It’s Border Buddy Saturday and it’s Alison here today. I remember when my kids were little they were much more interested in the box the gift came in than they were with the goodies inside. I find myself now in the same place when it comes to pretty wrapping. Sometimes the pretty gift packaging is as nice as the gift inside.
These little packages of goodies are so easy to make for any occasion. I used our 2″ x 8″ Cellophane Bags and loaded them with candy treats. Then I topped them with a character from the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set. These little images are so nostalgic and can be cut out with the Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies (buy together and save 10%).
The Halloween treat bag is filled with Hersey’s Nugget Candies wrapped in a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I just cut them 1″ x 3″ and wrapped them around the nugget and then filled the bag. So cute and super easy. You could also fill them with Candy Corn or another Halloween treat.
The Reindeer and Snowman bags are filled with chocolate covered raisins and Scotch Mints representing reindeer “poop” and snowman “poop”.
The little rhyme on the side of the bags ready:
I’ve heard that you’ve been naughty!
Now listen, here’s the scoop.
I’m running short on coal this year,
So you get Reindeer (or snowman) Poop!
The concept artists used some of these images for another cute packaging idea – Hot Chocolate in a Jar!
When you stamp the image it includes a front and a back and then you use the matching framelit to cut it out. So simple!
Here’s another Trick or Treat idea with the bags and Pumpkin topper:
