It's that time again to make those hand-out treats I make for bank tellers, grocery store workers, and store employees/cashiers where we shop. I also hand these out to delivery drivers if they're kind enough to deliver packages to our front door. Most just drop them in front of the garage unfortunately, but I do appreciate those who take the time to deliver right to the door. This is a great way to use up those small snippets of paper and make them useful and I also get to use a wide assortment of older stamps, punches, and die-cut images.
Here's a sampling of the matchbox treats that hold a Ghiradelli candy perfectly and I can use up some of those hundreds of brads I've accumulated through the years.
These boxes contain a peppermint snowman candy also from Ghiradelli. The boxes I designed didn't stay closed, so I tied them up with twine to keep things together.
This has always been a favorite of mine to make. They contain Hershey nugget candies and this is a version for 3 nuggets.
Here they are opened...
And this gives you an idea of how I decorated the candies by using some mini punches (r) from SU!
Here are a few of the 2 nugget boxes. Front and center is a piece of SU! retired gingerbread dsp and I just colored the little guy with some glaze pens
These treat holders also hold a Ghiradelli candy. It's just a strip of cardstock with punched ends and a little double sticky tape inside to anchor the candy and a bit of twine to tie the ends together.
Of course I had to make a few masculine versions for the guys too.
I used up a lot of snippets to make everything, so of course I'm going to enter these into the Snippets Playground #417
If you're still with me after this photo-heavy post, thanks! I'm glad these treats are finished and ready to hand out. I really do enjoy making them for all the holidays all year, and it helps use up those piles of snippets too! It's the smiles I get when handing them out that brings me special joy. 😊
Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
