Halloween treat 'bags' for teachers!

Lemme just say that I am CRAZY over these little dudes.

First off, I have to (ok... don't HAVE TO..but I love to!) make treats, and or, goodies for the kids teachers.
I have 4 kids.

4 teachers.
some kids have more than one teacher.
That equals ... um... LOTS of teacher gifties.. (aight. so I'm no good at math..) and I *HAVE* to make my dollar stretch!!!
I made up some of these little fellas, and I even made so many that I sent some to my parents, and a little tin filled thingy for my dad...
THEN (as if that wasnt enough!) I put some organic baby food pouches in a little gift bag, made a cute little topper, and sent it to my wittle nephew, Tyson.

I shoulda got a picture of it. It was SO cute!
Anyway... here they are!

I cut an 8x8 sheet of cardstock in half, put 3 mini candy bars (snickers, 3 musketeers & milky way) in a treat bag, and stapled it all together. Made up some cute embellishments with the dollar section stamps at M's, made a few hundred paper roses, and you have a non-scary, cutesy Halloween treat bag!


cute, right?
ya, i know.

I've gotten a lot of comments/emails on my paper roses.
The best I can tell you is that I learned to make them from a few YouTube videos.
I would *LUBB* to make you a video of how I make mine, But I have NOT been successful in doing so.
If you have any ideas on how I can do a video, please, PLEASE let me know!
But just like scrapbooking, crafting, and handwriting, everyone's technique is a little different from another person.
If you like the roses, please check out some vids on youtube. Give it a shot! At least you can say you've tried!!

(I am actually thinking about doing up some collections of my roses to sell if that would help anyone... yay or nay?)

Speaking of those lil boogers, I took some pics of the roses I've made over the last few days... there are MOUNDS of them.
Wanna see?

And to give you a perspective of how small the smallest ones are...

Yes, I make them this tiny. My little rose 'buds' ...
I hope you enjoyed seeing my little treat bags, and my rose 'garden'.

 I've decided to enter my treat bags in the 'Getting Cricky' challenge this week.

  3. I LOVE the little roses! I think that you could sell those easily . . . combine them into color sets or something. I also love that you have so many pre-made. I have done things like this and found it makes crafting faster if I have some parts pre-made.
