Holiday Guests Treat Baskets

Hi everyone!  Shellye here today with a quick and easy idea for those guests who drop by during the holidays!

I have filled a small box made from Santa Express paper with four treat baskets, but you 
can make a few extra for refilling.  

For each of the treat baskets I started with a 6" circle.  
Score each circle at the 2" and 4" mark; turn and repeat, making sure to keep the lines even.

Cut along the four vertical score lines just up to the intersecting line.  Fold flaps and glue in place.  These can also be cut from a square piece of 6X6 paper, but I really liked the curved edge created by using the circle shape.


For the handles I've used tinsel garland.  Punch two holes in the sides and string through.  You can also try pipe cleaners, ribbon or wire.  Tie on a whimsical bow, add a tag from the Christmas Tags Craft Kit and finish off with a hand-tied button.

I made a simple box by cutting a 8.5" X 8.5" swatch of paper and then scoring at 2" and 6.5" twice by turning the paper.  Fold in on the score lines, cut a flap at each corner and glue in place.  


Embellish the front of the box with any of the cute stickers from Santa's Express and don't forget to add some of the sparkly Sprinkles.  
Sit the goody filled treat baskets out so that visiting guests can grab one before they head home.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!
