Hershey Santa Clause



Good morning Stampers!

We have just come home from a little work/mini vacation from Kona. Just completed our first holiday craft fair for the season. Since we needed to travel a bit for this two day event, we decided to make it a mini vacation too. We all enjoyed our time there. Hopefully we will be able to make this our annual getaway.

It's cyber Monday and I thought that I would give you a sweet treat--Santa Hershey Bar Holder.  This was a hit at the craft fair. Sold out on these candy bars really fast. This is a cute gift giving idea-stocking stuffer, office grab bag gift or maybe a gift for your favorite teacher. Love this idea and found it on Kerry's blog. I altered her idea a bit and I thought it came out just as sweet.
