The Christmas baking in this house has not happened, so no fabulous little trays of cookies for my neighbors! But I did tuck a package of my most favorite cookies - called Stroopwafels or Carmel Cookie Waffles - into this box for our neighbors across the street. Love those sweet things! They are one of the things I used to order from a place in Montana, when we lived in Colorado. I happily found some fabulous ones sold in Minnesota, land of the nordics where you can also buy lefse at Sam's Club. The cookies are from Holland though. (The store in Montana makes their own fresh version of these Dutch treats every day.)
I also added a tin of wrapped Hershey nuggets and a couple of Tracer's Play-Dough stacks. The candy canes are tied to the top of the box with a strip of ribbon. They are wrapped with a little tag of the designer series paper, punched with the Slit Punch to slide the candy cane through. I pulled the snowman box out of my Christmas stash and love that the colors on it are matching the Wintergreen designer series paper.
This other little bag is for another neighbor and includes a Play-Dough stack for their little boy and a few treats, as well. I hung a couple of candy canes onto the ribbon tie on my way out the door, too.
It's always so easy to coordinate a gift set with Stampin' Up's papers - I love that I can grab some card stock, ribbon and ink that matches the paper I am using. Easy, Peasy - just the way I like it!
