Classroom Gifts

I made snowman soup packets for my daughters 1st grade class. I printed the poem on light blue cardstock. I cut the snowman using my cricut. The packets contain instant hot chocolate, 2 Hershey kisses, candy cane and mini marshmallows. It is all sealed up in a clear envelope (like the ones Stampin Up sells).

These are glass round ornaments with coordinating Chirstmas paper rolled up and dropped inside where it unrolls a bit. I used some cheap brand of rub ons on the outside that were a pain in the butt to work with. I just added a hook and tied a bow. These were made for the ladies I work with.

I put them in plastic bags used for like chocolate candy suckers you make. Tied some ribbon and added this stamped tag. I bought the stamp on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby. It has 3 stamps in it and I think I paid .60 for it. I cut it out and matted it on a round piece of green cardstock and added a jump ring to attach it to the ribbon.

I bought a kit (also on clearance, only I bought it 2 years ago) to make several different felt ornaments. I got 2 of them made this year. Maybe I will start in January to get the rest of them done for next Christmas.

Some New Cards

This birthday card is much cuter in person. My flash really washed out the color on it.

Cardstock - SU Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Stamped Images - Candle is $1 stamp from Michael's, the cake is from the $1 clear packs.
Punches- SU scallop and 1 1/4 circle
Other- White Gel Pen, Cuttlebug with dotty (not sure of the actual name) embossing folder, Prisma colored pencils.

The card looks big, but it is only 3 1/4 X 5 1/4. The duck and scallop are on pop dots.

Cardstock - SU Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Whisper White.
Pattern Paper - DCWV
Image - Suzy Zoo
Other - SU scallop punch, 1 1/4 circle, Prisma colored pencils, pop dots.

I have only used this stamp twice now, and both times I have done it in blues and greens. I don't know why those are the colors that come to me with this image.

Cardstock - SU Ballet Blue, Green Galore, Whisper White
Pattern Paper - I think it's from a DCWV stack
Other- 3D balloon from the Sandylion Essentials Birthday Gift pack, green ribbon is self adhesive and from Darcie, Prisma colored pencils.
