Tis the Season?

Yes, I know it's only the beginning of October, but you can never start too early on Christmas planning!  Actually this all came about because of the challenges going on at Cath's Moxie Fab World blog.  A couple of weeks ago they were celebrating their new issue "Holiday Cards and More", and then designed some challenges to go along with it.  I'll admit to you that I don't make my own Christmas cards.  It's the time of year that I need to go simpler and quicker.  But I do LOVE making cute little gifts, especially fun ways to give away treats at Christmastime.  I'll also admit that I save a LOT of different items throughout the year, thinking that some day it will be perfect for making it into something else.  So for the Season's Giftings Challenge, I made a little treat container that would be perfect for the neighbor, teacher, or friend.

It started out like this:

And this is what I turned it into.   

The house paper is from Fancy Pants, the alpha stickers are from Cosmo Cricket.  I printed out the house sentiment from my computer and die cut it with my cuttlebug. 

So next time you're about to toss that empty container, think first about what you could make it into.  I think anyone would be happy to receive some treats in just about anything!

Have a great week!
