Co-Worker Gifts

Here are some little gifts I made to take to work and give the people I work with. I cut the Popcorn box from TBBM at 5". I laid the box out on my gypsy and was able to get two boxes per 12" X 12" sheet of card stock. The patterned paper are from two different My Minds Eye Christmas Paper packs. The tan boxes with Twas The Night Before Christmas on them are from a pack I bought last year, the other papers are from one I got at Michaels this year. I used Scor-tape to adhere the boxes together. I bought a variety of snack mixes from the bulk food section of a local grocer and filled some clear treat bags that I bought at Michaels. A trick I learned to make filling the bags easiest is to place them empty inside the popcorn boxes and then I used a scoop to fill the clear bags. Since the popcorn boxes are narrower at the bottom then the top this made it easier to get the bags into the boxes and still get them fairly full. I used the twist ties that came with the bags to close them and then tied some ribbon around them. The ribbon is some I got from Michaels and it says Naughty but Nice on it in red and green text. I then used the Winter Frolic cartridge to cut a 2 1/4" tag and stamped it with a little stamp I had that says Hope Your Holidays are a Treat. I inked the ends of the tag with Memento Lady Bug ink and used the same ink to stamp the sentiment on my tags. Since I was having some trouble with my hands cramping I opted to not tie the tags to the ribbon like I had planned. Instead, I added a gold mini brad and attached the tag to the front of the box with some foam tape. Thanks for visiting.
