Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Christmas Candy Gifts

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello creative friends! Welcome to a brand new Studio Monday with Nina-Marie tutorial!

With Christmas coming, many of us crafters enjoy making handmade gifts for friends and family… and you can never go wrong with gifting a sweet treat! From chocolate and protein bars, to mints and mini cookies, these pillow boxes are the perfect way to give something tasty during the holidays!

For all of these cute pouches, I used the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board. I used patterned papers from Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug, plus the darling Santa Pup and Santa Cat Picture Book dies from Simon!

The fun thing about creating these adorable pillow boxes, is that you can customize the size of the box by varying the height of the paper! This lets you make boxes tall enough for a full chocolate or protein bar; or you can create something a bit shorter, perfect for mints and small treats.

Be sure to watch the video below to see how easy these candy pillow boxes are to make! These would be perfect for stocking stuffers, gifts or even for kids to create for friends at school!

I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and are inspired to make some of these too! Thanks for tuning in!
