Gift Givers mini candy bar slider

For my last workshop, I wanted to do a simple make and take geared towards Christmas because we all know that if we don't start thinking early, we don't start preparing early. I wanted to do a simple treat giving idea that was easy to reproduce in larger quantities. So, I paired three items from the Holiday Mini catalog: Stocking Punch, Frostwood Lodge DSP, and the stamp set Gift Givers. (and of course, who doesn't like a little blingage too...).
It's just a 3x3 piece of DSP wrapped and adhered together slightly larger than the candy bar so it slides up and down easily, then punch a hole through both layers, thread some ribbon through the hole, drop your candy bar onto the ribbon so that it "sinks" to the bottom and then tie at the top.

CS: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Punches: Stockings Builder punch, Itty Bitty pack(flower)

Tiny Tea Cups and Petite Pocket die

I recently posted a "Pay It Forward" on Facebook to the first 5 people to comment on my status would get a handmade gift from me sometime from now until the end of the year.....but I like to get things done and sent out or life gets in the way and I forget. Anyway, I decided that since it's fall, I drink alot of hot tea, I would use the Petite Pocket die (WHICH I LOVELOVELOVE) and make these to hold a tea bag. And then of course since it had to be handmade, I added the tag that said handcrafted. I have a couple of other things I want to send out along with this, so I am going to get busy on those...

Supplies: Tiny Tea Cup, Tiny Tags stamps
CS: Early Expresso, Whisper White
DSP: Brights Designer Series Pack
Itty Bitty Punch pack, Mini Brads, Bakers Twine, Jewelery Tag Punch, Postage Punch, 1 3/8 square punch, Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon.
