Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share: Gift-spirations Day 3

Hi All! Welcome to the last day of the Kraft-y Hearts' Gift-spiration Blog Share. Wow! It just occurred to me that this is the last Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share for 2013! Has this year flown by, or what??

So today's project is another easy, lots-of-bang-for-the-buck project that makes a great stocking stuffer or little gift that brings an extra something to the old gift card standby. Anyone up for some Christmas Kisses?

This project is made from treat tubes, washi tape, and a wee bit of paper. Inside are 7 mint truffle Hershey Kisses. (Yep, this could be a seasonal cheap candy fave for the Hill House….) Let's take a look at the project:

I started by wrapping the treat tubes with silver- and juniper-colored washi tape from Close To My Heart's Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape 3-pack. I then used a little Red Shimmer Trim to layer over the juniper tape. I then cut snowflakes at 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 inches from Juniper Cardstock and Sparkle & Shine pattern paper using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and then layered the snowflakes together. I popped up the smaller snowflake in the middle of the larger one with dimensional adhesive. I added Christmas Red Stickles and a red sparkle to the center for bling. The "Christmas Kisses" sentiment is from the Season's Tweetings stamp set. I stamped it in Cranberry Exclusive ink on White Daisy Cardstock and fussy cut it into a little Hershey Kiss-like banner. 

For the top of the treat tube, I cut a 1-inch circle from Sparkle & Shine paper and layered it with another 1 1/4-inch snowflake. I added 7 kisses, and voila, a fun little treat ready to be given away.

Here's another look at the treats.  (Not quite visions of sugar plums, I suppose, but I'd prefer chocolate mints to said plums any day!)

I hope you've enjoyed our gift-spirations. Be sure to stop by and be inspired by all the crafty goodness that Lynn Darda has for you at From My Bungalow.

Have a happy, peaceful holiday season!


  1. These are adorable! I love the way the minty green Kisses look in the tubes with those specatular snowflakes. Great idea to use the Christmas Kisses stamp with it too. Wow, I can't believe it is the last Kraft-y Heart Blog Share of the year. Looking forward to more creative fun next year!

  2. I'd take chocolate over plums any day, too! ;)
    These are really adorable, Kim, and such a great gift idea, because who doesn't like chocolate, right? I am such a fan of peek-a-boo gift packaging like this. Those tubes are so cute and fun. Love how you've decorated them with the snowflakes and washi.
    Hope you and yours have a very wonderful Christmas!
