Today I’m sharing with you a simple Christmas gift that would work for acquaintances or close friends or neighbors.
One of the things that I enjoy doing during the Christmas season is making treats. I think we all do, don’t we?! My grandmothers toffee is at the top of my favorite list. I remember her sharing her toffee with me when I was a kid. We never made it at home, but we always got it when we went to grandma and grandpas house.
After my husband and I got married, I thought I’d give it a try! I got it to work!! I was so excited! I’ve made it for a few different years at Christmas time. Well, after we moved to where we are living now, I tried making it and it didn’t turn out right for me, it went sugary. 🙁 I was so sad. This year I asked my sister if she wanted to get together at her house and try and make some. We got together last night and between the two of us, we made 7 double batches, and it didn’t go sugary at her house! (Humidity has something to do with if it goes sugary or not.) I was so excited!
So, I bagged some up and I’m sharing the packaging with you today.
I started with my cellophane bag, I cut a piece of cute paper into a 6 inch square and folded it in half. Then I inked all my edges.
Next I folded down the bag, and stapled the paper to the top. I got out some cute ribbon and tied it around the paper.
Using my Cricut Expression, the free Cricut Craft Room and the Home Accents cartridge I cut out this fun label, inked the edges, stamped “Merry Christmas to you” on it and put it on under the ribbon.
I love the way the topper turned out!
I hope you like this simple and easy Christmas gift that would work for anyone!
