Hello Kitty Girl's Day Treats...

Hello friends!! i can't tell you how much i'm enjoying reading about your favorite birthday treats... they all sound soooooo YUMMY!!! Thank you to those who have already entered... there's still time and i have a direct link above my postings... so if you haven't already, go and check it out!

tomorrow is Girl's Day and it's sorta big in Hawaii... especially for those of Japanese ancestry... yes, i'm one of them... every March 3, we celebrate Girl's Day which is marked as children's day... in May, we will celebrate Boy's Day... i try to make little treats for most of the holidays we celebrate for DD#1's classmates... so being the last minute person i am these days, i put these little treats together....
a simple creation that took me 2 days to finish... extra special with these since the DH helped a lot... his task, to punch 40 sakura flowers and 20 HK bows... such a BIG help for me... and i'm ever so thankful that he decided to help...
here's a pix of all 20.... just something small for the kiddies... i cut strips of CS... 2.5 x 8... scored lines at 3.5 and 4.5 (long ways) and folded to make a bottom... i then used my sakura stamp and stamped the image all over the card stock... used a 2 in. circle punch to cut out a window... found some yummy fruit flavored hard candy and added 3 each to a small baggie... why 3??? because it's the 3rd month and 3rd day that we celebrate the girls... so 3 was a nice touch... LOL... then i stapled the 2 ends together making sure the little baggie was in between... then to cover up the staple, i used one of my HK sizzlits (just the head part) that i decorated with different colored CS for her bow, 2 different colored sakuras and a dab of yellow glitter glue.... and a label on the back to cover up the other side of the staple...
and this is a close up of this sweet treat... i hope the kiddies like it...
Thanks for baring with me through my absences... i'm slowly getting back in to craft mode, which is helping me to relax a bit... and by the way these were done, it's coming... haha! i'm already in gear to attack Easter treats for her class, which i have all the supplies for just haven't had the time to start working on them... the thought of having to heat up the glue gun got me procastinating... LOL... haven't used it in a while, i'm not sure i remember how... LOL...
Hope all is well with you all!!! join me tomorrow for some DT fun... See yah soon!!!

  9. Wow Kris!

    Those are awesome! The kids will luv these but I think the mother's of the kids will luv it more! They probably won't want the kids to take it a part! :) Have a great day!

  10. Kris you are an A+ MOM. The Girls' Day treats are fabulous! I fondly remember making class treats for my boys to pass out. Even though they are a lot of work your girls will be proud to be giving. It's a good feeling to share and will continue to shape your daughters into good and caring adults like you and your husband. Hurray for good parents!

  11. Very cute! I think I'm going to start dreaming of HK cause after finishing 90+ invites and then I still need to make 250+ favors... yikes! Good thing she's a cutie!

  12. Kris these are terrific! Your kids are so lucky to have a Mom that puts so much effort into giving their class such wonderful goodies. You are so sweet. I love how you made these..Happy Girls Day to you. Hugs, Lisa
