Sanitizing Christmas Treat!

Before we get to the project today. I had to show some Halloween pictures of Logan and Megan. Today Logan and Dan are at the Zoo Boo. Logan LOVES the Zoo Boo. It's basically trick or treating at each of the animals habitat. It's very fun. Each animal is sponsored by a different company or group and they hand out the candy and also some fun coupons or other treats. Last year (or the year before) Logan got a football from the State Farm people. McDonald's always has coupons and the tiger exhibit is always sponsored by a local dentist so we get free toothbrushes. So it's a pretty successful morning of trick or treating. And Logan has a ton of fun. This year Logan wanted to be a knight. So my Mom made his knight costume out of a pillow case. She cut a hole for the head and arms and sewed a cross on the front. It turned out really cute.

We found the shield and sword at a hobby store here and the crown Logan and I made with our Brushed Gold Cardstock and Chunky Glitter.
Isn't he cute?
Megan also dressed for the occasion even though we're not going to the Zoo Boo this year.

This is her little pumpkin outfit. Super cute! Tomorrow she has a shirt with a bat on it that says "I'm batty for Daddy" That one is super cute too!
Ok well here's the project for today. We had our demonstrator meeting on Thursday and I of course forgot my camera. So unfortunately I don't have swaps to show you or the other 3 minute demos to show. But I have my 3 minute demo to show you! I saw these on Kimberly Van Diepen's blog. She's amazing too. She has a video on how to put them together so make sure you check that out. I'll post the measurements but check out the video anyway.

These would make the cutest co worker gifts or stocking stuffers.

Inside the box is a small hand sanitizer!!
Isn't that just awesome!! I LOVE it!!! I'm going to make a gazillion of these and give them out this flu season.
They're super simple to make. Here's the dimensions and remember to check out the video to figure out how to put them together.
2x11 piece of cardstock.
Score at .5, 1.5, 3.5, 4.5, 7.5 and 8.5
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!
