Fancy Favor Box Teacher Gifts

Whether you have a small gift for a teacher, co-worker, babysitter, neighbor, friend, or family memnber, the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die is a great size for all sorts of gift items.  To make teacher gifts to sell at craft fairs, I cut my Fancy Favor Boxes with an assortment of Designer Series Paper and filled them with hand sanitizers.  As a retired teacher myself, I know this is one gift I would have really like and used in my classroom. 
I cut my Designer Series Paper into a 6" x 12" piece and ran it through my Big Shot using the Fancy Favor Die.  The handle also is cut out with the die, so no extra paper needed. (You get two boxes cut with one 12 x 12 piece of DSP)  I attached my handle to the box using brads, and embellished my box with stamped and punched ornaments.  The hand sanitizer was placed into a 4"x 6" cellophane bag and tied with some retired Cherry Cobbler ribbon.
The following were used:
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Snow Festival #126908 (Holiday Mini Catalog)
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler #126966, Gumball Green #126861

What a clever idea! Hand sanitizer would be a great idea for any one in the public service :)
