Warm and Yummy Gift Set

This set is destined for my friend Deena. It's full of yummy things packaged in a warm and cozy style using PTI's Holiday Treats set. The colors are SU's close to cocoa and bravo burgundy, and PTI's vintage cream.

The card (on right above) is a 4.25" square designed to mimic the toppers below. I made the box (on left above and close-up below) specifically to fit the Tazo tea bags, but if boxes aren't your thing, you could use a cello bag and topper.

Simplicity Tip: The easiest way to learn how to make boxes is to get a template off the Internet. There are lots of free ones you can use to figure out the basics. Once you've made a few boxes using templates, you'll see how easy it is to customize them for whatever size you need. Seriously. Easy! And buy a Scor-Pal if you don't already have one. Those things are DA BOMB. You KNOW you deserve one!

The rest of the goodies are packaged in cello bags (the Russian Tea is in small zip bags that hold a single serving each). My friend loves tea and chocolate and shortbread, so this is the perfect set for her.

Clean and simple packaging, plus tasty treats. I love Christmas!
