Christmas Crafts Part Deux

Late last night I finished the teacher gifts. For the young uns teachers (all 6 of them) and for my team. I'll be honest after the third time I burnt myself with the glue gun I started taking shots of butterscotch schnapps. It was like my own little Christmas party. And also explains why some of the pictures are a little blurry ;)

The young un picked out the papers for his teachers and they each received a push pin and 2 magnets. I have searched and searched for more of those clear block stamps, but no such luck. I used clear decorative stones for these.


It's hard to wrap something that small, so I put them in mini cupcake wrappers. So cute, especially when placed in the party favor/treat boxes I gussied up with some $1 ribbon.

Once I got the system down (cutting out all the circles takes the longest) it went pretty quickly. I may make a set of these for family Christmas gatherings as well. I'm already planning a Christmas in July party to get theses done early next year! On a teacher front, I racked up quite a bit of loot as well; starbucks, subway & wal-mart gift cards, oreo truffles galore, fudge, turtles & chocolate dipped pretzels, and some delish hot cocoa mix. I will be in a sugar coma for days :)
P.S. How about this festive Friday sweatshirt? src=

How fun! So, when will you be posting a tutorial for these adorable little bits? and what a cute idea with the little box and wrappers and such! I bet they are a hit!

Cute sweatshirt, too!

Blissful- Tutorials at my strong point, but I'll try to do a break it down post this week. The teachers were so happy to have a non food gift!

Trish- That was all part of the master plan, I just didn't realize they would be soooo bright!
