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.
