Treat Boxes

Just a quick post to share a project I've been working on this morning. Tomorrow is the kids' Christmas pageant at our church, and both DD and DS will be shepherds. (Threw together some quick shepherds' headdresses this morning and a tunic for DD to wear. Thank goodness for my huge fabric stash and my trusty pair of pinking shears!!) I wanted to make little Christmas gifts for the kids to give to their Sunday School teachers after the pageant tomorrow, thanking them for all of their dedication and hard work so far this program year.

There wasn't much time to do anything elaborate (I'm starting to feel the time crunch), but I was so pleased to {finally} ink up these adorable nativity stamps from The Angel Company that I've had for a while now.
These stamps were perfect for dressing up the white favor box totes from the Dollar Tree that I keep on hand for just such projects. A little silver stamping on blue for the fronts, a few images stamped in blue directly on the other sides of the boxes, acetate bags filled with holiday Hershey Kisses, some swirly blue and silver ribbon to tie up the treat bags, and DONE!

I made these with the Simon Says Stamp challenge (to use silver, blue, and white) in mind. I love these colors! I'm also entering this over at Cute Card Thursday, where the challenge is One for the Kids (my interpretation: "One for the Kids . . . to give to their Sunday School teachers.")

Thanks for checking in on my little slice of bliss for today!!

Wonderful treat bags for your kids to give their S.S. teachers and I can just see the glow on their faces as they give something their Mom made so special. I really need to get some of those totes to have on hand...very convenient, especially when you need something in a hurry...which is most of the time. LOL

Aren't these cute?? I do like those Angel Company stamps, and they're perfect for the gifts. I'm glad you didn't stop to make the boxes too; taking a shortcut and buying the boxes to dress up saves significant time!
