Teacher Appreciation Gifts My Pink Stamper Monthly Post

Hi Everyone! It's time for the monthly My Pink Stamper Design Team Post! This month our theme was Teacher Appreciate Gifts. I saw these Oreo cookies a while back and new that I wanted to make them. I found the idea on The Crafting Chicks.
To get the complete recipe and instructions on the cookies, please click on the link below: http://thecraftingchicks.com/2011/05/mini-oreo-apple-pops-teacher-appreciation-idea.html

There is one thing that I did, that I would like to add that helped me immensely when firming up the chocolate onto the Oreo. I found a basket and covered it with tinfoil to avoid the chocolate from dripping on the basket. I used toothpicks to inset into the Oreo before I dipped them. To dry them I simply placed them onto the upside down basket and it worked like a charm! :0)
In the picture below you will see that I used a clear cellophane bag around the cookie pops and then tied it off with some bakers twine and a gift tag. The tag was cut from Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge and the sentiment is from School Days. What I love about the stamp set is that it can be used for more then just teachers. For instance, since my children are out of high school I made the treats for them and the sentiment fit perfectly! :0)
For the card, I brought out an oldie but goodie Cricut Cartridge, the Wild Card. What I love about this cartridge is that it has so many holiday and fun things wrapped up into one. I think the sentiment Wise Guy from My Pink Stamper's School Days is just perfect for this little graduate. :0)
For details and measurements please see the video below: If you came to this website first, please be sure and head on over to My Pink Stamper's website to see all the incredible ideas make by the fabulous design team!! :0)
