Sweet Favors

There are many ways you can greet or send your guests off that are simple but make them feel extra special.

Christmas crackers are a time honored festive tradition.
 
Flowers are always Centsational!
 

Of course the fail safe collection of sweets is always appreciated too.
 


I have a tiny holiday table this year so I decided to create something truly crafty. It began when I discovered a sack full of dirty, rusty boxes at the thrift store. (This image was taken after they were cleaned and sanded.)

The boxes were painted in various colors and then the edges were lightly distressed. The front of the boxes were mod podged with various holiday images.



No two were alike.

The interiors contained a bit of scrapbook paper and a vintage treasure that corresponded with the image on the front of the box.

These boxes are so cute. I love them! Great job using a thrift store cast-off and turning it into a little treasure. My favorite thing to do!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting, too!
