Happy Friday and thanks for visiting! It's back-to-school time (my kids started this past Monday), and in honor of that the Fabulous Friday theme over on the Sisters in Stamping blog this week is gifts for teachers. It must be so stressful those first couple of days for teachers and nothing makes me feel better when I am stressed than some chocolate!! I created this super-cute favor using my Big Shot with the Fry Box Bigz L die and coordinating All About Sugar stamp set (buy the die and stamp set in a bundle and save 15%!) and Cherry on Top DSP stack. I even created a little mini note card to add a few words of encouragement and thanks.
How cute is this mini note card? It measures 2-1/2" square - the perfect size for this "Enjoy" banner from the All About Sugar stamp set. I added a pop of color behind it with a small square of Cherry on Top DSP.
Above are close-ups of the stamped elements of the embellished fry box. I used colors from the DSP for my color palette - crushed curry, cucmber crush and watermelon wonder. I had to hand-cut the "Sweet Treats" element, but used my Washi Label punch to cut the "For You" piece. A few rhinestones for some bling and baker's twine to tie on the tag and I was done! The Kisses are put inside of a clear translucent envelope from which I trimmed the flap. Easy-peasey!
Here's a look at the finished fry box. What teacher wouldn't love to receive one of these?
I hope you were inspired by my creation and will try making some of these yourself. The fry box is easy to embellish, you can cut one from a half-sheet of card stock and they are a great size for candy favors. Last year I even created a little set of notecards (see that here).
