Last year in July I made a post about a crafting retreat that I try to go on every summer. Read more about that here. While you are at that post, read about the love notes I leave for my family while I am gone and in general about my love for making what I call “treat notes”.
In this post I would love to share with you the 4 treat notes I made for all my sweet friends who were at the retreat with me. At a certain time during each day of the retreat I would come out of my room with a basket carrying notes – one for each person with their names on it and everything!! It was a little way for me to share how glad I was to be there with them and share their friendship!! I just wanted to make beautiful things for them to remind them daily that I care about them!!
Day 1 – Diecut purse out of strawberry design patterned paper and put inside it – YUMMY Godiva Strawberry Cheesecake truffles. (Chocolate is always a good idea, right?!?)
Day 2 – A Brightly colored and decorated sour cream pouch filled with a baggie of skittles!! Read more about the sour cream pouch here.
Day 3 – Flat brown bag “cute”d up with a doily and a paper bow diecut! I discovered two Ghirardelli squares fit perfectly inside! So, of course that is what I added to the cute bags!!
Day 4 – Cherry Laffy Taffy’s with a cute stamped tag to match.
Here is another view of the back of the tag –
I am very pleased to say that my friends really appreciated the effort I put into sharing a little beauty with them. We are having our next retreat at the end of July so I am working my brain, trying to come up with new, cute ideas for this year! New ideas for my family’s treat notes and for my friends at the retreat!! I will be sure to post them, but not until after the fact, since I think they should see them first. I don’t want to spoil their surprise!!
Maybe you could whip up a “treat” note for someone who needs some beauty in their life!!
Thanks so much for stopping by – please leave a note letting me know you were here!!
