Challenge- Back to School #76, PK Back to School & Creative Inspirations

I am entering this project into three challenges:

  • Fantabulous Cricut- Back to School #76
  • Peachy Keen- Back to School
  • Creative Inspirations- Back to School

I wanted to make a little treat bag for my kids school teachers, so I decided to try a new kind of bag.

FC challenged me to use some ABC letter or 123 numbers. I chose to run with my M&M letters to match my candy inside and used the letter M...and I guess the word "Sweetness" that I stamped counts too, since we are talking about letters and words here.

PK challenged me to incorporate Peachy Keen face stamps, which I love. I chose to use a Winter Face and stamp it next to the hand written note I made on the inside flap that the teacher will see when she opens the package.

I used Plantin to cut out the circles and the letter m. The stamp sentiment is from MPS, Sweetest Cupcakes. The ribbon is from Michaels. The edge punch is a Martha Stewart punch (sorry I forgot to write the name on the punch, so I have no idea what its called now). The bag I used in the inside is from the jewelry department in Michaels and is size Medium in a blue and black box. The mini M&M can be found in your grocery store.
I love how it turned out!
