Hi, everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous week so far. On Monday I asked my husband, Tom, if he wanted me to make treats for him to take to work on Friday. I told him if that would embarrass him, I understood, and between you and me, I really didn't expect him to want me to. But he said SURE. Do you know how good that made me feel?! So my next question was okay, how many co-workers will be there Friday. He said 50! I thought, what in the world have I gotten myself into. LOL
I decided instead of trying to cut paper with one of my electronic die cutting machines (because mass producing and electronic speed do not always go hand in hand), I would use my Sizzix Big Shot. Tom recently bought me a Die Cut from Amazon that I had in the cart that makes a little sleeve / bag type thingie. This would be perfect to stuff a few pieces of candy in!
It was very quick to cut out 50 of them because I was able to run through 4 pattern papers with the die at one time. Joy!
I lined them up, and adhered tear and tape on them all. Folded them. Shazam. I'm on a roll!
Then I stamped and punched out 50 various Halloween tags. Too easy, drill seargeant.
Got my crop-a-dile to punch holes in a thick stack at once.
Dumped candy all over my desk. Grabbed a few pieces to stuff the bags.
Cut twine and threaded that through the holes and tag.......
It sounds like a lot now that I'm writing this all out, but it really did go quite well. I had my audio book playing on the computer as I worked (worked = played with Halloween candy and treat bags).
Finished the treats.
Finished the book.
Left over candy.
Now what? That wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be to make 50 treats. I hope everyone enjoys them.
