Thoughtful Branches Bundle-Teacher Gift

Have you seen the new clear tiny treat boxes in the Stampin' Up! catalog?  They are SO versatile and I just love them!  We made these little boxes using Thoughtful Branches bundle in my stamp clubs this month.  And although we used wrapped candy to tuck inside, they are food safe, so you can fill them with candy corn or gummy bears or anything you like.  I love the versatility of look–appearance–as well as usage.  It's back-to-school season, and this is a perfect teacher gift!

Thoughtful Box

I opted to use the Moroccan Designer Series Paper to wrap the box because of its warm colors which fit right into the approaching fall season.  Although we still have a few weeks until autumn is officially here, the weather is already turning, the kids are back at school, and I'm done wearing linen for awhile!  For the rest of my little box project, I just pulled colors from the DSP:  Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze, and Dapper Denim.  I did score the DSP at 2" intervals so that you get a nice crisp band around the box.

We punched out 2 of the Flower Medallions in Cajun Craze and then crumpled them up and then straightened them out.  This is a great stress-reliever!  Simply cross-stack them and adhere together.  Then layer on the other punch shapes and finish off with one of those fantastic little enamel accents.  I love them!  And the little gold leaf?  It's from the Thoughtful Branches bundle–which is absolutely chockablock with creative options!

If you need to make a lot of these for back-to-school treats or office co-worker gifts or Sunday School teacher treats, let me recommend butterscotch discs–that's what I filled mine with.  Although you can always go with chocolate, hard candy is normally much more cost effective–and it has a longer shelf life.  Not that I think these will last long:)  So that's it for today–a quick and easy teacher gift.  

Remember that Thoughtful Branches Bundle is a limited time offer and is only available through the end of August or while supplies last.  Get yours before it's too late!
