Mini Santa Bags

At the end of the school year, all the kids give each other cards, usually with candy canes, or choccies on them. I decided to make use of the nestabilities that my sister gave me, and make little flaps at the top over a small plastic bag. I just stamped the topper with white frost "merry christmas" and used the white gel pen for the stitching and "from..." I then stapled it over the bag which contained the choccie. The kids were really excited to take them to share. The snowflake is just a confetti shape that I was given.

Christmas treat boxes

I made these after being inspired by Maria from Stampininspirations (check out the link ). I gave these to customers who took part in a workshop in December. I popped a lindt ball in each one as a small gift. These ones are made using the merry christmas range and white mini rick rack. I also made them using the same range of paper, but the green swirl one. Both looked so cute (even if I may say so myself!). Maria has the template on her blog - I think they are called: Mini gift boxes... Anyway, give them a go because they are great for having on hand to give a little something to someone, to say "thank you" or a small "happy birthday" gesture.
