Peppermint Patty Boxes

Hello & Happy Thursday!

The week is moving along pretty quick!
I am up early this morning with Shawn because I have a list a mile long of things to get wrapped up today! My Holiday Hoopla Stamp Day w Friends is 2 days away and I wish I could say that I was ready! My kits are ready but that's about it!

My card lady called me twice this week to give me card orders and I have been working feverishly to get them done so I can deliver it to her over the weekend. 
I know I am pushing myself thin but after this weekend I can then start focusing on my own Christmas and getting my cards addressed and doing some shopping!
I will get there, eventually!

So, today I have a sweet Christmas treat to share.
I know not many people are fans of the York Peppermint Patties but I just love them!
My Peppermint Patty treats usually always sell so that is why I continue to make them.

I don't usually like to make candy treats ahead because I like to see how I can match up some papers to the wrappers on the treats. The York Peppermint Patties have red & green wrappers this year with snowflakes on. I found 3 sheets of this snowflake paper in my stash and used it because it matched so nicely! I took 2 peppermints of each color and stacked them inside the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes that Stampin Up carries. I then cut my paper 2 x 10. Scored each one at 2, 4, 6 & 8. Gave them a nice crease with the bone folder and wrapped them around the box. I found in my stash some red clothes pins and a variety of red buttons. I used retired twine to loop thru my buttons and glued them on under my sentiment panel. The sentiment comes from an old Hero Arts set. I use this set quite often during the holidays because it is perfect sized and a nice font.

Project Details:

Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Real Red
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Love Nicole Paper (AC Moore)
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Circle Layering Framelits, Clothes Pins & Buttons from stash, Twine (retired), Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I had 3 bags of the candy but only made 10 treat holders.
I kept one bag to put in my candy tray for home!
Yes, out of all the treats I make, the York Peppermint Patties are my favorites!

Do you have a favorite candy for Christmas?

My thoughts today...

Thanks for visiting & enjoy your day!

YUM YUM YUM! I am right there with you on the peppermint all-time favorite candy! And John doesn't like them so they're all for MEEEEE! Well, I do share them with Cass & Dana! These little treat holders are just adorable! What a great idea, and with the treat boxes already made, they look like they are quick and easy. I LOVE the sentiment...a beautiful font too!

I too love peppermint patties and these treat boxes are so cute! They look like little milk cartons and I love the button and clothespin closures! Too cute! Just breathe and I know you'll get everything done you expect to. It's such a stressful time of year but your treats look wonderful and I know they'll be enjoyed :) Stay warm!
