Gift Box Treats - Goodie Box Part 2 of 2

 
 
Making Cork Coasters:
Corks (you can get a huge bag full from any Specs, just ask the cashier)
Glue Sticks
Hot Glue Gun
 
For the Pet Owners:
Milk Bones
  
Quick & Easy Sugar Cookies:
Sugar Cookie Mix - Costco
Green Food Dye
Candy Canes 

 Once you have the tools and material for assembling, these coasters are a cinch! Its just hot gluing.
4 coasters for each set and we are almost done with this gift box!
 
Note: You can get a Huge Bag of Corks from any Specs Store. Just Ask the Cashier!

 
Make sure by testing a wine glass on top of the finished coaster that you made. It needs to sit completely flat. Sometimes while gluing you think it flat but really you did a half fast job bc lets face it its prolly 1:30 am and you just want to finish it and go to sleep. So make sure its flat people!
 
 
 
Quick & Easy Sugar Cookies:
Sugar Cookie Mix - Costco
Green Food Dye
Candy Canes 
 
I pretty much followed directions on the box and mixed it with green food dye. After the cookies came out of the oven I put the crushed candy canes on top of them! Easy!
 
 
For the Pet Owners:
Milk Bones
 
So finally what you have all been waiting for that took 2 posts to do! Here is what the inside of the gift box looks like!
 
 Dog Treats for people who have furbaby's, with the pretzels & coasters you made all wrapped in pretty gold ribbon. These were an absolute HIT! Everyone loved  them. I am making these every year! Of course change it up a bit. It makes gift giving easier, plus how many Christmas ties do you have to keep giving before you waste your money. When they open these gifts and see these goodies their faces light up.
 
Thank you for reading and please share!! Stay Tuned for my next blog post: See how I decorated my Christmas Tree!
