Pootles SpringWatch 2017 Party Animal Polo Customer Treats

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles SpringWatch 2017 Party Animal Polo Customer Treats

SpringWatch Giveaway for today – Party Animal Designer Series Paper – details on how to enter at the bottom

How cute are these little treat pouches??? I love to make and send gifts to everyone who comes shopping with me, and I get endless pleasure making them.

I always send a goodie pack to all my lovely customers, no matter what size the order is. There’s always a gift and a card (more about that tomorrow!) and if you use the hostess code, you get a 2nd parcel of goodies too!

But who knew you could buy individually wrapped glacier polo mints?  For my overseas friends, these are boiled sweets with a hole in them. Think jolly rancher candy sweets. Normally we buy them in tubes and they’re a hard sugared sweet rather than a boiled one. But they’re perfect for a little mini treat. Perhaps suck one while you’re perusing the catalogue, then suck the other while making your wishlist???

I love using my Envelope Punch Board to make my little treat pouches. When you’ve got in excess of 200 to make, this is a quick tool to use which leaves me time to make them pretty!

Have a super day everyone, we’re into week 2 of SpringWatch and I’m loving hearing all your comments!

    I love all ur little treat pouches/boxes/bag, they are all so cute but so needed for little extras and thank you gifts. These are ideal for craft fairs, pop one in the bag after they bought something or just free little gifts in a basket for people to pick up.
    Keep up the good work hun.
