Elf Season is here . . .

Here are a few of the treat holders I have been working on recently ---

Snowman Nuggets --- Used the small snowman face stamp from The hat is a fingertip cut off a pair of gloves from the dollar store. Added a sparkly pom pom at the top of his hat:

Another nugget decorated for Christmas with Santa in mind:

Used red card stock and black card stock from Mikes. Cut the red piece 11" long by 3 1/8". Made a line across the center with a ruler and a pencil. Covered the line with red sticky tape and put the 11" by 1/4" piece of black card stock onto the red:

Once the black strip was on the red card stock I took it to the trimmer and cut this every 1" for the nugget wrappers. Using a 1/2" circle punch I punched out circles from sliver glittered card stock. Then used a 1/4" circle punch and punched out black circles. Put these two circles together using glue dots:

Put the red/black wrappers around the nugget candies and then put the circles on top of those. Made a black card stock "tray" to put the nuggets on and put these in a pretzel bag from the candy aisle at the craft store.

This next treat holder came about from ribbon I just bought on sale at Mikes yesterday with a stamping buddy:

That ribbon inspired my Reindeer Noses treats. Used Whopper candies and a cinnamon candy for the red nose. The reindeer is from the Stampin Up Holiday Helpers. The "reindeer noses" stamp is from Easy treat holder:

Used clear Wink of Stella for the shine on his nose. Now to the Candy Cane Seeds container --

Metal container is sold in a pack of 4 at the dollar store. Inside this container is Peppermint candy from Brach's. For the top of the container I used a large circle punch and punched out silver glittered card stock -- put that circle on the lid using tear and tape:

The glittery candy cane is from the foam holiday project display for kids at Mikes. The candy cane has adhesive on the back so that is how it is on the lid. Used two bow punches for the red foil box and the sliver glittery bow. Added a red crystal to the center of the bows. The "Candy Cane Seeds" tag was typed up on the computer and printed out on white/GP card stock. Used the SU Classic Label punch to punch that out. Here is a photo to show the side of this container -- I used tear and tape to put this ribbon around the metal container:

This photo shows some of the sparkle on the candy cane piece:

More projects will be posted as they are completed.... phew!! No wonder it takes the Elves a FULL year to be ready!!! Wink, wink.... TFL
