Christmas Treats

For my aunt's Christmas workshop a few weeks ago I went looking for something I could alter for little treats for each person to take home. At the Dollarama (I love that store!) I found these clear mini take out boxes. Inside each guest found maltesers and an ornament made with punches. The boxes were filled with shredded gold paper and the outside was embossed with white embossing powder. Definitely remember to use the embossing buddy! I wrecked a few boxes because they have lots of static and the powder sticks like crazy!

The ornament was taken from inspiration from a few ladies on splitcoaststampers.com, great ideas over there to inspire even more decorations! I used the following to create the ornaments:

Stamps: Season of Friendship
Ink: Always Artichoke
Paper: Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper (hostess)
Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1" punch, sticky strip, linen thread
Pin It!

These are so elegant - the gold with the white. They could be tree decorations if they aren't too big. I'm going out to the Dollarama at first opportunity! Hope they have them at mine. Thanks for sharing!
