What a crazy day it was yesterday!! The craft show at Selva Marina Country Club was so much fun, and it was so nice to meet so many new people face to face! Tomorrow I will spend a very busy day making more items for sale at the next craft show (tomorrow)… yikes!! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi… and a big thanks for your support too!
Today I’m sharing another craft show item, well actually two which were quite popular as teachers’ gifts for the Christmas and holiday season. LOL, I’ll be making more of these to have at the Saturday Craft Show at the Jacksonville Beach VFW… so if you missed out yesterday, stop by to see me… I told you I’d make more!
This is an ornament bursting with M&M’s chocolate candies…It’s plastic, so you really don’t have to worry about it being dropped on the way to school… if you have kids, you know what I mean . It’s also a quick and easy craft you can do with your kids!! It also lets them participate, and understand the value of their teacher, gifting, and hand made presents too!
Alternatively, I also made these pretty M&M Candy filled jars…. they’re very heavy glass and could easily survive a fall!
Each project had a Two Tags Die Cut, embellished with stitched felt elements… this one just happens to be the adorable little mittens.
When opened, a wonderfully thankful M&M Candy Christmas Poem is revealed…
The poem very descriptively describes how very special teachers touch and form young lives and minds.
I had so much fun embossing the candy jars!!! They were embossed using Versamark embossing ink and pewter stampin’ emboss powder. The cap was embellished with a northern flurry sizzlit die cut from Silver Glimmer Paper, and the silver band…. well, that’s tomorrow’s Super Saturday tutorial so I’ll have to keep it a secret for a moment or two!
Hope you’ll stop back by tomorrow for another FREE super saturday tutorial… I just love sharing things I’ve learned with all of you, and as you continue to show your support through orders at my online stampin up store, I couldn’t bear charging you for this stuff! Lots of hugs throughout the Christmas Holiday Season!
