Sunday School Tags, Reindeer Treats, & More

Sunday, December 24, 2017

Merry Christmas Eve, y'all!  Just popping in to share a few last-minute gifts that Adina and I made for the three-year-olds in my Sunday school class.  Enjoy!
I started the tags by stamping the ornaments in Jet Black ink and partially die-cutting them with my Big Shot.  I then hand-cut around their hangers, as well as their paper-pieced, gingham tops, and stamped the "Let us adore Him" sentiments in Garden Green ink.  Their centers were gold-embossed with the sweet, manger image, using this fabulous, new, glitter powder I found.  I'd been using one I'd purchased from Ranger, but it was NOT making me happy.  On a whim and date night my hubby and I took to Michael's, I might add, he convinced me to purchase this new one from Recollections.  I knew I needed a new one but hadn't yet had a spare moment to do my research and didn't want to spend our precious dollars on another crappy powder.  I'm thrilled this one embosses so smoothly and the glitter is an added bonus.  Woot!  Woot!  Little, ribbon bows and Baker's Twine, to attach them to their individual treats, complete the look.
The bags were stuffed with Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats which were a HUGE hit with our kiddos and super simple to make.  Tips: I cut 16 from a 9" x 13" pan.  The melted chocolate took a couple of hours to harden; and in order to provide a more even surface for the candy eyes and M&M noses, just so they weren't setting all wonky, we embellished the side of the treats that faced the bottom of the pan.
And, finally, I'll put an end to my rambling, since I know you're all super busy with Christmas being tomorrow and all, with a picture of how these festive tags, that I made for Paper Sweeties' November Release, look all dressed up on some of my jars of apple butter for family and friends.  So fun!
I'm off to frost a Peppermint White Velvet Cake for Jesus' birthday.  Mmm!  Thanks, as always, for visiting!  Have a blessed Christmas, dears!
