A Thoughtful Gift for My Dear Coworkers


I thought it would be fun to give a little treat to a few of the ladies at my work.  A small group of ladies agreed to be  take a name and be a secret pal to encourage and strengthen one another.  I can't tell you how very timely the small kindnesses have been, making my day bright.


I purchased kraft treat bags from Hobby Lobby and printed a description of the sweet treat using my computer and printer.  I simply ran them through with the folded edge first and used the flip function in Word so that the printing was readable when done.


The last step was to search the stash for some beautiful decorations. In this case I found some acetate butterflies and and vellum flowers stamped with my Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and die cut.  I colored the clear vellum with my Faded Jeans Distress Marker and shaped them before gluing onto the package.  Super fun and I think it did brighten my day and probably my coworkers' day as well.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
