Save those Crystal Light Containers!!!!!!!

Wow!  It feels like it has been forever since I have posted on my blog.  Between work, shopping, wrapping, and decorating I feel like I haven't had much time creating in the dungeon.  I have a new project that I am excited to share with you.   A new video will be posted soon (I was having technical difficulties) so I decided to post the photos.  I hope you enjoy this cute, simple and great crafty project! I used Crystal Light drink mix containers.

Materials used:
Gingerbread Cricut Cartridge (stocking cut at 2 1/2 inches)
A Crystal Light container
Martha Stewart punch
DCWV The Christmas Stack
Ribbon from Michaels
Icicle Stickles for the top of the stocking




  I am making several of them for my parent volunteers and co-workers.  I think next year I will make one for each of my students.  I think students would like to find a bookmark, a few pencils, and some candy inside of them!!  They are also the perfect size to fit any gift card.  I think I am going to fill mine with fudge, and candy!!  More to come later...Have a wonderful week :)
