Today is Day 5 of Teacher Appreciation Week!! Its the last day! We had a great week showing off different projects for the teachers! Here is a quick rundown for what I did for the week:
Day 1-K-Cup Holders
Day 2- Lip Balm Purse
Day 3-Sticky Pad Holder Stand
For Day 5, I am going to show you a SO VERY SIMPLE project that I made for this week.
Its a Chocolate Nugget Tin! Here are the supplies I used:
Tin (mine is from a company called Speciality Bottle. Click HERE for the website)
Hershey Chocolate Nuggets (12 per tin)
12 strips of patterned card stock cut into 1"x 3" strips. (I used DCWV The Grade School Stack for my project)
Solid piece of card stock. Mine is the blue piece for the belly band, and I cut it at 2 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Embellishments to decorate for a teacher theme.
Scotch Quick Dry
So, I took my 12 pieces of chocolate and my 12 pieces of patterned paper, and I wrapped the paper around the nuggets. I used a bit of Scotch Quick Dry to keep the paper adhered together, but not adhered to the chocolate. It should be able to slide of the piece of candy. I did that 12 times.
Next, I put the candy inside the tin, and got ready to make my belly band. To make the belly band, all I did was fold it around the tin. No scoring, no matching fold lines, just fold it around. Make sure its kind of snug, but not to snug where you cant pull it off. Glue the one end of the belly band to the other and then its all ready to keep you tin closed!
Finally, add your decorations! I just made mine very simple. The teacher I gave one to last year said that it was so cute she didn't want to open it. Well, that ment she did not get a chance to enjoy the chocolates, so I did not make these ones as nice because I want to them enjoy it! Then, when all the candy is eaten, the teacher can use this tin to add paper clips, tacks, stickers, etc to it!
OK all! That's it! I hope you enjoyed my projects this week for Teacher Appreciation Week! If you couldn't get the projects done in time this year, remember my blog for next year!!!
Hope to find you Craftin' and Stampin'!
