What makes our little treat box such a – well – ‘treat’?

Simplicity is key here. You can decorate these to the nines, but if you’re in a rush, you’ll find it’s one of the fastest little goodies SU! has!

What are the benefits to making your own crackers?

  • you can pick whatever papers you have in your stash (you only need a piece that 5″ x 6″)
  • mix and match all the stamps and inks you have to create a fun little greeting
  • you can fill them with whatever you wish! Some other ideas our class participants had: lip balms, Andes chocolate mints, Hershey nuggets, mints, pieces of jewelry, crayons…really there’s no limit to what will fit in here!

I hope you also picked up some of the tips in the video?

Things like:

  • how to add your glue – and which glue I like the best
  • where to start to adhere it together for the best results
  • how to always get your bow to look even
  • and many more!

Would you make these for your table?

Gift-giving becomes an absolute delight with our cute red and green packaging. I’m making mine for a pre-Christmas dinner evening with friends.
