PTI Blog Hop





Hello everyone! How fast the last ten days have gone. It's seems like we were just busy with the PTI release party and anxiously awaiting our orders. Then suddenly here is Blog Hop night. I was so certain I would have this post ready in advance. Ha! I made these favor boxes with the Tucked Away Timeless Template this afternoon.



I plan to make these favors for Christmas Day when my husband's family gathers at our house for dinner. Each Christmas, I make cookies, a tradition which began when I was a little girl. It just wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't make cookies. One of the favorites are bite size nut wafers. A few cookies in these boxes will be the perfect favors for everyone!
I won't get into Christmas planning mode for a few more weeks. I know Christmas decorations have been in some stores since July. And most stores will be in full Christmas mode after Halloween. However, I need the calendar to be a little closer to Thanksgiving before I pull out the Christmas-to-do list. When do you start preparing for the holidays?
I'm looking forward to checking out all the blogs tonight for some great holiday ideas.

  13. I was thinking cookies? This template is teeny. But sounds like what you are making is smallish so that would work. The berries and ribbons are simply beautiful - -what a lovely presentation this will be.
