25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts- Day 12, 12 days of goodies tin

I love the idea of this gift, mostly because I would love 12 days of Christmas candy! You can do so much with this little gift, and there are so many different ways you can make it!

For this project, I used the following supplies;

Metal lunchbox
tissue paper
scrapbook paper or stickers
tacky tape
and some yummy candy!!

I started by cutting the tissue paper into squares and tying up 12 pieces of candy. I made some numbered tags for the candy and tied them up with some ribbon. I alternated between white and red tissue paper when I put them inside the lunchbox. If you can't find a lunchbox like this one, then you can always just use a Christmas tin or box. If your box is a little too deep for your candy, just use some shredded paper to fill it up a little bit. You can make your own candy, but you may need to use wax paper to keep the tissue paper from getting greasy looking.

I used some Dove peppermint bark candy (oh so yummy) to wrap up, and I just had to have a piece while I was working on this. How appropriate was this wrapper?

After I put the candy inside, I used a Santa gift tag to put on the outside, along with some letters that I cut out with my Cricut. You can always use stickers here. I also added a ribbon along the bottom.

After you finished decorating the outside, you're all done!

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a Michael's gift card! Happy holiday crafting!!
