It's that time. One week from Today is Christmas Day. Are you ready? One week left of school before the kids are off for Christmas break. That I am not sure anyone is truly ever ready for.
Are you ready for Teacher gifts? I got a Nifty idea for you. When our Holiday Mini came out, I saw those amazing little Cellophane Bags. I bought lots of them and have used them for all sorts of treats. They are very thin so you have to really be careful what can "fit" inside them.
Here is the perfect example of what fits! Please excuse the glass vase but it was the best item to hold it up without to much distraction.
I found these tiny peppermint pillows in a specialty store and I knew these would be perfect. Of course "M&M" like candy will work just as well. I did not staple but rather used snail to tape the scallop Designer Series paper together. Makes it a bit easier to get to the treat without destroying the package.
Just a bit of Bling on the tag.
The perfect way to fill these little bags is by making a Funnel/trough out of Card stock. Length can be at least 4" or more and the width is 1" and then folded in 1/2. Very easy to get tiny treats inside. (Making the fold-use that awesome Simply Scored tool-HINT: Perfect Holiday Gift!!)
