Goodie Bags for your favorite mom's

The older I get, the more I realize just how important and varying friendships are. I have always loved the saying of “a reason, a season and a lifetime”, but I haven’t really noticed the differences until lately. I have friends that I talk to just now and then, but they mean just as much to me each time. I have ladies I rarely see except for press events but I love getting together with them each time. And I have the friends that I love dearly, and that mean more to me than they probably know.

I wanted to let my friends know I care about them, and I truly appreciate all they do for me, so for my kids’ recent back-to-school party, I made some of my mom friends their own goodie-bag. It was fun, cute, and simple. And very easy to do!

MATERIALS:

  • Wine Glass (I actually used my silhouette machine to etch the glass with “Mommy’s turn to whine”. You can get a regular or cute wine glass, or you can use stencils and etching cream that can be found at Hobby Stores. Follow the directions carefully if you choose this option.
  • Spoon-plastic or regular
  • Melting Chocolate
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cellophane or candy bags
  • Ribbon
  • HoneySticks (great place to find tons of flavor is Natural Food Stores like Sprouts)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Follow the directions on the package to melt the chocolate.
  2. Stir in a dash of Vanilla Extract.
  3. Dip the Spoons in the chocolate
  4. Put in freezer to solidify
  5. Extras: you can also melt white chocolate and drizzle in or dip the tip of the spoon in, or get add little bits of mint.
  6. Wrap the solidified spoon in the candy bag or cellophane and wrap with ribbon.
  7. Make a cute, small card. Mine said “Coffee, tea or wine..make sure you get in your me time!”
  8. Put a small hole in the corner of the card
  9. Put the honeystick on the top of the spoon and wrap together with ribbon, attaching the card on the ribbon before you tie it.
  10. Put in the wine glass and give as a gift!


Have your say
