Co-Worker Gifts

Today I took in some gifts for co-workers. I packaged up my cookies into little favor boxes I found in the bridal section at my local craft store. It was just the right size to place 4-5 cookies inside. Since we all get a little over sugared this time of year, I thought this was perfect. And it really is the thought that counts and, of course, the presentation:

The first batch coordinates with my Christmas card! And the second batch has a more whimsical feel, inspired by this card and the colors:

These were really simple to make. The boxes were $4.99 for 20, what a deal! The tags were quick and simple, too. I simply stamped the image and sentiment, all on one sheet and punched them out with a large circle punch. A little ribbon, twine, and a button (of course!) finished it off nicely. I am very pleased at how they turned out.

For those of you who are interested, you can find the recipe for yesterday's Peppermint Bark here. Another simple-but-oh-so-good recipe! I have a few more treat packages to share tomorrow, then I'm afraid I may be putting up my Christmas stamps until next year (boo!).

Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Snowfall Additions, Signature Christmas (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Ink: True Black, Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado (PTI)
Other: Scarlet Jewel, Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado and Aqua Mist vintage buttons (PTI), Rustic Jute Button Twine (PTI), Scarlet Jewel satin luxe ribbon (PTI), Ripe Avocado satin luxe ribbon (PTI), sheer dot ribbon, red grosgrain ribbon, red gingham ribbon, favor boxes (Wilton)
