Co-worker candy and candy alternative

Happy Halloween! Last night I made some treats for my co-workers that I handed out this morning. Most of my co-workers got a 2-pack of Reese's treats wrapped in Stampin' Up designer paper (4"x6" was a perfect size to cover each). I wrapped them in some of the now retired copper cording and tied on a tag with a Booglie Eyes character or saying on it. Other than the tags that had marker-colored characters, this was a quick project and I got a lot of happy reactions to them! I wrote on the back of the tag that they were from me.

Then, for my department co-worker who is a die-hard chocolate lover, I gave her

cheddar cheese! These were individually wrapped cheese packages that were at Target (why doesn't the cheese sound good when I add in the Target part??). Anyway, in spite of her affinity for chocolate, she is on a low-carb diet, and I didn't want to thwart her plans. I do know though that she loves cheese, and knew she'd understand how happy I was that the cheese's orange color fit in with the theme. These packages were each stamped with Autumn Apparitions characters, popped in the refrigerator until they dried, and then tucked in a cellophane bag that I topped with more designer paper and some eyelets and ribbon. This package was extremely well received. :) Makes it always fun to give things to her!

I hope you and all your friendly ghosts and goblins are having a hauntingly good day! Thanks for stopping by.
