Back 2 School Bake Sale

S'mores anyone? Kids are back to school and that means volunteering, bake sales and Open Houses. I wanted to make my contribution to the bake sale, but wanted something clever and different. This is what I came up with.

I made these little "S'mores To Go" packages. Inside each package is a Hershey chocolate bar, mini marshmallows and graham crackers. I also included a recipe for No Fire S'mores, thanks to Paula Dean and Food Network. com! All items are individually wrapped and swaddled in polka dot cellophane. Finally I tied it all together with some chocolate organdy ribbon and these darling tags I made using Lasting Impressions embossing templates and paper from Close To My Heart.

Here is the recipe to make the No Fire S'mores. It's very simple and would be such a nice treat for families to share together.

But, that's not all! I also made a dozen goodie bags filled with Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies. These were made with a 5x12 sheet of card stock with a hole cut out of the center front to showcase the yummy cookies inside. I stamped the apple and sentiment from the September Word Puzzle stamp and finished it with some twine. The school asked to have all baked goods packaged individually, so I think these qualify!
