DeNami FANCY FAVORS April Blog Hop


Welcome to the April DeNami Blog Hop - FANCY FAVORS.
I must admit, I have zero "fun" food or chocolate in my house, so I had to compromise and I used fruit leather and a gift card.  They could easily be used for some yummy chocolate or other sinful treat!

 The 1st week of May is teacher appreciation week.  I always try to give the teachers a little something each day of the week to show our appreciation.  
I stamped For You in Red Ink and punched out with a scalloped circle punch.  I added the apple stamped in black in the center. Colored in with copics and put crystal lacquer on the top to make them look like shiny apples.
The bag on the left is holding 4 fruit leathers and is the 3 x 8 1/2 sized bag from DeNami.   I tied it at the top using 3/8 lime ribbon and tied the apple circle on using twine.
The one on the right has an I-tunes gift card and measures 3 3/8 x 4 3/4.  I folded the bag down and closed it with  a strip of washi tape.  The For you circle is popped up using foam tape.
Simple, yet thoughtful.
The next stop on the hop is to visit Pam.  I'm sure she has something fabulous for you to see.  Make sure to leave her a comment and every other blog along the way- - you could win a DeNami gift certificate!

  1. I love teachers gifts. These are perfect! That shiny apple is so sweet. You're smart to not have junky goodies in your house, there's really not much good about them ;)

  5. Haha...I don't have chocolate around my house either...that's a good thing! LOL!! When it comes to treat making, I make sure to use ALL of the treats to give away so that I don't end up eating the leftovers. Love how your teacher's appreciation treats turned out. The use of the crystal lacquer on the apple is PERFECT!!
