Father's Day Treats

At church I work with the children's organization, and I usually try to have some sort of little treat/gift for the teachers on major holidays just to remind the teachers and staff that we appreciate them and all their hard work.  So, these are the Father's Day gifts I made up for this year to appreciate all the men who teach classes or work with the Cub Scouts.   
I used some Designer Paper that was in my stash--I believe it was from the Summer Mini last year--and just wrapped the mini candy bars.  I used a tiny bit of Snail adhesive between the bars to help hold the stack together while I tied on the ribbon and tag.  

The tags use the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  I stamped and then punched out using the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch

I quite enjoyed making up these little treats since they were very quick and simple.  Just by altering the Designer Paper that you use, I think these would be great for party favors too (birthday, baby shower, etc).  

Have a great Father's Day weekend!  

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Night of Navy, Bashful Blue

Hi Allison!

Just wanted you to know that I took your idea here and made some of these for the men at my church yesterday. I couldn't find the smaller size bars, so used a regular size. Mine didn't come out near as neat and pretty as yours did, however, it is the gesture that counts, right? Maybe next year I can add the ribbon and tag to mine but this year just stamped right on top of the dsp. At least the men didn't read your blog and see your beautiful inspiration to compare mine with! LOL. I really appreciate the inspiration so much! Such a neat idea. I'm thinking next year I might even wrap mircowave popcorn packs to change it up. : )
