Goodie Boxes!

Molly's middle school is hosting All County Chorus auditions on Tuesday. She really enjoys Chorus-- keep your fingers crossed that she makes it! I'll be there for a shift at the snack bar, and I volunteered to make goodie boxes for the judges. Why? Not quite sure!! The judges do receive a little bit of money for 6+ hours of work. I think I just needed another project. I forgot that October is Staff Appreciation Month at church, plus there are at least 10 Halloween card designs buzzing in my head, not to mention Christmas cards for Operation Quiet Comfort....what's that, honey? the house? Oh, yeah, I'll get to it when I can! LOL!!Anyway, I hope the Chorus teacher -- and judges-- like them!

Each box contains a post-it notebook made with the Bind It All. I LOVE that little gadget! I loaded up on post-it notes when Staples had such a fantastic deal many moons ago (2008?). I'm down to my last few chipboard coasters though. The fall-themed paper for this project came from a big box retailer, because I volunteered to do these only last week-- I didn't have time to order the wonderful Autumn paper in the mini. Recognize that shiny middle of the flower? That's right, a clear round button! Of course, a matching RSVP pen is in the box too!

Hershey's Bliss chocolates-- light and dark-- are in these sour cream containers. These are soooo easy to make-- I think all 6 took me maybe 10 minutes. I threw those chocolates in there lickety-split-- trying to stay on my diet!

Mitzi gave me these gable boxes a while back-- I've used some for other projects. I was thrilled to see I had 6 left for this! Inside the boxes, wrapped in tissue paper, are the post-it notebook, pen, sour cream container, mini bottle of hand sanitizer, packet of kleenex (it is flu season, after all!) and Tic Tacs.

have a great first full week of October!
