Halloween Party treats !!!

Hi Everyone!!
Just wanted to share what I was up to this weekend !!!
My daughters classes have "party's" each holiday where parents all bring a treat and the kids get to eat, do crafts and play games!!
So I was in charge of bring the "sweet" item so I made chocolate covered pretzel rods !
I made 81 total !!!!
Some were made with sprinkles for the Kindergarten class and the M&M ones for my other daughters 3rd class, plus staff and some for the ladies at the post office ♥
I put them in individual bags, tied ribbon at the bottom and used fun plastic rings and put them on there too, something fun the kids can have after they are done eating !!

These are some of the supplies I used!
When making chocolate treats, truffles etc... I always use Almond Bark in a double boiler, it melts nice and sets up so much thinker and nicer then melting chocolate!

Hope you enjoyed seeing the treats I made for the school !!!

School Bulletin Board !!

Now that both my kiddos are in school,
 I have more time to help and volunteer at their school.
Each class in the school has a bulletin board down the main hallway in the school they are responsible for.
This is the first year my daughter has had a male teacher and like most men...the bulletin board is not their priority LOL !
I made the "mistake" of asking who is doing it because it looked awful..... so guess who is now in charge?
The 3rd grade in both counties go to a Farm Day field trip, so I thought I would do a board of our trip

The borders and cows were cut using a SVG Cutting Files... *however they have not been released yet keep an eye out the beginning of November for these !
I had Ann design these for the bulletin board, I added blue twine for the boys and pink twine, udders and pink eyelash eyes for the girls.
I used a 1 1/2" circle punch to put the kids faces in the cows!

For the banner I bought material and cut it with pinking sheers.
Then sewed the top to feed the rope through the material
Cut strips of material and tied them on to keep it from slipping
Also the letters are just a font I had in the computer

 I hope you enjoyed seeing my bulletin board
Since this is my "duty" for the school year you will be seeing more !!!
The banner strips around the board will be a new file from SVG Cutting Files as well.
I had a hard time finding just plain colors so I'm happy to have a file to customize my own !!!
On the very bottom I used the print and cut feature to write the teachers name and grade!

SVG Cutting Files ~ Gift Galore Challenge !

Hey everyone its the 15th of the month !!!!
No, no not pay day :-( its the NEW challenge over at SVG Cutting Challenge !!!
This months is called Gifts Galore !!!
I made these personalized hand sanitizer bottles for the staff at school !!!

Our colors are green and yellow and Home of the Beavers !!!
So I found these large green hand sanitizer bottles at Target and used Goo Gone to remove the front label
Next I used a NEW file from SVG Cutting Files (the Beaver) and printed them on a printable vinyl from Square 1 vinyl.
And yellow outdoor vinyl for the names

This will be their Halloween gift so I used the print and cut feature again and used the Jaded Blossom Tag Treat die to cut it out.
I tied ribbon on each bottle by tying in a rubberband ! That way they can easily remove the bow to use the hand sanitizer
Please join us for the challenge over at SVG Cutting Files !!!

Jaded Blossom Release and Blog Hop !!!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Jaded Blossom's October Release Blog Hop.  
Now if you're here from the Jaded Blossom Blog you're in the right place, if you're just passing thru start at the beginning because you don't wanna miss anything.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.
If you missed my projects this week here is the highlight of it
Here's what I created for you today !!!!
Mini Candy Cornucopia's !!!

I used the NEW Jaded Blossom stamp set "Lets Talk Turkey" also the Candy Charm and banner dies and the Flag die 2

How did I make these???
I tried several different methods until I found the perfect one !!!
I used my steamer and put the cones inside one at a time, when it was really HOT
***I recommend wearing rubber gloves this way you can shape the cone's easily***
There is no set time to leave them in, watch the cone once it starts to lose its shape take it out,
with one hand reshape the round opening and
with the other hand curl up the bottom with your finger
Hold them in your hand shaped like that for a minute or so allowing the sugar cone to "set" back up and harden.
And that's it! fill with your favorite candy !
I used peanut M&M's then coved with saran wrap

I also used some Trendy Twine to make it look pretty ♥

I hope you enjoyed my project !!!
Let me know if you make any of these for the holidays !!
