Happy New Year, Mrs. Carson's Class

Happy New Year's Eve!

Hope everyone is enjoying their day. Between the year coming to an end and Winter Break being almost over...I am thinking where has the time gone! I decided to make a surprise for my students when they return to school on Tuesday. It will be a great way to ring in the second semester...18 more weeks of school then they will be middle schoolers.

I kept the treat bags simple because my students will have these opened and devoured in less than 2 minutes. Some of my girls will save the package, but many of the boys will have the topper in the trash by the end of the day. Of course, I will have to give them the spiel about how long it took to create and how much it would mean if they took it home to show their parents. I will be sure to add a picture to our class webpage too just in case.

I used the blissful bell from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and knew I wanted it to be gold and silver when I was planning. Then I found this ribbon at Walmart for 50 cents a roll.  I also bought the Hershey Kisses the day after Christmas for 50% off and only used the silver wrappers. Perfect...I could tie all the colors together now!

The sentiment is computer generated (I need to get some New Year stamps. I think I saw Jaded Blossom might actually have a set.), and the scallop circle was cut on my Cameo. The topper is a black square folded in half with a rectangle piece of DCWV pattern paper. I rounded the corners with a Hobby Lobby punch.

I hope my class enjoys the start of 2016!

Be safe and have fun if you go to any New Year celebrations.
