{ Neighbor Gifts & Goodies }

I mentioned that I taught a class at church titled Neighbor Gifts & Goodies. I thought I would share a few of the ideas that I had on display. This first one was an idea for a child's little or big buddy at school {you may not have to worry about that at your elementary school}. The plastic cups were from Walmart, 4 for $1. Add a Pez, candy canes & some chocolate candies & your ready to go.

The idea of this class was to buy ordinary things & package them up cute with a clever tag for a budget friendly gift. Hope you enjoy!

This was wrapped onto a Hershey's bar. Everyone got a kick out of the poem.









If you want to see more, here is a list for you to check out.

haha- I LOVE the whisk. Did you just pull the metal apart to get the candy in? How cute.
I also love your fonts and tags.
I am going to have to show these to my mom- she will think they are great.
Have a good day.

Absolutely love these ideas. Do you have an idea for a rolling pin? My dear friend has been rolling her dough out with one handle missing , so that will be my gift to her.

You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead. See the link below for more info.
