Pretty Packages for Homemade Gifts - Sweet Season Stamp Set and Merry Moments DSP

During the holiday season, many of us love to share our home-made baked goods or hand crafted items with our friends and family. After all that hard work, those gifts should be presented in a special way. Here are just a few examples of how you can make a lovely presentation when giving those hand-made gifts with the Sweet Season stamp set and Merry Moments designer series paper. To order the Sweet Season stamp set and Merry Moments designer series paper contact me or click here to order directly from my website. You can also contact me directly for patterns to make the small bag and cookie tent.

Create a small bag with red card stock and wrap some Merry Moments paper around the center. Add a stamped image such as the Santa from the Christmas Punch hostess set and finish off with a chocolate chip ribbon and corduroy brads.

This "cookie tent" features the snow flake stamp from Sweet Season along with my favorite paper from Merry Moments.

For larger baked goods or items that you present in a jar, attach a beautiful tag complete with glitter and buttons using a pretty ribbon. Here the gingerbread stamp from Sweet Seasons is used along with candy striped paper from Merry Moments.

OR thread a Sweet Season "From Our House to Yours" tag with ribbon and wrap around the jar.

My prayers have been answered with these new Stampin' Up! Treat Boxes. Each year I give my neighbors a package of home baked goodies and always have a problem finding a affordable, pretty containers. These new treat boxes are large enough for my goodies, are food safe and VERY inexpensive. A package of 5 is only $3.95. The boxes are 4-5/8" x 2-3/8" x 6-1/8". Just add a ribbon and "From Our House to Yours" stamp from Sweet Season and you have a lovely package that you can make in under 2 minutes. Pretty and fast!
