Teachers gifts using Snowflake Soiree

When it comes to teachers gifts I like to keep the cost down, but I still like to give them something nice. That's why homemade gifts can be good, if you have the time and ideas.
I seen christmas bark (or peppermint bark if you like)  on pinterest and thought what a great idea, I can do that, I'll just have to make it look pretty, then I'll have some nice little teachers gifts. 
The Christmas Bark is just a layer of dark chocolate with a layer of white on top with crushed candy canes...mmm. Break up the Christmas Bark, put it into a cello bag with some nice ribbon & a pretty tag.

Remember to use good quality eating chocolate so that it will taste delicious. Cooking chocolate is more of a compound chocolate, and doesn't have the same eating quality.

I made each of the tags to match the cards. The tags are all punched with the small & large Tag punches, stamped with snowflakes from Snowflake Soiree and "Very Merry"from Short & Sweet.

Colours- Crumb Cake, Night of Navy & Very Vanilla.

Colours- Midnight Muse, Marina Mist & Whisper White.
The snowflakes are stamped with Versa Mark & embossed with Clear embossing powder.

Colours- Raspberry Ripple, Baja Breeze, Whisper White.
You can't tell in the photo, but this card has been spritzed with White Frost Shimmer Paint.
The "Merry Christmas" is from the Sassy Salutations stamp set.

Colours- Gumball Green & Whisper White. 

 The snowflakes have been stamped with Versa Mark & embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

 The rest were not part of the teachers gifts, but just the samples I've made with the Snowflake Soiree stamp set. I love it & wish I had gotten it sooner.
