Thank You!

Last week we had 3 way conferences at the school for my kids. 3 way-being that instead of just parent/teacher conferences, we bring the kids along. It's been great and the kids love that special time to show me their work, the new stuff in the classroom, it's a fun time. My kids took these little thank you treats to their teachers and assistants. It turned out super cute, so I thought I'd share!
The treats are a candy called Knoppers and are a great very square treat! They are wafers with haslenut/chocolate...goodness. Anyway, I just wrapped them up in Hawaii Papya designer paper, I rolled the ends through my crimper to seal the edges and give it very finshed look. (my crimper was one of my very first purchased tools...YEARS ago...and it's still going strong!) I used my Big Shot and the Birds and Bloom die cut for my flowers, and then used the 1/2" circle punch for the center. My flowers are pumpkin pie and chocolate chip. The Thank You is from the Wow Flowers set. I stamped it in pumpkin pie ink and then used the large oval punch to punch it out. I attached the thank you with a dimensional.

Super quick treat...but super cute! I'm really happy to let you know that I no longer have a problem hoarding paper! I've "crossed" that bridge and am happy and eager to cut into beautiful paper! Isn't that great! I've been working on this for a while, but I can say that I no longer feel the need to hoard paper!:) Yea!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have wonderful one!!

I love the Hawaii Papaya paper (just used it myself for the first time yesterday). I'm going to CASE this project (and credit you, of course). I adore how you crimped the ends.

Hugs,

Mary

I bought a crimper on sale two years ago but never used it. What a great idea! I just recently subscribed to your blog and I really enjoy it. Thank you for taking the time to share.

This is super cute! I still haven't invested in a crimper but I've been contemplating it for a long time now - mostly because of these kinds of cute treats!

What a thoughtful little gift and Hazelnut - YUM! I keep saying that there is nothing like European Hazelnuts.

lol, I'm still having a hard time cutting into pretty paper but I've gotten better about buying less of it. Someday I'll get through my stash of paper.

These are adorable!!!

Wow! These are the cutest little treat holders!! I would flip out for these, too bad your kiddos aren't in my class! lol!

I also had to laugh for your comment on my blog about the receipt as a bookmark! I used a Marshall's receipt through all 3 Twilight books I've read so far! lol!
