20/20 Gifts with Glue Dots



Welcome! 
If you are like me, you are starting to feel that the holiday countdown clock is speeding up.  Never Fear!  The Glue Dots ® Company and the Dottesses are here to help you along in your gift giving, hostessing, and home decor projects! Today, the Dottesses are sharing with you some clever and thrifty ways to help boost your gift giving.  

Here is an idea that costs less than $20 and will take less than 20 minutes to complete!
A few weeks ago, I found these silver initials with a spiral clippie at Kohl's.
They retail $6.99. But, with markdowns and coupons, I bought each one for $2.75. 


All they need is a little more life and warmth!
I used Removable Glue Dots ® to add embellishments such as:
raffia, buttons, colored cord, and ribbon.  In the future, I will change  them out to into wintry colors/patterns.


Or, I might make them springy...or summery.  
Or perhaps I will make them match the decor in a specific room.


These will be used to hold school pictures or Christmas Cards or place cards for dinner seating.
While I bought an initial for each of my family members, I was so tempted to get a set of initials of our last names for table settings. But, the holidays is for giving to others. We will be giving a set of these, along with school pictures, to each of the grandparents!


The skies the limit when you use Removable Glue Dots ®.



If you don't want to keep changing out the decorations, Permanent Glue Dots ®
will keep your ribbons and ribbons in one place securely!
