Simple Treat Bags

Hi again!

Today is the last day of work before Christmas, and I finally got the chance to make these treat bags for my coworkers.

These treat bags are smaller than the ones I made for my husband's coworkers, because I ran out of the bigger cello bags (I used the bags to package my cards and envelopes for the craft sale).

These are what's inside the bag:
Turtles chocolate
Lindt Lindor truffles
Almond Roca
Swiss Miss hot chocolate mix

I made a topper for each bag using my Cricut (took the photo without flash).
Dark blue cardstock is from The Paper Company (cut at 4 inches x 2 inches).
Snowflake patterned paper is from Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) Christmas Stack (cut at 1 3/4 inches by 3 3/4 inches).
White cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.
Penguin stamp is from Inkadinkadoo.
Sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper.
Black ink is from Memento (Tuxedo Black).
The circle was cut with Cricut using Mini Monograms cartridge (2 inches).
The tag for the sentiment was cut using EK Success punch (I forgot the name, sorry).

Assembly was really quick.  After I filled the bags, I stapled the bag closed and attached the topper I put together with double-sided tape.  I then attached the hot chocolate packet on the back of each treat bag using double-sided tape.

Ta-da!  The finished treat bags:

I hope my coworkers enjoy them!

Thanks for reading, and happy holidays to everyone! :)

Cards for the Craft Sale

As I mentioned several weeks ago, the oncology department at the hospital where I work is holding a craft sale to benefit patients who have to stay for extended periods in the hospital.  They invited all crafters to donate a few items for the sale.

I decided to make some greeting cards (actually, 33 of them) and matching envelopes.

Here are a few of them:

I made several more, but I like these ones the best, that's why I'm sharing them. :)

Unfortunately, I did not get to see my cards at the sale, because the craft sale was held at the day of our holiday party.  I hope they were sold and that I was able to contribute something to help the patients.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Holiday Treat Bags

I made these treat bags for my husband's coworkers.  I actually wanted to make some for my coworkers, too, but because my husband needed his today, I made theirs first.
The treat bag contains two Turtles chocolates, two Almond Rocas, two Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles, and a Swiss Miss hot chocolate packet.  Yummy!

The sentiment and holly stamps are from Fiskars.  I got it at Jo-ann's last year.
Images are stamped with Memento ink.
The ribbon is from AC Moore.
White cardstock is from PaperTrey Ink.
Red and green cardstock is from The Paper Company.
The striped paper is from Die Cuts with a View (DCWV).
The scallop and scalloped circle is from Cricut's Mini Monograms cartridge.
The tag is punched with an EK Success punch (I forgot the name, sorry!).

I will be making the bags for my coworkers in the next few days, and I can't wait!

Thanks for looking!

Craft Sale Update

I spoke to the lady in charge of the craft sale last Wednesday, and I showed her a few sample cards.  She loved them, and they're going to be in the craft sale!!!  Yaay! :D

I've been going crazy ordering some stuff to package the cards (I really could not just give her cards and envelopes without any form of packaging, right?), and I hope I get my order in time.  The sale is going to be on Dec. 20.

I'm so excited!!!
