All That Scraps Wednesday.....Holiday Gift Ideas

Note* This is my second post for today, please scroll down for The Pixie Cottages Sparkle & Shine Challenge.

Hello Again!

This weeks All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge is to make gifts for the holiday season. I made a trio of gifts that range from a cocoa treat holder, a nugget treat box and a mini decorated tin.

I found the inspiration for my cocoa treat holder here and the instructions are super easy to follow. Perched on top of the cocoa treat holder is the adorable new C.C. Designs Sugarplum "Brr Emma". I settled for traditional holiday colors and added gold embellishments for sparkle.
A few months ago, I brought a die-cut from my local scrap store. The scalloped die cut was a mini treat holder that had enough room for a single nugget candy. I made a template from the die cut and after several attempts, I came up with a version similar to the one I brought from my LSS.
My treat bag was made with Spellbinder dies and this is what the inside of my treat holder looks like. There is just enough room for a single nugget or in my case, two Hershey's Bliss Chocolates. I also decorated a mini round tin with design papers, ribbon, a flower, gold cord and a tiny gold bell.
The inside of the tin is filled with a few York mini Peppermint Patties.
