Mini Candy Holders

Here are the mini candy holders I made this weekend. I saw all of the ideas on you tube and will attach the links. The are all made with Stampin' up punches and were really easy to put together. I tweaked the sizes a bit to fit the candy I was using which was a small box of junior mints for the santa and snowman and a mini twix bar for the tree.

Tear off calendars - coaster

Here are the coaster calendars I made. Used the cricut for the year - Base Camp at 1". I found the tear off calendar template over at splitcoast. Here is the link:

Post-it holders

I love how these turned out. I put a little velcro circle on the tab to hold it shut and use the cute little rhinestone brads from Stampin' Up. The paper is all from a retired DSP from Stampin' Up.
I used cardstock and DSP together. It is cut 3 1/4 x 6 3/4 and scored at 3 1/8 from each end.

Teacher gifts

Whew - Why do I wait to the last minute to do this stuff? Next year somebody needs to remind me in November to get a move on this stuff! : )
I made teacher gifts for all the daycare teachers and pre-school teachers all weekend. Some are the coaster calendars and others are post-it holders. I also made some mini candy holders that I saw on you tube. I tweaked them a bit to fit a small box of junior mints, but they were pretty quick and easy to make and oh so cute!

Just getting started

So, I guess I am finally giving in to becoming a blogger! I have seen so many great sites for all of the cricut website users and I decided I better give it a shot. You see, my memory is not so great anymore. I'm not sure if it is because I am getting older or because I have 2 toddlers.....or maybe a combo of both. At any rate, the very least I will get out of this is a place to keep track of the daily happenings so that next year when I go to scrap them, they will be here.
