Hello sweet friends! Happy Friday to you! I hope you have all had a very wonderful week, and are looking forward to an even better weekend. Can you believe that tomorrow is the first of December already? Little squeal of panic escaping over here.
Every year for Christmas, I like to whip up a few handmade sweet treats as gifts for friends and neighbors. And I love packaging those treats into clear cello bags so you can immediately see the yumminess inside. Talk about your eye candy, right? Dress your package up with a pretty topper, and you’ve got a quick and easy gift idea for anybody on your list.
This week, we are pairing up with Simple Stories on the Epiphany Crafts blog. I used their adorable Harvest Lane collection for my topper here. I simply cut green gingham paper into a mini file folder to slip over the top of the cello bag. Added one of the pre-made Sn@p pockets and trimmed journaling card and dressed it up with a few easy accents.
The little house was fussy cut from the papers. The heart shaped opening was just the perfect size for a custom bubble cap made from Epiphany’s Heart 25 Shape Studio Tool. I made a matching custom gingham button using the Round 14 Button Tool for the center of my bow, and finished things off with a few cardstock stickers and a hand-stamped sentiment strip.
The pull-out journaling card was the perfect spot to jot down the recipe!
For more details, please visit the Epiphany Crafts blog. You’ll find my recipe for the peanut brittle at the end of the post, too. This is my favorite holiday sweet treat to make, as it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. My kinda baking! And be sure to enter the prize giveaway while you are there!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
