From JoAnn's, I picked up a roll of fleece from the remnants bin (there are a ton of super cute fleece prints and solids this time of year), embrodery thread found by the needlepoint section, some needles that could handle the thick embroidery thred, and some cute white favor bags from the wedding section to carry them in. In all my bill was about $10. I also used white rice and a funnel from our pantry, a heart cookie cutter for the shape, and a fabric pen for tracing.
Once they were filled with rice, I finished stitching, tied it off with a knot, then tied a cute bow with the two thread ends.
And since I am addicted to chalkboard word creations (just check out my Printables page, lol!) I made a cute little poem and gift tag to tie onto the wedding favor bags. They are 4X6 and can just be printed onto index cards. I printed mine on the front and back, cutting them apart to get two tags per index card. Click below to get the free printable file!
She is taking in her little gifts tomorrow... I hope her teachers enjoy them!
What is your favorite handmade gift? I'd love to hear and see about your creations this year!
