One of my favorite sections in this issue is the treat containers section. I just love baking and making sweets in the kitchen for my friends.

Here are a few of my favorites:

First, we have the cute container you find on the cover of this issue. To create that cute paper top, simply cut a circle of patterned paper, mist, and tie to top of jar with twine! It adds the perfect homey touch.

This cute container is pretty simple too, that is if you have the Candy Box Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers! Just add some ribbon and a tag to the box, and you have a cute gift you won’t want to give away.

    The crafty thing I do for the holidays is make over 150 Christmas cards to send to family and friends all over the country. I usually go into panic mode in November when I realize that I have to get them all done and mailed by the middle of December. I love the holiday edition mags because they never go out of style and can provide inspiration for years to come. Thanks for the chance to win. :D
