Fall Fest Treats

These were so fun to make.....because they were in my first holiday care package to our college student and his roommates!  How fun! 

 
Yes, they may be 18 years old but who doesn't love to get a little treat?  They aren't that old! *Ü*


Cardstock:  Whisper White
Stamp Set:  Fall Fest, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Accessories:  Two Tone Old Olive Baker's Twine, 1/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Note Tag Punch, Fall Fun Framelits, Big Shot
The cauldrons were 6 in a package in the $1 bin at Target.

 
What a fun box to put together for them.  Anyone have any good ideas for fun care package boxes for college students?
 
 
A couple of weekends ago we headed back to UC Berkeley for Parents Weekend.  It was so good to see Benjamin again, man we miss that kid!  He is doing great, loves it there, is rocking it academically and having a great time!  His roommates are awesome kids and we could not be happier for him....except he's there and we are here.  But you can see, I'm almost over it!  Ha!   
 
 
It was busy and crazy and fun there with 30,000 other parents!  And the best part is he will be home in a few weeks for Thanksgiving!!! Whoop!

Gratitude For Days Kit

I loved this kit from the first moment I saw it.  Library style pocket cards feed right into my love of school supplies and I knew I would enjoy playing with this one.  We really don't do the anything for the days leading up to Thanksgiving even though we are very grateful...so I decided to turn them into fall or even Halloween treats.
 
 
I assembled the pockets and stamped on each card with the
'Remember This Day' stamp from the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set and then filled them with candy.  For the outside, I made a tag using the Grateful For You sentiment from Merry Everything and the coordinating Note Tag punch. The pumpkins were made with the small oval punch and an Old Olive Blossom flower punch behind them for color.  They are tied up with the string that comes in the kit.

 
This is how the kit comes with plenty of clips to hang as a banner if you want, but I chose to use them individually.  I'll have plenty of uses for those clips later.
