Christmas Treats

I am a fan of treats at Christmas. This is another class coming up, it is a set of Christmas Treats that are perfect for kids (or adults too). Many of these I have done each year (they are oldies but goodies - excuse the pun).

There is Snowman Soup, Reindeer Poop, Rudolph's Red Nose Repair Kit, a Reindeer Stick and a Gift Card Holder. Now you are probably thinking that Rudolph had a red nose - yes he does, but I didn't have any jaffas on hand, but don't worry I will have some for class.

The Snowman Soup has a hot chocolate sachet, marshmallows, candy cane and chocolate santa - to create a super special hot chocolate - not exactly a summer weather drink, but special enough to have anytime.

The gift card holder is made with a piece of cardstock cut at 4 1/8" by 11" (you can get two out of piece of cardstock). This is scored at 3", 5 1/2", and 8" and folded in a "W". I then used the word window punch and a circle punch for the gift card opening (but don't forget to close the other end).

Add some ribbon and some DSP and decorations to the outside and inside and you have a perfect gift card holder.
