Happy Holidays! and Teacher Gift Shares!

Happy Holiday Blog Friends!! Can you BELIEVE how close it is!! Are you ready?? I ALMOST am.. I think I say this each posting! :) BUT really I think I am.. today we will wrap wrap wrap... and I want to make some special tags! and then the baking begins..I have to wait til this week or else I just eat it! :)

WARNING LOTS of PHOTOS to follow.. you were just given fair warning! :)

So I thought I would share with you today the kiddos teacher gifts!!

I made these CUTE bag in a box treats after being inspired by my friend Mara- I did them ALMOST the same.. I just did my box a bit different I have bad luck with folding so I just cut the ends and folded them up.. otherwise all the same!
Here is inside.. there is alot of space in these little cuties! We put in candy, a card and gift card, with room to spare! :)
Next up.. a captured card case (how I LOVE this template!) I LOVED the new die also from PTI.. but wanted to do a BIG version AND make it before it was even released so I set to work to whip up my own.. BIG loopy bow!! I really LOVE how it came out.. and will/did :) make it again! This one is for Amandas Teacher-
Bow View-
and Inside.. made her a post it note and matching pen set, candy , gift card... and still room in the box!

Card Amanda made her!
Lastly for Amanda we sent these cuties I saw on Pinterest! it was the LAST Christmas treat I will ever make for a grade school class.. BOOO!!!! Next year she is on to Middle School!
and FINALLY!!!

Here are the gift card holders I whipped up for Justins teachers... he doesnt like girly.. I may have pushed the envelope on this one.. BUT there is NOOOO BLING, or SPARKLE.. so to me that is safely non girly! :) He was so worried he would be the only one in class giving a gift.. so he went in early AND in the end didnt get them all out before BUT others gave gifts so he was ok! :) again MAMA was right.. I told him many times dont worry! ;)
THANKS for stopping by!! I hope you all are having a WONDERFUL Holiday Season! :) I will be back with a few more shares.. I figured I better stop here! :)
Have a GREAT day!!

Your treat bags are a lovely gift. The donut is too cute. You did a great job on the cute gift card holders. Your box is also beautiful!
