Fall Thank You for Teachers

Today, I wanted to share with you the Fall Thank You I sent to my son's teachers.   These are cute post it note holders with a fall theme.  I give these out often to not only teachers, but friends and family.

For the chevron background I used Stampin Up's "Positively Chevron" Background Stamp in Versa Mark Ink and Clear Embossed it.  The fall leaves are from a retired set from Stampin Up called, "Gently Falling".

I colored the leaves with distress inks and was pleased with how they turned out for my first try at using them.

I personalized the back with a punched out heart and stamped Bryan with Lawn Fawn's "Violet ABC's".

Super simple thank you for almost anyone.  If you missed my post yesterday for the Halloween Treat Bags stop by here.

Happy crafting,

Class Halloween Treat Bags

Happy Halloween!  I have missed my craft room terribly, but I have found my way back to make my son's Halloween Treat Bags for school.

Here is how I made them:

I used treat bags from the Dollar Tree, they came 40 for $1.  Can't beat that deal.  I then used the Top Note retired die from Stampin Up for the topper of my bag.  I wanted to give that some glimmer so I sprayed it with shimmer paint.  The Witches Hat is from another retired Stampin Up set, "Wicked Cool".  I stamped in black clear embossed to give it some more shine and texture.    I punched an oval and embossed it with the dots folder.  If  you look close you can see that I actually used the back side.  The "BOO" sentiment, which I changed to "EEK!" later on is Lawn Fawn's Violet ABC's.

I folded the treat bag over and stapled the banner and topper.  I then covered that up with the Witches Hat and oval punch with foam dots.

For the back I stamped my son's name Bryan on the back the the Lawn Fawn Violet ABC's.  I am getting a lot of use out of that set already.

I hope you enjoyed and it in spires you to do your own.

Happy Crafting,
