Holiday treats

I have a habit of making some kind of little gift for every person on the staff at my kids' elementary school. We love their school so much, and after four years there, the girls and I have worked with so many people that it's impossible to be selective in who we give to, so I make a whole bunch of something cool but relatively easy. Here's this year's treat.

These little boxes are a snap to make. Each takes a half sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock, plus embellishments. While surveying my stash, I found that I had hoarded three full packs of last year's retired Christmas paper, Dashing, from Stampin' Up! So that made my decision of what paper to use very easy. The stamps are from 2008 Holiday Tag Collection.

Here's the whole basket of treats, ready to go. There are eighty of the little boxes. Each box contains ten Hershey Kisses. The best part is going to the school and stuffing everyone's mailboxes!
