Christmas You've Been Jingled + Cute Way to Package Treats for Neighbor Gifts, Family & Friends

 We wanted to make something special for you to put your treats into. What's more appropriate than a Christmas ornament, filled with Christmas treats.  Use your favorite double-sided Christmas paper. Embellishments them with whatever you have on hand an you've got something special to put your treats into. Since the ornament is round and wouldn't stand upright on their own we designed a easy-to-make box to put them into.  We were able to fit an entire bag of Hershey Kisses into a ornament so you know you could fit several treats inside.

  Our "You've been jingled" printables can be used whether you drop off treats, knock and run or simply ring the doorbell and give the treats to your favorite people.

There are two printable sheets, a fun instruction sheet with a poem that you include with the treat and one for the recipient to put on their door or in their window.

Click HERE to get the printables and a complete photo tutorial for both the ornament and box.

Neighbor, Family, Friends and Co-Workers Christmas Gifts-Orange You Glad We're friends, We Are!

Giving oranges for Christmas has been a tradition for many many years. Kids used to get oranges in their stockings, in fact I'm pretty sure they still are. Here's a fun way to give your family, friends and co-workers a delicious Christmas basket of clementines all dressed up in a festive Christmas design.

It such a easy kit to assemble. The photo above has brown crinkle paper in the bottom of the bag but that is certainly optional (crinkle paper isn't included in the kit but you can purchase a good sized bag at The Dollar Store for $1) We used the "Cutie' brand clementines for our samples and they are super sweet and delicious and fit perfectly in the cellophane bag with supply.

We filled a Christmas tin from Hobby Lobby with the brown crinkle paper and the placed the cellophane bags of clementines inside the tin leaving space for small pine cones, and holly leaves. We tied the green stripe ribbon around the tin and used green twine to tie on the "Merry Christmas" tag. Such a festive gift to give family, neighbors and friends.  Hobby Lobby has a HUGE assortment of tins this time of year…..small, large, tall, round, square and more. Currently all Christmas is 50% off at Hobby Lobby (I get nothing for this endorsement, just helping you find the best price on tins)

A little gluing and tying required to assemble tag. "Orange you glad we're friends? We are!  

You can put the crinkle paper in the bag or leave it out, it's totally optional

The size of the tin you purchase will dictate how many clementines you put in it, of course. We got the green stripe ribbon at Joann's and you can get a roll of for 40% off any day of the week at Joanns's if you show them the coupon from Hobby Lobby app on your cell phone. They will honor that discount.

CLICK HERE to go to our Etsy shop and get more information on this fun Christmas kit and get one for yourself. There are many different sizes available. If you can glue and tie a bow you're got this!   We ship same or next day too. Be sure to order early!!!

The Cutest Christmas Candy Cane Treat Box-It's got GLITTER~Nice until Proven Naughty

Merry Christmas!  It's the best time of the year and we're celebrating with our Candy Cane treat boxes with the tag "NICE until proven Naughty!  Let's just say everyone is nice, especially this time of year when people go out of their way to do great things for others.  If you're a "Scrooge" then this could  brighten up your day!

Our brand new design for this year includes two candy canes cut out of red glitter paper and then assembled and backed with premium white cardstock. We then added a whimsical green and white stripe bow to add texture and dimension.  If you bend out the top of the bow on each side it really pops!

You can add crinkle paper if you like. We get ours at The Dollar Store where a package is guessed it, $1. They have a lot of colors. You can also get the crinkle paper at any craft store.  Zurchers Party Store has the best price on crinkle paper. 

Without crinkle paper you can fit in up to 17 Hershey Christmas Kisses (Currently Costco has a  3 lb 4 oz package which ends up being half price compared to buying that many packages from other stores. They are all dressed up in Santa's cap and Sweater designs. Solid chocolate, no nuts or anything else inside.   I've been eating them today and I'm embarrassed to tell you how many I've had...Okay I'm a chocoholic, I admit it, and I LOVE Hershey chocolate.

Showing the back of the treat box in this photo. I love the scalloped edge on the flap. The box measures 2.5" wide, 2" deep and 4" tall. Just the right size for a Christmas party favor, Neighbor gifts or to take to the office to share with Co-Workers and Employees.  

Now  here's the tag that says "Nice until proven Naughty" The candy cane clip just finishes off the design.  I think it's appropriate for everyone as we are all a little nicer at this time of year.

So many fun things!

Gotta See our Newest Design for Christmas-Merry Snowman Treat Bags-Party Favors, Gifts and More

Our newest design for Christmas is a fun "Merry Snowman" treat bag. If you follow us you know that it's all about the "CANDY" for us. Almost everything we create has to do with treats.  So for Christmas we present this fun way to give treats. It's our favorite snowman all dressed up with a red or green scarf.  We have this same snowman in a candy bar wrap and a treat box (You'll definitely want to see these designs) 

The "North Pole" piece comes fully assembled. All you do is glue it to the front of the tag. The 2 snowmen just need their scarf glued on.  After you have attached all 3 pieces on the tag you fill the cellophane bag with your favorite treat and staple the bag to the tag.  Then, with foam dots, you adhere the snow drift to the front of the tag,  and it covers up the staples. (I don't like seeing the staples! ) Doesn't that sound easy? It is!  The cellophane bag measures 4" tall x 3" wide. The tag is also 3" wide. 

I know some of you out there are great crafters and some are beginners and out kits are great for both of you.....What's so great about what we create?  We make all the decisions about what colors to use, what cardstock to purchase, what embellishments to purchase and we cut out everything for you. All you do is assemble. Leave all the headaches to us. Everything comes cut out and individually organized and packaged. So much easier to buy our kits than try to put it together for yourself....not to mention that all of our kits are copyrighted.  Do the easy thing.......make a purchase by clicking HERE   You will be so glad you did.

