Hand Warmers for the Holidays

As another handmade gift, I tried Camp Wander's Woolen Hand Warmers. They are meant to be heated and inserted into pockets on our way out in the morning to keep our hands warm. I deviated from her recipe in rice and oil amounts and stuck with Peppermint. (I didn't see a need for warming smells when it's early in the morning and I'm trying to get spry for the day.)
This project worked out really well for my thrifting fun since I have a couple of wool-containing sweaters that I felted to upcycle/recycle into something else.
I confess I really do enjoy playing with stamps and packaging (hopefully reusable or reycleable) even though I'll never start any scrapbooking clubs.
