school year end treats

Another school year is over! We said good-bye to grade three and kindergarten this year. The kids are excited for what summer brings! Me - not so much! I think they may forget that I still have my Stampin' business to run and that we just can't spend every waking moment eating ice-cream, riding bikes and playing at the park. (Wouldn't that be nice, right?)

I have previewed my little teacher appreciation gifts previously on my blog but I wanted to share what I filled my coffee gift cups with. A little coffee and Baileys might be just what the doctor ordered after 10 months with a room full of kids!  

The girls and I create these little treat bags for their friends. Who am I kidding, it was mostly I. They had strict instructions to use three pieces of candy and they all had to be neatly lined up and facing the same way. They totally are going to need therapy one day.

Nearly all the supplies for these treat containers came from this months Paper Pumpkin Kit! The kit was themed to celebrate the 4th of July in the USA. I mixed the kit with a little Calypso Coral & Marina Mist to make it have a summer feel. I think they turned out great. The best part was that I had no stress about designing, cutting paper and ordering supplies. It was all there for me! 

Have you heard about Paper Pumpkin yet? Each month you get a surprise kit delivered to your door for a delightful crafting escape! It comes with all the supplies, materials, a stamp set and a mini stamp pad - all for $24.95 (including shipping & taxes, CAD)!!! You seriously need to try it out!

Well - officially - Happy Summer my Dolce friends!!!! I hope you find some time to be creative! (Lord knows it may be a bit hard with a few kids running around!)
