Every year I give my kiddles teacher a questionair to find out what they like so I don't give unwanted gifts during the year. Well, Aaron's teacher collects candles so I made her this card and gave her a new candle every month. I added a ribbon to the top and attached it to the first gift bag we gave her. She loved the candles! And Aaron loved to give them to her.

These are a few three inch cards I made. I love the littler
size. Perfect to put in lunchboxes or on coworkers desks for a little pick-me-up. Cut the Star and embellies using my Pazzles Creative Cutter. I swear I would run back into a burning building to save that machine...tee hee.
I made this watering can for Aaron's teacher. It was her end of the year gift. I cut it with my Pazzles. I filled it with Giradelli Chocolates and added a Target gift card. Target being her favorite place to shop. She loved it! I will probably make this again I really like the way they turn out and they are very easy to do.
I made these firecracker candy bar sliders for our annual neighborhood 4th of July BBQ and fireworks show. If you pull the ribbons (which are supposed to be the "sparks") at the top a candy bar comes sliding out. I got the instructions for the slider on Splitcoast Stampers but I made up the whole firecracker thing. I know its not the best but I decided to do something about 2 a.m. the day before the party. Hey it is what it is...LOL You can't tell very well from the pics but I versamarked stars on the red paper. Everyone loved them and that's all that mattered. If I make them again I think I will do a little more on the design end of them and also add their names.
