Treat Boxes for the kids at School

It is that time of year. This year Grandma and Grandpa get to have the fun with the kids. Mommy (Jessica) has to work so we get to have the Emma and Aiden for the week end. Dad has been out of town since Oct 17 my son (Kurt) is in the Army Reverses and every so often he has to be out of town for several weeks, this time he will be back Nov 8.

I used the Marvy Extra Large green circle punch, Marvy Large lavender circle punch, Marvy Medium pink circle punch. You could put leaves on the front if you want. I wanted to put an Owl, make the Owl with Stampin’ up Owl punch but all three of us though it was to much so we decided not to do it.
So Lee and myself made bows and we thought that was perfect. I also used Martha Stewart punch and I can not think of the name of it but I would punch a 12 by 12 sheet of scrapbook paper all the way across and then fold it in half and that was the size of the handle. I put ribbon on top of the scrapbook paper to make it stronger.
Emma has a total of 17 kids in her class and 3 teachers, she is in pre school. Aiden has 26 kids in his class and he has 2 teacher and he is in 3rd grade.
By the time we where done we made a total of 68 treat boxes. So that is a little more than I need so I’m going to give one to Lee for her great niece and I’m sure Chris maybe has someone she would like to give some to also. If I have any left over I will take the candy out and save them for next year and maybe do this again. Thanks for stopping. Have a wonderful week end.
