Christmas Party Favors and Treats

Christmas is one of my most favorite times of the year. I made these treats last Christmas, but I didn't start my blog until January, so thought I'd share them with you now! :)

I made these small holiday favor boxes for my mom last year for her Christmas party. I assembled some small acrylic boxes, inserted some peppermints, glued a piece of PTI Pure Poppy saddle stitch ribbon (my favorite type of ribbon) and stamped the message from PTI Holiday Treats.

Super simple to do, but it looked great having a couple dozen of these lined up for the guests. And the clear boxes worked well so you could see the colorful, festive peppermints inside. Peppermints make a nice after dinner treat.

I also stamped some address labels using PTI's Holiday Treats set. That stamp set got a lot of use last year! And then I tied it up with Pure Poppy saddle stitch ribbon.

I also made some gingerbread man tins and stamped the cute gingerbread man again from the Holiday Treats set. And not all of the gingerbread cookies fit in the tins, so I just had to eat a few. ;)

This was my first time mass producing cards, so I wanted to keep it simple. Funny, I had bought several Christmas stamp sets and I ended up using a non-Christmas set, Sign Language by PTI.

Thanks for taking a look today! I have another post going up tomorrow with some chocolate wrappers I made this year. Hope you have a wonderful, sunny day! :)

Supplies (All Papertrey Ink unless otherwise listed.)

ETA: I actually posted this a couple of weeks ago. It was set to auto post after the Thanksgiving holiday, but I had a few glitches with it and so had to remove it. I'm just now reposting it. Sorry for the repost for those who may have already seen this. Don't mean to cause any confusion, but still wanted to share these projects!
