I've included a picture of an individual treat bag below:

Lookie what I found at Wally World! It is 'Candy Corn' Popcorn, can you believe it?!?! I knew the mini bags would be cute dressed up like the hot cocoa mix. So, after printing the 'title' on white, I layered the three colors of cardstock, used my candy corn stamp from SU, and tied it with coordinating ribbon. I like how they turned out. Another quick and easy treat! I'll have these made up for my booth, as well.

This is another little 'treat' I'm selling at my booth. I got the idea for this from someone, somewhere, a long time ago. My version is alittle different, but I like the way it turned out. I used stamps from SU and the stir & sip sentiment from Papertrey. I think this hot cocoa card is a great little gift for anyone.
Also, I am on the committee for the Christmas Breakfast for Alyssa's school staff and I thought that I would make these up in our school colors and set them on the tables in baskets for the staff to pick up.
Besides the tins from Papertrey, these are my favorite containers to fill and give as quick gifts! You can do anything with them, for any occasion. I've made these up for my booth in October. I filled each one with something different, like candy corn, malted milkballs, runts, sugar babies and snack mix. I've also adhered a circle to the lid of each one, and I know you cannot really tell, but each one has a different stamped sentiment on it. Finally, I tied a coordinating ribbon around each lid.

Here are the four different cards that I put together from my Christmas card kit from CTMH. First, they are not the 'normal' Christmas colors, but I liked the look. Second, I will openingly admit it was a 'kit', because sadly, I don't have time to come up with my own designs. However, I am very pleased with the outcome of the cards. You cannot really tell from the scan, but they already had the distressed look -- which I like!

Here's another tea tin from Papertrey Ink. Did I mention that I love these tins? LOL I used a patterned paper with 'Octoberish' colors and tied it up with a purple satin ribbon. Inside, I filled it with Hershey's kisses.
I have a couple of these tins left to decorate. I'm making them for my booth.

These are a few of the memo pads I decorated for my booth in October. I have several more that are covered with patterned paper, but I've not tied the ribbons yet. (If you've not notice, I like lots of ribbon!?!?) LOL
I am hoping these will be good sellers, since they make the perfect gift for teachers, co-workers, or even stocking stuffers.
I've tried to do all of them in different patterns, hoping there will be something for everyone.
I rarely scrapbook anymore, since I've been doing more paper craft items lately. I go to a crop once a month and scrapbook then, but I hardly ever scrapbook at home. (Never thought I'd say that!?!?!) On Labor Day, however, my sister, Kim, and I, wanted to scrapbook. So, we spent the better part of the afternoon at her house trying to get something accomplished with our piles of pictures. I decided I was going to work on Alyssa's horse camp pictures, so here's my cover page. Even though it looks quiet simple, I spent more time on it than the other couple of pages I got done. (I didn't notice that my ribbon wasn't straight until I scanned it...I'll have to fix that.) Anyway, we will get together to crop next weekend, so I guess finishing up the horse camp pictures will be my 'project'.

This is my favorite tin from Papertrey Ink! It is called the tea tin. It is tall & slender and just the right size for me to fill with Hershey's chocolate sticks. (However, the possibilities are endless with what you could put inside.)
Anyway, I decorated the tin with K&Company paper and used a coordinating bazzill to scallop punch a circle for the top. I then layered khaki Offray ribbon and SU stitched ribbon to tie up around and knot at the top. Lastly, I stamped a pumpkin image with SU chocolate chip ink to add to the front. I loved how it turned out! I am going to decorate several of these for October!
