Family Movie Night in a Box and Reindeer Cocoa Cones

In need of some quick teacher or coworker gifts?  These Family Movie Night gift boxes and Reindeer Cocoa Cones made for some great teacher gifts this year.  I found the idea for the Reindeer Cocoa Cones on Pinterest.  See Mommy's Kitchen blog for directions on how to make these wonderful gifts up quickly.  For the Family Movie Night gift boxes, I used Stampin' Up!'s Extra Large Gift Boxes and the Festive Flurries Snowflake Ornament Kit to decorate the Kraft boxes.  I used the gift boxes so the teachers could reuse them for wrapping up their own holiday gifts to give or to reuse the Snowflake Ornament as a package topper or an ornament on their tree.  Inside the gift boxes, I included 3 bags of Movie Theater Butter Popcorn, some movie candy, Reindeer Cocoa Cones in Milk Chocolate and in Dark Chocolate (not knowing the teacher's family preferences), and a Redbox gift card.  Since these preschool teachers give so much of their time and energy every day, I wanted them to enjoy a special night with their own families.  The teachers loved their gifts and look forward to a relaxing night with their families to enjoy all the goodies in the Family Movie Night boxes.

For the director, assistant director and music teacher of the preschool, I made a box of all occasion cards, Reindeer Cocoa Cones, and gave them a gift card to Starbucks or Target.  I packaged the gift cards using Stampin' Up!'s Muslin Bags and used a template to sponge the designs onto the bags using Stampin' Up! ink and sponge daubers, plus I added some bling with the Rhinestone Jewels and some ribbon at the end of the muslin bags.  To make the template I used to sponge onto the muslin bags, I used a scrap piece of card stock and cut out snowflakes using the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies or punched out an ornament shape using the Mosaic Punch.  Just another quick and easy way to dress up your gift and a great way for the recipient to be able to reuse for their own holiday gifts.  A two for one gift!

To add a quick gift tag, I helped my daughter stamp a reindeer or tree and the "to and from" from the retired No Peeking stamp set and "have a holly jolly christmas" message from the retired Christmas Punch stamp set.  My kids always make a holiday treat bag for their classmates so my daughter attached these adorable gift tags to her treat bags.
