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
-Patterned Paper: Bazzill Basics Glazed Christmas, DCWV Glitter Christmas Stack 2007, Debbie Mumm Holiday 2008, SEi Alpine Frost, My Mind’s Eye Festive & Frost Signature Christmas Short Stack with Glitter, , DCWV Glitter Christmas Stack 2008
