Ornament Chocolate Holders

Hi there, here are some holiday gifts I made for some colleagues & family.

I got this idea from Renee Cooper who was the Customer Spotlight in the Sept 13th Cricut Chirp newsletter. She made these really cool pumpkin crates using the ice cream cone cut from Sweet Tooth Boxes and I thought this cut would make great ornament crates.

I made a whole bunch so there's a lot of pictures ahead. At the end of this post are the instructions and materials I used:

I filled them with Mini Hershey Kisses or Dove Dark Chocolates.

For a family member I put a gift card in it by standing it up in the chocolates.

Goody mix:
-Cardstock: White Glitter, Brown Glitter, Bazzill Brown T9-943, Bazzill Basics Rain Forest

Here's some more holiday gift tags I made a couple friends to use when they give their very yummy holiday treats to family and friends. This time I stamped them on a 3" circle piece of white card stock and adhered them to some ornament shaped card stock which I used George and Basic Shapes to create using 1” and 3 ½” circles and a 1” x 1 ¼” rectangle:

Baking Ingredients:
-Cardstock: Bazzill Brown T9-943
-Patterned Paper: Bazzill Basics Glazed Christmas
