Gingerbread Treat Box

Hey everyone!! I have been wanting to make some little treat gifts for people for a while, but have always had a littel problem... I have ZERO will power, and when I get these treats into my home, they don't last long enough to make a project with... If you're friends with me on Facebook, you may know my baby has been showing symptoms of a dairy allergy. Since I'm nursing her, it means I've had to cut ALL dairy out of my diet - including chocolate! This means that chocolate now lasts in my house!! Hooray! :) 

I've had these candy stamps from Jaded Blossom for a while now, but as I said before, there has never been candy to use them with! 


I found this super cute little gingerbread house treat holder in the Silhouette store and knew it would work great for some little chocolate nuggets. 


First I used some Christmas cardstock to wrap my chocolates in, then I cut a bunch of little white circles with my cameo that I could stamp onto. Once I had all the circles stamped with my candy stamps, I glued them onto the chocolates. 


I used some Trendy Twine to wrap around my wreath on the door, then added a bow.  I also added some red satin ribbon to tie the treat box up. My treat box is big enough to fit 6 little nuggets in but of course you can make it larger to fit more. 

I'm linking this project up over at the monthly challenge at Jaded Blossom, then heading over to Great Grandma's house so the girls can give her this surprise! 

Have a great day and make sure to come back tomorrow for  Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT day!!

Candace your little gingerbread house is so very cute! I love the wreath on the door -what a fabulous touch! I sure hope your little does ok with the dairy issues and you can have some chocolate again very soon. I'm not sure that I could make it through the stress of the holidays without my daily dose of chocolate...or my nightly dose for that matter!
