Blogger's challenge #70: Gift

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!

Friday=Blogger's challenge. This weeks challenge was to make something you can give as a gift. I didn't have a lot of time to put into this challenge, as I am going away for a girls scrapbook weekend, but I did want to participate. So, I used Kerry Donovan Casey's idea and altered some crystal light containers and put candy in them and I will use them to give to the teachers at christmas. Very simple to make and fun to make as well (plus you get to recycle).
This will be my last post for the weekend, but I am hoping to post something everyday next week. I have big plans for a productive weekend, and a fun one.


Earlier in the week I made these spider reeses treats. I made one for each of my girls for the weekend. Another simple project, but "sweet". These would also make great halloween treats for your childs class. I think I may make this a Mommy and Abbey project and she can make them for her class at Halloween. Well, That is all for Friday. I hop eyou all have a great weekend. If you get a chance go check out what creative ideas the ladies at the bloggers challenge group came up with. You won't be dissapointed!!!!!

Great ideas! I love how you reused the Crystal Light containers in your first project. And, the spiders are the cutest things (and my favorite candy, too).

These are quite fun and clever. The Christmas ones are so pretty and I love the Spider treats. I did those with Mint Patties but love the idea of using Reese's Peanut Butter Cups too.
