Thanks, Teacher!

   Friday was the last day of summer school for my girls.  I always want to let the teacher and the teacher assistants how much I appreciate them.  Chocolate always seems to come to mind...

  There are two males and two females, so I made the stripes for the guys and the florals for the ladies.  I am entering my wrapped Hershey bars at Craftin' Desert Divas "Back to School" challenge.  My Hershey bars were for the end of summer school, so if this disqualifies my project, I totally understand!
  It also gave me a good excuse to use these label stickers that I won from SRM last Spring.  I added the rub-on sentiment (American Crafts).  The red, yellow, and floral card stock came from the June 2013 Artful Delight kit.  I used "lemon drop" Twinery twine to attach the tags to the Echo Park "School Days" blue paper.

paper:  My Mind's Eye "Collectable" (floral); Bazzill card stock; Echo Park "School Days"
sentiment:  American Crafts rub-on
label stickers:  SRM Bright Blank Labels by the Dozen
twine:  The Twinery "Lemon Drop"
tag die:  PTI

  It is so rewarding to create from various manufacturers and combine new stash with old.

Happy Monday!

I agree with you, chocolate is always a good gift. I like the way you decorated/packaged the candy bars, both the male and female versions.
