Tis the Season

Today is Savannah's Christmas party at preschool. Last night I thought "I don't have anything for her to take in for the class!" So, I whipped these up VERY quickly this morning. . .and I mean quickly! All I did was put some candy in a cello bag, tie it with some grosgrain ribbon, and add a tag. The stamp is from another one of the Studio G clear stamp sets I got. I thought it would make a nice, simple tag that I didn't have to color. So, if you're ever down to the last minute. . .this is probably as simple as you can get AND you won't be so heartbroken thinking about the kids just "ripping it open"! LOL SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Studio G clear stamp set; Ink- Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi; Paper- Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate; Accessories- cello bag, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, white grosgrain ribbon.

I wanted to respond to a comment I received the other day since there was no link to an email address:

Debi has left a new comment on your post "
For Mom": Congrats on the "Honorable Mention" The note Cards are just awesome. Did you also make your mom the envelopes for the note cards?Do you have just a quick tutorial on making note cards. Silly question I know, but I haven't made them before and am not sure. Does everyone of your note cards have the lovely ribbon around it? Did you make a note card holder? If so, How?Well, again a wonderful project and I know your mom has to be so proud of all the beautiful items you make and especially the ones she receives.....Hugs,Debi

Debi--To answer your questions, I just put regular invitation envelopes with the card set. I didn't decorate them or anything. The notecards themselves are 4.25" square, so I just cut cardstock into 4.25"x8.5" pieces and folded in half. Yes, each notecard had the ribbon around it and yes, I did make the notecard holder. It was from a pattern I got in a Papercrafts magazine a while back. I'm hoping to have some time to make up a little tutorial for you, but we'll see how that goes with baby! :) Hope that answered your questions!

Fantastic job on those little treats! That's what I do too! My daughter is 8 and in third grade and kids that age are all about the candy! They just rip into it and throw the packaging away. No sense spending too much money on supplies :)
