Christmas Treat Containers

One of my favorite hobbies (aside from stamping, of course!) is baking. So every Christmas I do a ton of it to give away to friends, family, neighbors, and a little for our own family :). I also try to create containers for the goodies to make it extra special. Today's post features a few from this year.

I was ecstatic to see that in the 2009-2010 IBC, Stampin' Up started offering adorable pre-cut and scored treat boxes (pg 159 -115690). These are especially nice because they are coated and are considered food-safe. Plus they are so adorable that you could leave them as is, or add just a few elements to dress them up. For my treat boxes, I simply added ribbon, gold cord, and tags (using sticky die cuts from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit- 115696).

Back in September, I purchased a bunch of specialty candy corn for some favors that I was making. I decided to save the boxes for filling with Christmas treats. I simply peeled off the labels, washed them out and embellished them with ribbon, buttons, and more Christmas Jingle SS elements. So easy!

Carrie, your ideas came just in time! I have lots of those labels and those treat boxes. I'm going to a cookie exchange tomorrow and didn't know how I was going to decorate my boxes! Thanks for sharing.
