If you’re running around like crazy take a rest with these easy last minute homemade Christmas gifts.  I’m so excited to share these little guys! I could hardly wait for my Facebook Live last night.  Catch it here with all the steps.

If you did miss the Live, you might want to join my Facebook Group, Design with Jo VIPeeps.  Then you can come craft with me in my studio every week too.  Plus, you’ll get exclusive deals and tips and FB Live projects I only share with my VIPeeps!

I must admit I had a full package of the acetate boxes hanging around my studio.  I designed a stinkin’ cute gift box you can see in this post.  But then they’ve been sitting around gathering dust! 

But now, I’ve gone through a WHOLE package in a couple days designing these fun treat holders.  So how about we get to the project so you can see them all too?

Isn’t it the cutest?  A perfect little box with yummy treats and goodies for ANYONE on your list. 

  • your mailman
  • the dog walker
  • your UPS truck driver
  • your nephew
  • the grocery packer
  • the flight attendant…  I think you get the idea😋.

What do I like BEST about them? 


  1. inexpensive
  2. fun to make
  3. quick to put together
  4. ideal for almost everyone
  5. and so adorable you might just want to keep them all for yourself!

Let me show you everything I used so you can start whipping these up right away.  Then we’ll get to the video.
