I cannot believe we are already in December! I have been busy with the kids activites, teacher/parent conferences,and crafting for the upcoming holiday! Lots to do, but really trying to enjoy quiet time with my kids.
Today, I have a cute way to package small treats to share with you! I had these test tubes on hand, that I purchased from Michaels. They were a great size to tuck in all types of small candy. I kept the embellishing pretty simply, and used a gingerbread diecut for the middle of the tube.
Here are seven of the cute gingerbread buttons on a stand, made for me by my friend. This would be perfect as a party favor, a small gift for a teacher, or how about at a gingerbread house party? You can fill them with all different types of candy that the kids can use while decorating their gingerbread house. One of our Christmas Eve's traditions is to decorate gingerbread houses. I will definitely have a few of these on hand for my kids. This year, all three of my kids will have their very own gingerbread house! (lesson learned from previous years)
At the top of each tube, I stuck a different pin into the top. Then I simply tied some twine, and hung a small decorative tag. A bit more ribbon for a festive touch!
I did ink around the gingerbread man, and used Pebbles dots to decorate the body. These have been in a bag, so they are a bit wrinkled in some areas(;
So easy to decorate, and a great packaging idea for the upcoming Christmas season! My Macie has a birthday party tomorrow, and I think this will also be part of their favors!
Hope you, and your family are enjoying the holiday season!
