Hot Chocolate Gift Pack

One of my all time favorite Christmas gifts I've made! A little time consuming, but a cute and inexpensive gift for teachers, neighbors, etc. And of course another reason to keep drinking/hoarding those Frappuccinos!

Hoarding: Buried by Frapp bottles!

Hopefully, you won't see me on a Hoarding episode. But since I've been hoarding Frapp bottles for awhile, I decided to decorate and fill some to sell! I made some with peppermint balls and some with hot chocolate and marshmallows.

Deer Friend

Another craft sale item. I've made these for my son's class party before and the kids loved them!
I cut the pillow boxes out of plastic report covers that I bought at the copy counter at Office Max. I think I paid about .15 per 8 1/2 X 11 sheet and I was able to get 2 from each sheet. Much cheaper than acetate! I added red Stickles to Rudolph's nose to give them a little sparkle.

Got Merry?

Another craft sale item I made. I thought these turned out so cute!
I filled them with red and green m&m's.

A Little Something

I also made these to sell at at school:
 The gift card holders have a velcro dot to hold them close and give it a wallet-like effect.
The matchboxes have Hershey nuggets wrapped in coordinating paper.

Peppermint Patty Sandwich

Sorry I haven't posted lately. I've had computer problems and I've been busy making Christmas goodies to sell to raise money for my daughter's band trip to Disney World. Here's one of the things I made:
 Peppermint Patties are sandwiched between scallop punches. They fit perfectly in Wilton pretzel bags to make a cute treat. I've also cut the bags down and added only 2 or 3 if I was trying to save time and money.