One MORE fun idea.......We LOVE friends that purchase early.  By doing this you make sure you do get the kit you want.....You can put it together at your leisure and be more than ready for the holiday.   You'll be so glad you did.

So COME ON OVER and visit our ETSY SHOP 
So many fun designs for the holidays!

THANKSGIVING TREAT: Acorn Cookies, Hershey Kisses & Nutter Butter Cookies

Have you made these cute little acorn cookies yet? They are super easy to make. The perfect treat for Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving.  Also an excellent treat to put in the kid's lunchbox When we made these yummy cookies, the children helping that day were 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 years old. Fun was had by all! 

 We made our acorn cookies with the a Caramel Hershey Kiss. They were amazing!  You could also use the new Pumpkin Spice Kiss or a Chocolate Kiss.

Here are your ingredients. (1) Mini Nutter Butter cookies (2) Caramel Hershey Kiss and (3) Mini chocolate chips. Using just the top of a Nutter Butter cookie looks great and you can get more acorn cookies per bag. The creamy center of the cookie comes right off.

We wanted to use regular sized chocolate chips (because that's what we always have on hand)  I think they looked nice too.  The butterscotch mini chocolate chips are another choice. Melt your chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a microwave and use as glue for the kiss and chocolate chip on top.  You know, it might be easier to put your melted chocolate in an icing bag and just put a drop of glue (chocolate) on the top and bottom of the cookie and then add the Hershey kiss and the chocolate chips. That way there would be no excess. I found I had to do all the tops (mini chocolate chips) first and let them set and then do it again with the Hershey Kiss.

Then there is this fun recipe from Hershey  called Kisses Acorn Cookies, that looks super easy to do too.  The perfect Thanksgiving activity for the kids.  Find the recipe HERE

Thanksgiving Coloring Book and Activities for kids-Put It All In a Personalized Binder

We've come up with a Thanksgiving activity the kids actually like and spend "happy time" doing.  We have made up these coloring and activity books for our grandkids for the past 2 years and they definitely work their magic!  Just pick out their favorite movie and book characters from the list below, print them out and insert into this binder. Great fun for the Kid's Table!

No more fighting over crayons!  Give everyone their own special bag of crayons with our cute bag topper and you'll be soooooo organized! The 4" wide bag holds 10 crayons.  There are four different tag toppers. You can get the 4" wide  x 6" tall  bags at any craft store.

Write the kids name on the Thanksgiving binder cover printable. There is also a vertical label that you glue to the side of the binder that you can write their name on.  

Adhere the side piece to the binder and write the kid's names.  The side label makes it easy for the kids to grab their own book when they are stored on the shelf.  We bought these 1" binders at Costco and they were just over $1 for each binder (set of 6) You can find them at any office supply store too. 

Copy and put the kid's favorite coloring pages inside the book.  They are going to have Sooooo much fun with it!

I can tell you from experience that as the adults are hustling around, getting the Thanksgiving meal together, it was great to see all the kids sitting around a table talking to each other, coloring, interacting and genuinely having fun with each other.  No iPads, computers or cell phones needed. They were really having fun.

Halloween Treat Boxes All Dressed Up As A Candy Corn-Gotta See! Candy, Cookies, Chocolate and More

While working one day I looked over at these two popcorn boxes that I had stacked together to get them out of the way. One was yellow and one was orange. At that moment I said to myself..... "Hey, that looks like a candy corn"  And that was the beginning moment of this design. A candy corn treat box. (measures 3" wide x 3" deep x 4" tall)

What kind of treats do you need during the month of Halloween? Do you give special treats to your favorite trick or treaters?  How about your friends at work? Wouldn't your employees appreciate one of these? Are you hosting a Halloween party........Need a party favor? We can help! 

chocolate covered popcorn
candy corn
full sized candy bars
Halloween cookies
gift card and candy
Hershey kisses
Hershey nuggets
cinnamon bears
Halloween candy
peanut brittle
and most any kind of candy or treat

I love this saying because, quite frankly, I am a chocoholic and will always be.  Although I do like other candy but chocolate, nuts, and caramel is the best!  Have you ever tried the turtles or cavaliers from Mrs. Cavanaughs? They are absolutely the best. Now that would be a special treat for someone extra special. Imagine them in individual cellophane bags inside this cute treat box.  I would LOVE to receive that treat box.  

We've taken two medium sized popcorn boxes (3" wide x 3" deep x 4" tall) and nestled the together, partly to make it a stronger box but mostly to make the boxes look like a candy corn....but the result is a stronger box that is MORE festive. The tag is aged on the edges to give it that "aged" Halloween look. The candy corns are layered with premium cardstock to give it a 3D look. And finally you add your favorite treat/candy. It doesn't have to be a candy corn. You could put your favorite recipe for chocolate covered popcorn inside, your favorite full-sized candy bars or even your much sought after Halloween cookies. Use the crinkle paper to fill the box to the proper level for the treat you are going to put inside. A lot of crinkle paper means a smaller treat while a little crinkle paper allows for more treats. I guess it depends on who you are giving them to. A lot for the co-workers at your office and a little for the kids in your child's classroom? 

We gather the supplies you need to assemble each box. You only adhere the tags and candy corn cutouts and put your treat in the cellophane bag and you're done. Super Simple! Kit contains what you see above plus foam dots, and of course, easy-to-follow-instructions though with this all you need to do is look at the package photo. The crinkle paper isn't included but you can get a nice sized bag at The Dollar Store for $1.  We used white to make the 3 colors of the candy corn complete but you could use orange, black or yellow.  

You can get MORE details in our Etsy shop. Don't wait too long to purchase because we have a limited amount of popcorn boxes for the kits (no, really)
