A Perfect Gift for......

I always have a hard time figuring out what to give the teachers (esp. since the kids are in middle/high school....all those teachers), bus drivers, dance teacher, taekwondo teacher, etc..... I think I have found this year's "go to" gift. The packaging makes it look so special.
I bought these tins from Papertrey ink. They hold 12 Hershey Nuggets so perfectly. Who doesn't love chocolate?
Each of the candies are wrapped with a mailing label that I brayered with Bashful Blue ink. I randomly stamped with a snowflake stamp from "Holiday Tag Team" using Chocolate Chip classic ink.
The belly band for the tin is made using both Bashful Blue (stamped with my jumbo Bold Snowflake wheel and a Bashful Blue ink cartridge) and Chocolate Chip cardstock. I sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa ink and tied a knot with the 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.
The greeting is made with the "Circle of Friendship" stamp set. I stamped the Holiday Hello message with Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla and Bashful Blue. Using my 1/2" circle punch, punch the center out of the sentiment stamped on the Bashful Blue cardstock. Adhere this circle to the Very Vanilla circle (which was punched out using the 1" circle punch). Mount all of this on a 1 1/4" circle punched from Choc Chip cardstock. Punch a hole in the top with the 1/8" handheld circle punch and tie to the chocolate chip ribbon with a piece of silver elastic cord.
That's all there is to it.....a perfect gift for the people who make a difference in the life of my children!!!
Until tomorrow....Happy Stamping everyone!
