THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES NO.5

Package No.5 from The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages was inspired by my love of personalizing gifts and edible treats. There are many mediums you can use when creating personalized gift tags, such as paper, fabric, and clay, but why not use a sweet treat like a caramel? I don't know anyone who wouldn't love to receive a personalized letter gift tag made of candy.

For this letter gift tag I used a piece of caramel and a mini letter cookie cutter, but you can use any semi-hard chewy candy. Just make sure to have extra candies as somehow they tend to disappear while you are making the letter tags, or at least they do when I'm making them.

For this package I cut out the first letter of the recipient's name, but you could cut out all the letters to spell out a person's name.

THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES

I adore packaging gifts and since it is officially the month of gift-giving I thought I would share some gift wrapping ideas and projects. The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages will provide you with inspiration to create your own handmade packages. I will also be sharing some of my favorite sources for packaging supplies. Stay tuned for the first packaging project tomorrow. In the meantime see more of my packaging projects here.
