We made sweet treats for the teachers this year. The kids were thrilled to hand them out today. It all began with some color inspiration. Isn't this a wonderful combination from the Design Team at Colour Q?
I began with Elegant Soiree papers to capture the blue in the color palette. Cut to width and stitched on the sides, it makes a pretty patterned pouch to hold your treasures. For this project it's Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies! They are delicious and are part of my inspiration colors! I put two in each Large Cello Bag, slipped them into my paper pocket and tied it all up with a Real Red Striped Ribbon.
My ribbon embellishments were created with our Snowflake Punch cut from Whisper White Cardstock and "glitterfied" with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The buttons are a gorgeous shade of Bermuda Blue. Using a die to cut out a doily, I softened the edges with Crumb Cake Classic Ink. The polka-dot print is a retired pattern in Kiwi Kiss color and a 2 1/2" Circle Punch was the perfect size. A Scallop Circle Punch was matched to my red stamped image from last years Vintage Labels stamp set. The center sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Rub-Ons collection. Watching Sabrina work on these little details brought back such great memories. I used to LOVE rub-ons when I was young .... to be honest - I still do! These little cuties were the perfect size for my 1" Circle Punch and I raised them up with a Dimensional.
These were such a joy to make with the kids. They loved helping put it all together ... even the baking! They were so proud to hand them to their teachers today - and I was proud of both of them.
I'm glad you had the time to stop by. Be sure you go see the amazing projects at ColourQ this week and thanks so much for visiting with me again!
