I work in a Long Term Care Facility. It is often difficult to have a positive attitude when you are dealing with multiple people with dementia and just plain cranky folk! The Nurses Aides, Nurses, Housekeepers, Laundry and Kitchen all deserve something to brighten their day. So…I usually hand out little handmade stamped favors, treat boxes, etc. on every occasion. This year I decided to do little favors to hand out at the beginning of November. They’ll get theirs next week during Inservices.
As I began to make them I realized that I was short of Delightful Dijon Ribbon so I looked through my stash and came up with a while roll of “More Mustard” ribbon that is now retired. I hope you will forgive me. It took the whole roll and I made thirty of these little treat holders.
The outside is made with Cajun Craze Card Stock cut just a bit wider and 1 1/2″ longer than my little baggy insert. I found these inserts at Walmart in the Craft-Beads department. They just hold a small handful of Candy Corn and small handful of Fall colored M & M’s. Just something to say I care.
The little ScareCrow is stamped in Stazon Black Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and colored in using STampin’ Up! Markers in Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Ink. Then punched out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. The leaf is created by stamping the sentiment from Grateful Bunch Stamp Set in Cajun Craze on Delightful Dijon and then die cutting using the small die from Leaflet Framelits Set.
The Scarecrow and the leaf are adhered to the front of the favor container using Glue Dots. Hope you like it! Product List
