You should have arrived here from Gale's blog THE HAPPY STAMPER.  Are you finding tons of cool ideas so far?!  Well here's another one - easy, simple, and oh so fun to give away.


WE WHISK YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS


The clear bags are from The Dollar Tree.  Pack of 20 for $1.00.
There is a WHISK in each bag with candy stuffed between the tines.
Also inside the bag are marshmallows. 
Of course you could always include homemade fudge, cookies, etc. as well.
The tags were made with FROM MY KITCHEN.
The white tab is on page 61 cut @ 3 1/2" and 2". 
The green frame is on page 66 cut @ 3 1/2" and 2".
Whisk on page 42 cut @ 4 1/4" for all 3 tags.

For my BLOG HOP CANDY, I will be giving away everything in the list below!  I have pictures of only some of the items listed.

  1. TLC Chatter Bookz Mini Album that spells FAMILY
  2. 10 Assorted 12"x12" double sided papers from Life's Journey
  3. Creative Memories sticker sheet with transparent quotes including: LOVE, CHERISH, THANKFUL, SMILE, LAUGHS, BLESSINGS, JOY, SWEET, BEAUTY, LAUGHTER
  4. K & Company K-Ology Grand Adhesions
  5. The Paper Studio Mirabelle 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" mat stack 80 sheets
  6. 30 Prima Rosebud flowers Summer mix:  Coral, Gold, Purple
  7. 20 Prima flowers Spring mix
  8. 50 Making Memories Blossoms with 25 Brads, In Bloom mix

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and have a USA shipping address.

I will be posting the winner here on Tuesday.  Isn't this fun!?!
