DIY Food Gift Idea #3
As we look at Thanksgiving weekend 2013 in the rearview mirror, we hope you shared plenty of turkey and gravy with those you love best. Welcome to the official start of the 2013 holiday gift giving season! We’re continuing with the series we promised that includes simple, inexpensive, DIY Christmas gift ideas with ten steps or less. This post features a food gift package idea which, of course, includes custom food stickers. It’s so simple it almost doesn’t need instructions, but we’ll include them, just in case you’ve been sipping on a few glasses of wine and need clarification!
We’re fans of receiving baked goods for the holidays and anything with pretty gift wrap makes receiving a food gift even more appealing. This scallop popcorn treat box is just the thing for homemade Christmas gifts.
Here is a list of materials you’ll need:
- Wilton Popcorn Treat Boxes 4/Pkg-White (We found these at Joann Fabric and Craft store for $1.99)
- Length of fabric ribbon – 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch wide
- Custom food sticker from Bottle Your Brand (We used this food sticker)
- Medium cellophane treat bag- 9 1/2 in tall x 4 in wide x 2 1/4 in deep (About $2.99 for 25)
- Mini Christmas ornament or sprig of holiday greens
- Fishing line or baker’s twine
Order the food sticker Cookies from Bottle Your Brand. This sticker is 2 inches wide by 3 inches high. It works very well on the treat box. When the sticker arrives, usually within a week, peel the protective backing off the sticker and place it on the treat box.
Take the cello bag and fill with your treats. Leave space at the top of the cello bag for tying the ribbon.
Thread the ribbon through the top of the mini-ornament using fishing line or baker’s twine. Tie the bow and slide the ornament to the knot area of the bow. Finish tying the bow around the neck of the cello bag.
Place the cello bag inside the labeled scallop popcorn treat box.
That’s it! Not a complicated gift wrapping idea, but one that makes you looks like gift wrapping genius.
