Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Entry #2

Still playing with my new Paper Smooches stamps... I am loving the photo inspiration for the SPARKS challenge this time around. Having all boys in my house (2 little ones and 1 big one), I don't get many opportunities to craft in PINK, which happens to be my favorite color. I am taking advantage of this challenge, and also trying to get a jump on holiday goodies and packaging.

This year, I am planning to make coffee/tea/hot chocolate gifts for the boys' teachers and I was THRILLED to see the addition of a hot beverage set to the Paper Smooches lineup. Hot Concoctions, will be available on October 1st, but I have my set a bit early because I am a member of the Paper Smooches Club.

Sometimes, the simpliest and most inexpensive gifts can look like a million bucks with a little bit of fun wrapping. I found a kraft gift bag at Target for $.50, and added a tag, some bakers twine and some fun fibers. So cute, isn't it?

And a closeup... I used my new Damask Snowflakes dies from Papertrey Ink. LOVE them! The Tag Sale #1 die is also from PTI.

The little bitty tea bag is also paper of the Paper Smooches stamp set. I stamped it, cut it out, added some tea dye ink and attatched it with some twine. So cute!
