Snowman Poop and Starbucks

I made snowman poop for the kids in Cody's class this year. I just put the contents into treat bags, added the topper, and write the names on the back. I stamped snowflakes from Verve Visual's Winter Wonder set with Brilliance Moonlight White ink onto a kelly green cardstock. I printed the poem onto copy paper and adhered to the front before stapling the topper to the cocoa and marshmallows. I was going to add some Christmas themed stickers, but I don't know what happened to them....I believe the boy got them.

I purchased the 4-pack Frappaccino coffees for the bus driver. I just covered part of the carrying case with Bazzill cardstock and PP. I punched a scallop circle and 1.5" and 1 3/8" circles to put on the lids, and then added the curling ribbon around the neck of each bottle.

I used my new Festive Labels set from Gina K for the sentiment on the front. It was cut out and mounted onto a scallop rectangle using Nestabilities. I also used scallop circles and sentiments to cover the seams on either side. Just have to pick up the Pepperidge Farms cookies and give it away.

I still haven't started the calendar for Cody's teacher. With a week to go, I should have time. She is so sweet, and I am thrilled that she communicates so often with us. Last year, I was so frustrated at the lack of communication with his teacher; I just felt like if I didn't ask, she didn't divulge. So, maybe this year I knew what to expect and his teacher is pretty new; she has only been teaching for two years. I have been doing my best to let her know how much I appreciate being involved and informed.
