Good Things come in Pretty Packages!

Outside my window the sky is the colour of ice and nearly all of the leaves have fluttered off their branches. It won't be long before the ground is covered in a layer of white, fluffy snow or before the street lamps that line my street are decorated with pine boughs and ribbons. Now, in these brief but relatively quiet weeks before the holiday hullabaloo, is the time to start preparing for the holidays: writing out your shopping lists, guest lists, greeting-card lists and menu planning all begin in earnest this month. The holiday packaging by Martha Stewart Crafts is always the perfect place to start for me and this year they have even more beautiful treat bags to fill with your own sweet confections for loved-ones, friends and colleagues. Below are some examples. All are now available at Michael's stores across the U.S. and Canada.
Sweet treats deserve a sweet wrapping, do they not? Snowflake Cellophane Treat Bags add a festive and wintery touch to special holiday treats. The package contains six cellophane bags; six paper inserts; six labels and six ribbons. 
Frost your holiday treats with wintery elegance with these die-cut treat boxes. Wrap your homemade treats in festive, holiday-inspired wrapping that will be sure to delight. The package contains six paper treat cones; six tags and six pieces of ribbon.   
The decorative winter tree treat boxes transform homemade treats into festive party favors or holiday gifts. Such a cute and shapely design! The package contains six boxes; six adhesive labels; six pieces of ribbon and 36 sheets of tissue paper.

I love this heavy-duty paper trimmer and have always wanted one for my home office. You can cut up to three sheets of 12x12 cardstock at once! Features include a paper lock that holds sheets in place for straight, accurate cuts; an alignment guide for repetitive cutting; gridlines and popular card-size references for easy measuring; and a finger guard and handle lock for added safety. Sleek and lightweight, this trimmer is a perfect addition to any craft room or office.

Yesterday I got to see the whole collection at JoAnn's Fabrics and especially love the snowflake boxes. Very pretty! Oh, the ideas just keep coming...


Lucky you, Cyndi! I have an example of each of the products shown and I'm so happy about that! Now... who gets what?!

Hi Andrew, beautiful product from Martha Stewart Crafts. I wish they have her products in a shop here in London. I was able to find on Amazon UK the heavy duty paper trimmer and some items great to order. Thank you.
