Even the Naughty deserve something nice....

As I've talked about before, we moved into a new neighborhood last summer. Our kids are in hog heaven! There are 18 kids on our street, and only 1/2 the lots are occupied! So, needless to say, we are Kid Central! So, when i saw this post on Pinterest for Candy Cane Playdough, I thought what a great gift this would make for all our neighbors!

 I did these two last weekend as a trial run. I need a litl eplaydough making practice. Or maybe just playdough twisting practice. What I really need to do is buy a jar with a larger mouth! This is why we do trial runs, right? Anyway, I chose a very appropriate tag...
 If you live around LOTS of kids, you know what I'm talking about! It's great to have so many friends, but we are forever putting out fires! OK, figuratively.. LOL! :-)

I tied the tag and cookie cutter on with White Twine and Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. The fabric is Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric. Tag was made using the Tags till Christmas Stamp Set, Real Red ink, Red Glitter Paper, Wild Wasabi CS. I punched two large tag punches and layered them so it was one wider tag base. I also used the 1 1/4" square punch and the Scalloped Square punch. I also sprinked Dazzling Diamonds into the dough!!

Hope my neighboor friends enjoy this fun (and CHEAP!!) gift!
