These are for teacher gifts. Denise Wenzloff came up with the Jiffy Pop and popcorn bucket idea and this is what I did with it. The buckets were at Target but we seem to have cleaned them out here in my area. If anyone else has a source for these I'd love to know where to find more.
Anyway, the background stamps are from CTMH. One of their My Acrylix Word Puzzle stamps. I love these things...so cute! The popcorn is from Stamps by Judith. Another of my favorites. The background is stamped with chalk inks in various colors. The popcorn bucket was painted with Twinkling H2Os. The popcorn was watercolored with SU! inks. All papers and silver cord are SU! The red/white striped ribbon was at Michael's. I'm gonna add some other little goodies and then wrap the whole thing in celophane and add a tag.

Very cute! I saw these at Target at the Dollar Spot and got 10 of them! I'm going to make teacher gifts out of them - microwave popcorn, Blockbuster gift card, 2 candy bars, and small travel size tissues (for a romance or comedy movie :wink: ), all wrapped in stamped stuff, of course! Should be cute. I like your Jiffy Pop cover - lovin' the chalk ink pads!!!

Ok. This may sound silly but I'll have about 15 minutes tonight to hit Target while my son is at his drum lessons so exactly where in Target can I find these? They're probably in different departments in different stores but your help would be most appreciated.

There is a spot called "the dollar spot" and they are there, they cost a buck a piece. I saw them there and thought what could I do with these, now I know! Thanks for the inspiration, they are awesome.
