I recently attended Leadership training in Orlando, Florida and got to spend one evening with my husband at an exclusive event for Stampin' Up! Managers and above at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventures. We got to eat yummy food, drink Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice, watch a wand choose a wizard at Ollivander's, ride roller coasters, and tour the shops. It was a lot of fun!
One of my purchases from Honeydukes was some Peppermint Toads (chocolate peppermint candies in the shape of toads) for my Club Members. I gave each of my Club Members a little bag of Peppermint Toads with a tag I think is worthy of Harry Potter as an extra goody along with their January Club Orders. Enjoy!

To make the sorting hat, I simply stamped the witches hat image from the Wicked Cool Set in Early Espresso Ink onto Chocolate Chip Card Stock. I then used the Early Espresso Marker to color in the band on the image. After cutting the hat out with Paper Snips, I crumpled it with my fingers to make it look beat up and shabby like the Sorting Hat.
What do you think? Would Harry, Hermione, and Ron approve?
