TE Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge - October

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the October Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is an opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

The theme for October is:

Good things come in small packages! The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors. Please show us something you'll be giving this year.

I decided to make some treats for Sabrina's teachers and paras. I made a batch of snickerdoodle blondies and packaged them up in Mini Kraft Bakery Bags. I made a tag to add to each bag using Cuppie in the Kitchen. I used Label Stacklets 1 to create my layered tag, some patterned paper from the Art Angel collection (Cosmo Cricket). The sentiments are from Many Minis - Holidays, stamped onto a Fly Your Flag 2 die cut. I stamped, colored, pieced and cut out my images, then I added them to the tags with foam tape. Here are a couple different versions of the tags that I made:

And, in case you're interested, here is a closer look at the snickerdoodle blondies. These turned out so moist and yummy - I'll be adding them to my permanent recipe file! I used this recipe by the Brown Eyed Baker.

These are the Taylored Expressions stamps and dies that I used today:
