Seasonal Sampler Day #7: Treat Containers


Welcome to Day #7 of the "Seasonal Sampler" FREE blog event. Today I'm sharing some ideas for treat containers.

Over the years, I've come to the grand realization that dieting around the holidays is a REALLY bad idea. (Let's just say I'm an angry dieter; and holidays and an angry mother do NOT mix.) Plus who can resist all the delicious treats delivered by our wonderful friends and neighbors? I try to limit myself to just a few bites or a few treats each day, but I rarely have enough self-control to completely resist. It's just too delicious!

Today I wanted to share a few ideas for creating holiday treat containers so that you can dress up some of your holiday treats:

Add a holiday tag to a jar.

Wrap small candy bars with patterned paper and add a tag.

Then cover a jar with more decorations.

Clean out and alter an old tin.

Recycle packaging, clean, and add candy.

Fill a tin with your favorite candies and add a sticker or two to decorate.

There are so many easy ways to alter an older container. Have some fun and decorate your treat boxes and containers with your favorite holiday papers and embellishments. I've suggested a few products you could use below!

Challenge: Create a treat container filled with holiday goodies and then make a plan to deliver it to your friends or neighbors. Take a picture BEFORE delivering it and share it in your favorite online gallery or personal blog. Leave me a link to your completed treat container. Be sure to leave your email (in code if you prefer) so I can notify you if you win. I'll enter you name into the Grand Prize Drawing for the $25 2Peas Gift Certificate. All entries are due by Sunday, November 25th. Winners will be announced here on the blog on November 26th so be sure to check back to see if you've won!

    Thanks for your write-up on this weblog. From my own personal experience, occasionally softening upward a photograph
    might provide the wedding photographer with an amount
    of an creative flare. Oftentimes however, that soft cloud isn't exactly what you had planned and can often times spoil a normally good photo, especially if you intend on enlarging the item.

    I have observed that in cameras, exceptional sensors help
    to focus automatically. These sensors associated with some video cameras change in in the area of contrast, while
    others utilize a beam associated with infra-red (IR)
    light, especially in low light. Higher standards cameras sometimes use a mixture of both models and could have Face
    Priority AF where the digital camera can 'See' your face
    as you concentrate only on that. Many thanks for
    sharing your ideas on this website.
