Simple Gifts

These are 2 of the simple gifts I put together this year for some of the teachers at my kids' schools. Now that Parker is in middle school he has several teachers and Jenna has a music teacher, library teacher, gym teacher, and a teacher assistant that works in her classroom. These are great as little thank you's and also work well as hostess gifts. The Deer Friends ones are chocolate covered peppermint patties. The candles are so simple to make. Stamp a snowflake image on tissue paper, cut it out and punch a small hole in the middle. Place the image on the candle with the wick thru the hole. Use your heat tool to melt the image into the wax and when it's still liquid sprinkle some dazzling diamonds on top. I have tested these candles and you can burn them, but as always, do not leave burning candles unattended! Both are packaged in SU cello bags and I used the top note die for the bag toppers.
