Teacher mini-treat

So my youngest had extended school year to help him with his delays.  His teacher is fabulous and took the kids on several outings because they were lucky to be a very small group.  I wanted to give her and the helpers a little treat so I found these really cute treat totes on Becky's Inking Idaho blog.  She has a link to Dawn's DO stamping blog where there is a fantastic video with directions. 
I made these from Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.  The totes are inked the same colors with an Artful Inkables swirl stamp that is part of the Fictionally Yours set.  I didn't have the small oval so I used the word window punch for the handle.  I then used some spare kraft to stamp the chocolate (from SU's retired Eat Chocolate) in Crumb Cake then punched with the decorative label punch.  I also stamped the Thank You from the 25th Anniversary Favorite Sentiments set in the matching ink, then punching with the word window punch and adding it to the label.  I used the smallest punch from the crop-a-dile and used jute twine to wrap around the handles and tie off with the label.  Each tote holds four squares of chocolate. 
Be sure to visit Becky and Dawn's blogs to see what they did with the totes and thanks for looking!  April
