merry christmas to my coworkers!
You are seeing one of about 65 of these I have made ..only need about 20 more and I'll be done!! But my coworkers seem to be enjoying them a lot as my Christmas card so I am glad to do the labor.
The task would have been easier if York hadn't gone to mylar packaging instead of the old wrap around papers of yesteryear. It takes a bit of scrunching to get the peppermint patty in the cup - and I even had to pierce a small hole in some of the packages that seem particularly fat from excess air in the pouch. But, from the reactions I am getting, I don't think folks are waiting very long to eat their treat so I don't think the mini hole will cause them to go stale too quickly! The base brilliant blue card is a non-SU die from sizzix - those of you who know me know I have LOTS of sizzix dies from way before SU began to carry them. I love my sizzix and I use it often and well.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. I expect to be posting throughout the holidays so when you get a free minute stop in to see what I'm up to!! Joy and blessings on all.
