This is an altered Crystal Light container (which I have many). I just covered it in snowflake paper, tied a ribbon around it and decorated the front and lid with some paper cut with my Nestabilities and a punched snowflake. Inside the container are 13 York peppermint patties decorated with the same snowflake decoration and two candy canes to fill in the empty space. I am making these for Brent's teachers. He has four teachers he wants to give gifts to it will be these and something else small. They are nothing fancy but fun to do.
This coming week I want to make some kind of Thanksgiving place card and/or favor. My guest list keeps growing - Brandon has invited both his girlfriend and his best friend. I also need to empty the boxes at the top of the stairs. They have been there quite a while and they need to disappear! I took Jessica Sprague's Stories in Hand class. My binder finally got here yesterday so I need to get all the pages cut and put in the binder. They are all printed out and ready.
The challenge for last week was to use a template. I did not use a template. This week's challenge is a unique one. Each of the participant's is to make a challenge for the next person. My challenge is to recycle - create something from a throw away item. Kind of like my Crystal Light container. I keep lots of different containers and stuff and would like to get some ideas on using them.
Happy Sunday! Day 23 of NaBloPoMo.
