Sock Hop and more...

A local Girl Scout Daisy group is having a SOCK HOP, and the assistant leader wanted some favors for the girls. I couldn't contain my excitement when I realized I had the Sizzix Stocking (Big Shot), arriving a few days after the request. 

  I only then had to figure out how to make it like a favor, meaning 3D... meaning I really needed to look at this in another direction.   I had seen a few really cool things done with this die, but I wanted something simple since I could be making 25 of these. 

Using the Sizzix Box#2 gave me  just the little bit of wiggle room I neede for some treat of a sort! I was able to put in two Twix fun size bars and a PB cup.  I am not sure what the leader has in mind, but I thought it was a good starting point. 

Then I got to thinking.... I have a group that exchanges handcrafted Christmas gifts that we decide on a theme every year... and though we haven't decided on a theme, I could use this as a nice addition to the gifts.

 Since the box is big enough for a gift card, its more fun than just an envelope ...
RIGHT?   I just little bells around the bow for fun!

So why did I use the Lucky Limeade as my sock hop color sample? ... because I was hoping the fact that it was LUCKY, would help close the sale!

Have a great day!

Hug the ones you love!

Thanks for stopping by!
