“Be Mine” Treat Holder


I have been eyeing this die from SU for a long time. As soon as it came out, I knew I wanted it, but I resisted. Then school started this year and I met my new students, and then I met the parents. Well, one of my parents happens to be a SU rep, and I no longer had an excuse NOT to place an order. So of course, this die was the first thing on my list!!


I love how this little box goes together. It is really neat how it closes without needing any ribbon or adhesive!! A bunch of these may end up in the staff room this February!!

Hershey Kisses Treat


This quick and easy project is fun to make and maybe even get the kids involved! In fact, I may Help Em make them for her classmates this year (but with only 3 Kisses—this one holds 5.)


You need a 4 inch piece of cardstock that is long enough to hold however many Kisses you want to include lined up. On the 4” side, score at 1/2”, then at 1 3/4”, and then at 2 3/4”. Glue the kisses to the one inch section (I just used my ATG). Then adhere the 1 1/4” flap to the 1/2” flap and embellish as desired.

See? Easy-peasy!!
