Christmas party favors

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was a full house and very nice, except for the fact that a few of us had bad colds, myself with a 2 degree temperature. But it was still very nice. :)

You've already seen some of the favors I made for my family in early earlier posts but here are the last 4 that I had to make.

The 1st three were made using Regina's Candy Box cutting file from her store The Cutting Café. This box is PERFECT for holding 12 mini Hershey bars. One I made was for my darling SIL who is a chocoaholic so this was a perfect one for her. The 2nd one was for my soon-to-be wonderful mother-in-law who loves mint chocolate and luckily for me this year Hershey came out with mint mini Hershey bars, including white chocolate! And 3rd one was made for my great manager.

And since this holds 12 mini Hershey bars I decided to go with the Twelve Days of Christmas Theme...Regina being as creative and smart as she is, she included in this set the perfect measured rectangles to make your own wrapper for each chocolate bar.

So here are the ones using the Candy Box and the paper is from K&Company:




I love this paper from SEI from their Alpine Frost collection:


Originally I was going to put everyone's names on the favors but I decided at last minute to do place cards.

I got these so too cute ornament place card holders from Michaels for only $1/pair, are they not gorgeous?!?:




This one I filled with Hershey's mint truffle kisses. I also used Regina's Christmas Circle printable stamps for the tag. This gorgeous paper is from K&Company.


This favor I made using Regina's Long Window cutting file from her store The Cutting Café.

This one was for my brother being the coffee junkie that he is (as well as myself):


This stamp is from one of my favorite stamp sets...CTMH Coffee Shop and I got to use my prismacolor pencils (PC946 Dark Brown & PC911 Olive Green) and the gamsol technique:


Here's another stamp I fell in love with this season from Inkadinkadoo's Snowflake Trail set:


TFL and happy holidays!
