It’s December 1st and you know what that means – only 24 days left to orchestrate every holiday detail imaginable! Don’t worry – I’m here to help with at least one of the items on your “to do” list! It’s Wendy Sue here with you today, and I have a super easy, quick, and FUN project you can make for friends, neighbors, teachers, or anyone else you might want to whip up a little handmade gift/treat for! Here’s a peek at the finished product – and you can scroll on down for details. You won’t believe how easy these are!
The “Winter Wonderland” collection is perfect for these wintery treat gifts – because it’s super cute plus it coordinates beautifully with these little berry baskets I purchased at Pebbles In My Pocket! Start by cutting two strips of patterned paper for each basket – one about 2″x6″ and the other one a bit smaller, about 3/4″ x 6″ and then cut notches in each end. Layer them up starting with a big glittery snowflake, then additional dies, stickers, or embellishments!
It’s easiest to make these in an assembly-line style – so do all of the banners, then add them to the fronts of the berry baskets with dimensional foam dots!
Now gather some some of the die-cut “chips” from the collection and the 3×4 cards, cut from a full 12×12 paper. All you need to do is tape a lollipop stick (mine are by Wilton) to the back of some of these cute pieces. Also, you can embellish the 3×4 cards with additional die-cuts or stickers if you want! 🙂
The “treat” part of the gift is even super easy! I whipped up two of our family favorites – white chocolate covered popcorn and white chocolate covered pretzels. Yes, we love our white chocolate! To make the treats a bit more festive I mixed in some colored sixlets in with the popcorn (you can’t even imagine how excited I was to find these turquoise, white, and purple sixlets in the holiday baking section), and I added some coordinating cupcake sprinkles on the pretzels before the chocolate coating was cool!
After I wrapped the treats in cellophane and tied the tops with coordinating ribbon, I added the “lollipops!”
If you don’t want to make homemade treats, you can always add some store-bought goodies in these cute little baskets too!!
I am so excited to share these treats with some special friends this season! If you make some of these, please share a link to your finished project – we’d LOVE to see!!
