Goodies & Goodie Bags

Last night I busted out 16 little Peppermint Patty Snowmen! There are a total of 4 circles with a York Peppermint Patty sandwiched between the bottom two circles. Also, there are pop dots between the other layers of circles. I just put the final touches on them tonight so I can hand them out to some co-workers tomorrow. Of course I scrap lifted them from Michelle from the cricut message board, but they were pretty easy to make. It was pretty tidies getting the arms and holly laid out on my Gypsy. I hid a lot of other parts and did some major resizing! I cuttlebugged the circles using the dots folder and used blue ink around the edges. The noses were cut free handed and I used Stickles for the eyes and berries. I added the knotted ribbon for the scarf and I cut a tag for him to hold. I had this cute little stamp that came in a set at Michael's that I thought went along well with this little guy.

I also made 5 Santa Pants gift bags for Karli's daycare friends. I stole this idea from JeansCraftyCorner. They aren't perfect, but I figured they would do for a bunch of 3 year olds!I loved the idea and am sure the kids will love them. I filled them with 2 pop-up coloring books (from Oriental Trading), crayons, puzzle and of course CANDY!! The left side is the front and the right is the back.  The To/From Stamp came from Michael's.  Thanks for looking!


  1. Your snowmen are adorable. Your co-workers are going to love them. Those Santa bags are precious too. The kiddies will enjoy receiving them.

    Happy Holidays,

  2. Love that aerial shot of the snowman. I must try that.
    I have a blog award for you at my blog please stop by and pick it up.

  3. I Love these ideas..I saw the same Santa pants gift bag but when I was going to make them I couldn't find the site that I had seen them on so I made reindeer bags instead..

    You did such a beautiful job on both projects.

  4. Those are so adorable! I'm so going to tell my mom about this idea! She is a teacher as well and was looking for something for her co-workers for the holidays.
