Treats for Classmates, Teachers & Staff

I made these mini chocolate treat holders for my daughter, Logan.

Logan was switched to a new class that meets her needs.

I wanted a favorable response for Logan's switch to a different classroom with other classmates that has two teachers within that class.

This project was a gesture to treat her classmates and teachers to a "Thank you for being a friend".

Everyone loved it. It was also a surprise for Logan. I woke her up to get ready for school, and I showed them to her. She was happy.

I live for these moments.


           

Use the following Items for this project:
  • Recollections Printed Cardstock "Back to School"
  • Recollections Plain Cardstock: Black, White and Red
  • StazOn Ink: Opaque White and Blazing Red
  • Stapler with Staples
  • ATG Gun with Scotch Double-sided Adhesive 
  • American Crafts Foam Dots 
  • M'prepressions by Maymay Stamp Set "Oh, Snap!"
  • Fiskar Trimmer
  • EK Success: Three Label Punch and Corner Rounder
  • Bic MarkIt Markers: Black and Red
  • Martha Stewart Scoring Board
The cardstock was trimmed into strips of 1.5"x 5.5". Using the corner rounder I rounded of the corners of each strip. I then scored the cardstock width wise at 2.25" and again at 3.25". 

Then I adhered double-sided tape onto the center of the inside of the treat holder, placed a mini chocolate onto the adhesive, and stapled closed the holder. I covered the staple using front and back labels.

On the front label I stamped the phrase "Smile!" and popped it up using a foam dot. On the rear label I used the bic markers to write the phrase "From: Logan" on it; each word was written using one of the two colors. I adhered this down using double-sided adhesive. 

Enjoy the moments & Have a blessed day!

Lots of Hugs & Smiles,

Maymay Made It DT Challenge

Here's a Halloween card I put together using 
M'pressions by Maymay Country Pumpkin Stamp Set
 
In this project we were challenged to make a project using the supplies Maymay provided the DT with. I used all the supplies and used my Key Lime Bic Marker to color the bling on the inside of the card. I inked up the card and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I will make a video soon showing how I did the card. For now this is an A2 size card and all the strips of paper we're cut at 1" wide. I also used the circle sissor pro by EK Tools to cut out the circles. I overlayed the strips every 1/8"

Here's the stamp set I used in this project.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Before you go take a look a my current giveaway below to find out how you can win the stamp set I used in this project or any of the other M'pressuons by Maymay stamps I'm giving away. Have a blessed day.

Lots of Hugs and Smiles
