I will probably fill the carton with Runts or something fruity :) And did you notice the little tiny apple in the corner of the card? That is from a retired set called One Smart Cookie and it is perfect match to the apple in Tart & Tangy, so if you have this set, pull it out and refresh your memory! The Scallop Oval on the card has a couple of flat sides. That's what happens when your scrap isn't wide enough, but I think it looks good this way too :)
This is the Pear Pizazz version. I just love these colors! It sure didn't take me long to warm up to the new colors this year.
And the tea lights. Here is a link to the tutorial for those again. So do you think I should give these to the male teachers? Somehow I think they would like something else better, lol!
Pear Pizazz Version of the tea lights. Which color do you like better?
And the gift bags made out of brown paper lunch bags. I like the shorter version better. And the Twine Rope is currently available on the Clearance Rack for $2.99 for a 15 yd roll! I just happen to have a roll in my stash :) I dipped the ends in melted candle wax (from a tea light candle on my desk) to prevent the twine from unraveling while trying to thread it through the holes in the top of the bag.
Thanks for looking and Happy Stampin!
ETA: OMgosh! I can't believe I forgot to add the recipe! And yes, it is safe to burn these candles, there is no flare in the flame from the tissue paper.
