Martha Boxes

Happy Sunday everyone!
This weekend is flying by and I still have quite a few things to get done before next weekend when our company arrives!
Yesterday I think I scored BIG TIME at Michael's on these Martha boxes. They are regular 9.95 for a pack of six here in Canada and were on clearance for 1.50! YAH! I bought them ALL! I had been making my own boxes as you may recall but for that price....I couldn't beat it!
Chloe and I made some of these peppermint cookie sticks. I had wanted to use those long pretzels but couldn't find them anywhere. Oh well...back up plan! We used some long Italian cookies instead. I brushed melted white chocolate on them and then rolled them in crushed candy canes. We let them set for about an hour while we stamped the boxes.
Pretty quick and simple little gift idea.
Chloe has curling this afternoon and then a little Christmas party too! I am kind of hoping that Brian will take her and I can stay home to get a few things done around here.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
