Tomorrow, the 21st, is my day to be featured at the Unscripted Sketches blog and so I wanted to share a couple easy ideas with you.
Maybe it's because I am a chocoholic but I think that a little gift of candy is a great idea. Something you can hand to the neighbors or co-workers. Maybe a party favor for the many holiday parties that take place. This first one is super simple and it is also a way to recycle. I used a little plastic tub that holds baby food. At one time, we were going through many of these and I knew they would be good for something. SOOOO... I filled one with Christmas colored M&M's and made a very simple decoration for the top. My little decoration is a snowman stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms. This was finished with a big bow.
For this one, I folded a piece of cardstock so that it wrapped a little bag of candy. The design on the front is actually a digital stamp. I printed it out on colored cardstock and made a paper piecing out of it so the tree has layers that are embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Core'dinations cardstock makes it easy to make this pretty cute. This one also fits the Little Red Wagon challenge #37 to use a tree on a project.
Here is a side view so you can see the bag of candy tucked inside. These truffles came in a little bag so it was all ready to go.
Thanks for visiting here and at Unscripted sketches, Linda (lbpost)
