbs:
I needed quick gifts for two friends so I bought some basil ($1.00 @ Walmart) and 2 creamers ($.59 @ GW):
And as long as I can keep these alive, they will be cute gifts!
I also wanted to giftwrap these....
So I used two paper bags, some cardstock and my favorite Lumocolor pens to duplicate a quote I saw online:
And each one has a name tag:
Quick and easy!
