We Whisk You A Merry Kiss-mas ~ Teacher or Neighbor Gift Idea

“We WHISK you a Merry KISS-MAS”

 Are you looking for a fun idea to give your neighbors or teachers for Christmas… but budget friendly?

Well a few weeks ago at Albertsons I was able to get these Betty Crocker Cookie mixes FREE  with coupons, and the bag of Kisses for $.50 a bag.  So all I had to buy was the whisks from the dollar store, and the red cello bags were also from the dollar store and came in a  package of 30 (look in the party supply section).  The ribbon and craft supplies I already on hand.

First fill the whisk with Hershey’s Kisses.  Do this by pulling the wire open and little filling it up with Hershey’s Kisses.  Then place it in a cello bag, and close at the top with a twist tie.

At the very top of the Betty Crocker cookie mix package is a 1 inch strip that is sealed shut.  Punch 2 holes  in the top about 1/4 inch apart. (Make sure you do it in the top  as to not break the seal of the bag)

Cut your ribbon (I used a 15 inch piece) and thread it into the holes you just punched.

At this point I then tied the whisk filled with kisses to the bag of cookies, then added our mini card  and a tag I made that says

We “Whisk” you a Merry “Kiss-mas”

Then tie a bow…. and you are done…

I printed these tags off the computer using Open Office on my computer, then punched out a scalloped tag in green with a craft punch.  The red “Kiss-mas” tag was printed at the end and put on top… only after I realized I miss spelled “Kiss-mass”…..Oops 🙂

The whole project took about an hour and a half to make 12 bags and each bag cost me about $1.25 …. ahh the power of coupons 🙂

My kids are excited to give these as a  fun little gift.
