Last weekend’s retreat was so much fun! We all had a great time. Throughout the weekend I had little surprises for everyone. If you go to a Stampin’ Up! incentive event you get what they call “pillow gifts”. These are gifts that Stampin’ Up! leaves usually on your bed/pillow in the hotel room during the event. I wanted to do the same thing during the retreat but not everyone had a pillow here – some people went home every night. So the “pillow” gifts were left on everyone’s crafting spot. I tried to sneak down and leave the little surprises when no one was around.
This was the one from Friday night –
Friday night we planned to have a fire in the fire pit so I thought the perfect surprise would be Smore’s related and I saw this idea on Pinterest some time ago and always wanted to make something like this.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Gusseted Cello bags that were in last years Holiday catalog and then on the clearance rack – not sure if they are still there or not. Inside the bag I have this – listed from bottom to the top
- bottom layer – graham crackers – 4 squares
- chocolate – 1/2 standard size bar
- Jumbo pumpkin shaped marshmallow – it is on its side
- yogurt covered pretzels – 5
- regular marshmallow – I used an edible marker to draw the face
I tied the bag shut with some Pumpkin Pie Taffeta ribbon (it was in my retired stash).
I also added a Skeleton twist tie – made with the Witches Brew Washi Tape – I just covered an existing white twist tie with the Washi Tape (I’ve also covered floral wire to make twist ties – see this post).
Breaking news!!! THANK YOU THURSDAY special from Stampin’ Up! – today Thursday Oct, 3, 2013 only – Washi Tape is on sale – order in my online store.
To finish the treat I made a little tag using the Halloween Bash stamp set. I stamped “eat if you dare” in Black ink and cut wit the label framelit. I used a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker to color the white edge outside the image.
Each bag had enough to make two smore’s.
