Administrative Assistants Day

This little packet was delivered to 19 of my fellow secretaries and clerks in our school district. I couldn't send real chocolate dipped strawberries through the interoffice mail so I picked up these cute boxes of strawberry gum and added some Hershey Kisses - an improvisation I hope they'll enjoy.
The picture is a little blurry (finished them after midnight last night). This uses SU's Lots of Thoughts and Full of Life stamp sets. I'm thinking this would be good for Staff Appreciation Day also. The paper used for the clips and topper is Real Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, and WW. And the back of the clip has the flower cut from one of the Summer Picnic DSP sheets. You can see the clip better in a post below.

The Strawberry on the clip was stamped using Tart and Tangy and I just used Choc. Chip marker and then crystal effects to make it look like it was dipped in chocolate.

EDITED 4/23 2:00 PM: Don't put candy in the same bag with anything that you have used E6000 on that hasn't cured for several days. The candy picks up the smell and taste of the glue!!!


  1. It was a wonderful thing to come in that day and find this on my desk at work. You have come up with such great ideas. Thank you for giving and sharing. Debbie J

  2. Thanks Debbie - you know I know how hard we all work to keep things together. I'm glad to be able to share when I can.
