Warm Thoughts

This time of year, I'm always looking for ideas for "little somethings" I can give to people just to say thanks and that I appreciate them. This year, for the first time, we interact with 3 crossing guards on our way to school every day. I thought something like this would be perfect for a crossing guard! I wish I could have the hot cocoa already made and hand them a warm mug as we pass, but this will have to do! LOL

I used the Something Sweet set from Just Rite Stampers. You can find it (and many other Just Rite products) at Stamper's Dream. I colored the image using Copic markers. The "folder" was made using a 4.25"x11" piece of cardstock and folding to make the pocket. I punched holes on either side and threaded ribbon to hold the pocket together. Simple, but cute I think. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Something Sweet (JustRite Stampers); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Creamy Caramel (SU); Paper- Colorful Christmas (My Mind's Eye), Dark Chocolate (PTI), Prism; Accessories- Copic markers, circle and scallop circle punches (Marvy Uchida); Finished pocket measures 5.5"x4.25"

Love this idea! So very versatile. It's not girly or cutesy so can be given to a man also. I volunteer at my kids' high school. I am there quite often so know a lot of people I would like to give a little something to - something not so big as to embarass them or make them feel they needed to reciprocate. This is perfect and could work for teabags also.

This is such great timing - I've been wanting to make some hot cocoa and hot apple cider gifts for co-workers and friends. Thanks for the inspiration and the great idea!

What a cute idea. I had been looking for an idea that I can make for the residents of the nursing facility that my mom lives. Thanks for sharing your creation.
