Teacher Gift

This is one of the gifts we are giving Tate's teacher for Christmas.  Three families have pooled their money to get more things instead of coffee mugs, ornaments and candles.  LOL!  We asked her what her favorite candy is and she told us two things: Snickers and Skittles.  I thought I would put the goodies in one of those see through paint cans and decorated it.  I got my paint can from a store we have in Omaha called Mangelsen's.  

In addition, I used the Santa made from the SU scallop circle punch.  I got these directions from Tinkerin In Ink With Tanya.  It was so easy to make and so cute!  I showed Tate and he said Santa's hat needed something, so I put a pom pom (sp?) on it.  I got that from my chalking tool kit.  The blue ribbon is from a present I got a long time ago.  I try to keep any ribbon I get.  You never know when you may be able to recycle and use it.  I don't hoard a lot, but I do hoard ribbon.  I almost forgot I used Deck the Halls paper from CTMH.  

I hope she likes it!

Happy Stamping!

She will LOVE it! Such an adorable and thoughtful project!

Loved reading that you came up with a Santa Shop. My mom used to help with a project like that. Great idea!

I laughed out loud when I read your comment to me on what craft don't I do? There aren't many that I haven't attempted. In recent years I've concentrated on scrapping and stamping, but I have done a variety of types of crafts over the years, thanks to my mom!
