12 Crafts of Christmas part 10 - Gift packaging & wrapping

So once you've made your fun treats and all your wonderful handmade gifts, the wrapping begins!

I've got a few great ideas for packaging treats to give away
as well as a super cute and easy pillow box template to make packaging easy and cheap!

Now for my treat packaging I reused two different containers rather than throwing them away.
The first is the plastic container that your Crystal Light {or any knock off brand} comes in.
 Once you peal off the label its as easy as covering it with some cute paper and adding a cute ribbon and tag!
Look how perfect it is for stacking cookies! 
 Next thing I used was an old peanut container.  I covered it with paper just like the juice tub but this time I filled it with my yummy peppermint candy!
These were super quick and easy, but the best part is that they are free, and its a great way to recycle.

Ok on to the next. . .
You need something to wrap all that jewelry you've been making.  Or maybe a little something to jazz up those gift cards you're giving.
How about a pillow box?
 This little box is perfect for a necklace/earring set!
Now, here is s fab little template for you!

All you do is print this baby onto any piece of card stock that you want. 
Then you cut on the solid lines and score on the dotted lines, and fold.
A little glue on the flap and your box is ready to use!

Now that it is officially Christmas time, its time to break out the scissors and tape and start wrapping!
