festive treat boxes are my fave

December 14, 2011

Aluminum foil or plastic wrap boxes are the perfect shape for a row of packaged treats.

To make your own you’ll need:
– empty aluminum foil boxes (buy them at the dollar store)
– wrapping paper
– tissue paper
– round metal brads
– twine

Cut off the sharp edge from the boxes so nobody gets hurt. Wrap all the way around with holiday paper and line the inside with tissue. Fill with treat of choice like tangerines, whoopie pies, or meringues. Line up one brad on the lid and another one on the front of the box and poke and attach. Tie closed with twine or hemp cord. Stuff yourself with any leftover treats before your family know they exist.

Thanks to Lexy for wrapping these so the corners laid flat.
