Girl Scout thank you gifts

This year, for the first time, I was in charge of the Cookie Cupboard and the Cookie booths for my area (16 troops, about 200 girls). I approached a few business' about allowing the Scouts to sell cookies out front. After working out schedules, I was pleased to have spoken with these companies. I decided that THIS year, as I am not sure if it was done in the past, we should do thank you gifts to show our appreciation. So I bought some square vases from Walmart, used some vinyl bought from signwarehouse.com, my Cricut Expression, and Sure Cuts A Lot program on my computer. I am going to have each troop write a thank you note with their troop number on a post it sized paper and it and put it inside. What do ya think?

Okay, I checked the date on my last entry and it was Jan 16th.. sigh... so much for a post a week! Girl Scout cookie season is kicking my but! LOL! But I did make some Valentines for my daughters class. I used paper from a paper pack that I have had for a LONG time! I cut the paper in 4 x 6 strips and used a Fiskars punch for the "scalloped" edge. I cut the hearts at 2 inches on my Cricut with the George cartridge, selecting the slotted feature. I used Studio 8 glitter glue and filled in the slots for eyes and then made a smiley! Hope my daughters 2nd grade likes them! (and I hope you like them too!)
