30 Days of Gift Making.. Day 7!

Welcome Everyone to day 7 of the 30 Days of Gift Making blog hop!


I decided to make little gift boxes filled with M&M sticks for some of my friends for Christmas. This gift box is cut at 5 1/2 inches from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more.


This tag is also cut from Tags Bags Boxes and More. The snowflakes are cut from Winter Woodlands. I used my new Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the snowflakes.


Close up of the snowflakes tied to the M&M sticks. I got the bags for the M&M sticks from clearbags.com. They are 1x8 inches. I've been making lots of M&M sticks for Craft Fairs. My husband actually stuffs the M&M's for me and always runs out of yellow's and brown's first. So what do we do with the remaining M&M's? I have him make solid colored sticks knowing I would figure out something for them. Aren't the blue ones just perfect for this project? I like them anyways :)

Thanks for stoping by today! Make sure to check out Martha tomorrow for day 8!
