A "Sweet" Visiting Teaching Surprise!

I have had a very busy day and I don't forsee that I will have the time to make the popcorn treat for my visiting Teaching ladies as I go teaching tomorrow morning... So, I am thinking about what I already have that I could make into something cute.I remembered that I had purchased several packages of M & M's to mix with the Pink Popcorn goodie bags that I was going to give out at my nieces bridal shower this past weekend. Needless to say, I didn't get that done either, thus the extra bags of M & M's. Anyway, I came up with a very generic, simple header for tiny treat bags that I also already had, and filled them with M & M's. (You can pick up a variety of sizes of plastic bags from Xpedex.) The header read like this..."We love to visit you because you are so "SWEET". On the back side of the header it says "Love" which is actually a picture of a heart, and then "Your Visiting Teachers". I printed the header on a solid color of cardstock and cut them out. They turned out looking very cute.

The story continues... So my husband comes home from work and sees that I am working on something. I had just stapeled the header to the bag of candy and I said, "Come and see what I have just made to give to my sisters I visit teach." He looked at the little treat bags and read the header and replied...."Isn't that alittle Corney?"
Well, I guess that is the difference between Men and Women. Men don't care or even think about doing cute little things, but Women appreciate, and enjoy tiny little gifts. I wasn't offended by my husbands comments, in fact, I took it as a compliment, because I always get an opposite reaction from those I give cute little things to, than I got from my husband. I know my sisters will appreciate something thoughtful and handmade. (You can put in the bag anything that is sweet.)

I will attach the header template to this post for you to copy, cut out and use.I was actually going to do one with Pink Popcorn in it and say something different and I have that header all made, so I will attach it as well if you want something different. If you want me to add my pink popcorn recipe, just comment below or email me and I will type it up and add it later to this post. I hope you enjoy this cute little "SWEET" treat idea more than my husband did.

Katie, Your tags are too cute!!! Thanks for all of the time and energy you put into this "side" calling. :) Linda

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
