hand-made paper gifts!

I can't remember where I saw these adorable hand-made gifts for the first time. 

The ones that I saw were hearts made of pink crepe paper, and filled with pink and white candies. They were for a baby girl baby shower. They were darling! Each had a little note that read "Thank you for coming!"

So when I came across these Fall floral tin liners (seen above), I thought I would make some for my dearest friends. 

A little something to let them know how grateful I am for their friendships. A sweet Thanksgiving token, if you may.

I filled my paper gifts with a variety of Fall themed Salt Water Taffies, and included a small paper listing their flavors.

Here are the supplies that I used for this SIMPLE project . . . 

floral tin liners
Salt Water Taffies
jute rope
gift tags
hole puncher
seasonal package topper
sewing machine & thread

Here's how . . .

Sew 2 sheets of paper together, leave a 2-inch gap so that you can fill it with candy.
~   ~   ~
Fill with desired amount of candy and/or personal note.  
~   ~   ~
Sew 2-inch gap closed. Cut off excess pieces of thread.  
~   ~   ~
Punch two holes approximately 1/4 apart, and then thread your rope or ribbon.

Attach your gift tag and adornment. 
You're finished!

How fun and simple was that!!

The possibilities are endless! 

Imagine festive holiday tin liners ~ or scrapbook paper ~ filled with candied ribbons and adorned with jingle bells for Christmas! Or a pumpkin shape cut out of brown paper bags, and then filled with candy corns! 

A darling party favor for any shower . . . or "just because."

LET'S STAY in touch!
