I think I might have one or two more vacation posts to get caught up for our blog book, but I wanted to squeeze this September visiting teaching post in before the month gets away from me. And man, is it a cute one.
Our family is a little obsessed with s'mores. We love them. A lot. And I've always wanted to do something "s'moreish" for visiting teaching gifts for September when a roaring fire in a backyard pit sounds really nice. But I try and keep the cost down and handing someone a box of graham crackers and a bag of marshmallows isn't exactly, well, cute. So when I found this post over at Twig & Thistle, I knew the time of the s'more visiting teaching gift had arrived!!
I found the darling little acetate boxes at PaperMart and I just went ahead and ordered them in packages because I already have visions of Christmas neighbor gifts (think homemade truffles in fluted papers in clear, tuck top boxes tied in red baker's twine. I get giddy just talking about it). And let's just have a little chat about baker's twine. You know, the super cute twine that comes in awesome colors and you can buy on most crafting sites for about $5 for 20 yards? Well, check this out. I have no idea how I'm going to go through 3400 yards of the stuff, but for $9.00, I'll give it a valiant effort.
