Kiddo Crafting Weekend

This past weekend, my little "niece" came and visited me on Friday night for craft night!  We made her goody bags for her classmates.  We had a blast!  We made Reindeer food and decorated the containers..  Whimsie Doodles had the Reindeer Food Tags available to download for free (  I printed out some tags from  for the Candy Cane holders (LOVE THEM) and we also made M&M treat bags with a Christmas Tree/Scalloped Circle Topper.  

Lauren thought she was big stuff because we stayed up until after midnight working!  We ran out of time and didn't have a chance to make her teachers' gifts.  So, I whipped up something pretty quick Sunday night for her two teacher's and her sister Lilly's two preschool teachers. I was super excited with how they turned out!  My wonderful husband found this app for our Lexmark printer that I can print out handwriting practice paper.  I remembered that and voila--the idea for the treat pails formed!  Lauren's teachers get the ones with cursive and Lilly's teachers get the print.
I purchased this awesome "Teacher" stamp set from My Favorite Things ( that I used on the top of the pail.  I also had some seed packets that I made a sleeve for to use one of the other stamps on it. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! 

I wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
