Blogger's Challenge...I Goofed!!!
Happy Friday! We've had an ice storm in New England today. That's why I'm posting a little later than usual. Between my little one's school closing, my school not closing, my hubby driving into work only to find out that it was closed and without electricity, and then a pair of broken eye glasses...it's been an interesting day here! Then to add to my many adventures...I sort of created the wrong thing for this week's Blogger's Challenge...ugh! This week's theme is really Holiday Ornaments or Decorations. For some reason, I thought that this week's theme was Holiday Gift Giving, but that was one of the weeks that I missed a little while back. Sorry for the mix up folks. If you need some wonderful decoration or ornament ideas, then please click on the Blogger's Challenge logo over in my sidebar. If you want to see a decorated tea tin from Papertrey Ink, then you came to the right place...lol! I thought that these would make great little treats for the teachers. I filled them with Hershey sticks. I know that those are one of my favorite treats...lol! I picked up this fun penguin paper at Michaels, but I've also seen it at AC Moore. I used Papertrey Ink's Holiday Treats set for the label and a Doodlebug Designs button with a tiny bit of black gingham ribbon for the center. I used my Mega Scallop Circle punch for the lid (one of the penguin images fit perfectly) and then I tied the tin shut with some black gingham ribbon. This idea came from Nichole Heady's blog. You can find the directions to her creation here. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you are warm and cozy tonight...Toodles! :D
