Eat Drink & Be Merry!

Hello, are you all excited already? just 1x time sleeping and than Santa Claus is here... well at least in Germany. Today i would like to show you something that you can make within like 30 minutes - perfect for little gifts you might need for your neighbor or acquaintances just before Christmas. Happens each year to me.. one kind soul drops a little something for us in the mailbox and i have NOTHING prepared for them in return and i need something fast :-)
This set is for a lady down the street who has 2 little boys... i think they will love the candy canes. I actually might add a tin of Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix with the canes.. just makes it probably look more "finished" :-)
Grocery store here i come hahaha
On the Whiff Of Joy Inspiration blog you can find more photos how i have made the candy bag - if you like to check it out? it can be found here
Stamps : Any Whiff Of Joy Image, Sentiments
Embellishments: Glue, Stampin up "Top Note" Die, Nestabilites, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, Glue, Buttons, wide Ribbon, Hemp strings, Chalk (Cream Brown) ink, Candy, clear candy bag, Schockwang tape, 1 piece of Designer paper cut with Top Note, 1 piece of white paper cut with Top Note die
