I mentioned in my post yesterday that having fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year has put a wrinkle in my to-do list. I normally make lots of homemade treats to mail out to family and friends, but this year I wasn't really expecting to have so little extra time! So, some store-bought treats were assembled instead for packages that needed mailing. It's still all good, right!? *grin*
This is one of the containers I altered, and filled with individually wrapped chocolate nuggets. The pail is from Stampendous. I chose pretty papers from the Lost & Found Special Christmas Edition by My Minds Eye. I love that the reds on the paper are even glittered! I used a vintage red pipe cleaner, some pretty silver leaves, a holly leaf made with the Sizzix Embosslit, some cute little painted pinecones, and some red pip berries to decorate the top of the container. A pretty red gingham ribbon bow is tied to the handle.
