Altered Cheese Box Gifts

Hello Christmas Elves and Crafters.  It's major project time at my house.  Caution:  This is a heavy photo post.  It's really a record in my gift giving history so I can look back on this next year and remember what I did!!!


Aren't these snowmen cute!  These are Laughing Cow Cheese Boxes.  Yeah, I know!!!  If you follow me you know I do a lot of projects with these babies.  I had to thin my collection so I decided to make a bunch of these to give away at work filled with candy.

 The most I have is two of any one design.  A couple I have only one.  I just had a blast making these.  I included a picture of all of them in a basket.  This is how I will bring them to work when it is time to hand them out.  I'll look like Little Red Riding Hood won't I....lol

 They have all been filled with my favorite candy and each box has been placed in a cello bag.  They look so festive sitting in the basket.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly and that you are enjoying this very special time of year.  See you soon.  Happy Crafting.

so Precious, Carol, each one so darling, that I cannot decide which I look best? the elegant toppers? or the sweet toppers? I've never heard of that cheese before - do the containers retain any odor that you have to remove? Very clever idea, Carol. love, de

I've been a busy little crafter elf making gift after gift for the holidays at my house, too, Carol. Still so much left to do, but it's all so much fun! I love the vision of you being little Red Riding Hood passing out your gifts at work! I think that your cheese box gifts would be a fabulous way to gift some holiday treats and candy. Yay for you!
