Sweets of the Season

I am so excited to share the sneaks with you this month for Flourishes. Its Christmas time this week on my blog. hee hee This set is called Sweets of the Season. Lots of fabulous gift ideas with this set. First I am going to show you the little treat boxes that I will have at the bizarre with my mom. Yep more stuff for that. lol
My friends found these boxes in pkgs of 12 at the dollar store for me. They are plain white but with a little bit of paper, ribbons and goodies they can be totally cute. The bag has some peppermint drops in them. I love these candy canes don't you? This stripped candy cane ribbon goes great with the button from the Jovial Basic Grey button collection that I tied off with some twine.
I made this cute little box using the Nestabilities Lacey Squares shape. I cut them all out with the large die, then I scored about 1/8 of an inch in right on the border essentially. Folded it out and then threaded the twine through all the loops sides, top and bottom to secure it. Nothing too heavy can go in here I have some hot chocolate packages, a tissue covered box, some candies and a little note inside for the boys teacher. I have a boy and a girl gingerbread on each side along with the sentiment. Isn't that just so cute. I tied some suede ruffled chocolate ribbon along the top as well.

Check out the wonderful Christmas gift ideas the girls created and are sharing today:
