Today is the last day of school before Easter so I sent some treats to be passed out to the kids in Caleb's class.
I totally stole this idea from Skip to My Lou but she took the idea from someone else, too. Anyway, I can't (or wouldn't) take credit for these darn cute "carrots". I got the cake decorating bags with my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby, bought some Cheetos, raided my wrapping paper closet for the ribbon, and went to town. If you decide to make these, I recommend wearing a glove or using a ziploc bag to handle the Cheetos. I just stuck my hand in a ziploc bag and it worked great.
I thought I would make something else for the teachers. I had 12 Hershey Nuggets left from making nugget boxes before and I needed to make 4 little boxes. So, they each got three pieces of chocolate. I used the double-sided designer paper from Stampin' Up (this paper is no longer available), Wishing You the Best stamp set and some white grosgrain ribbon. I really like how they turned out and they were so quick to make. I'll probably make a bunch more to have ready for my next craft fair.
I'm OVER THE MOON about the donations. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thanks to Deanna for letting me know about the Oprah show that will be on today. It is going to feature some families dealing with autism and also some people from Autism Speaks. Check it out!
