Crazy4Challenges #16 - Treat Packaging





This week I challenged the Crazy4Challenges team to create treat packages for unexpected guests. They can hold small presents or food. I promised extra points to the creations that included chocolate (as long as you share with ME!!!)!



I had some fun going through SCS and looking at the resource page for packaging ideas I had never tried. Today I am sharing three with you.

If you are interested, go to the resource page at SCS and in alphabetical order look for the following tutorials that were used on these projects:

Acetate Box (pictured to the left)

Diaper Fold Pouch (pictured to the right)

Double Pocket Bag (pictured at the top)

I just can't wait to see what the rest of the team has come up with for this challenge. I have a feeling we are all going to be dazzled this week!!!!


Now I would like to share with you a bit. On Wednesday, my very dear friends, our group called the Old Farts, had a blind potluck dinner. It was a fabulous night full of friendship, laughter, shared memories, recalling encounters with former students and their parents, wonderful food, and promises of future get-togethers. One of our members is a crafter/stamper and she was so kind to make treats for each of us. Since it fit so very perfectly with my challenge to the team this week, I decided to share Carol's creation with you.....and she does get extra points cuz it included chocolate. Following are pictures of Carol's treats -- the creation AND the chocolate and eggnog tea packets she gave each of us. You are just too sweet, Ms. Carol!!!!

Just in case you can't read it, this is the sentiment inside....

May your holiday

season be filled

with tranquil delights.



Have a fabulous weekend. I will be continuing the celebrations with friends this weekend.
