Retreat Make and Takes (Favors)

Making gifts and party favors is one of my favorite things to do.  I really love how these two favors turned out and I received so much positive feedback from our retreat guests.  Many told me that they would use these ideas for their co-workers, neighbors and friends this Christmas.  That made me feel very happy to know that people liked these ideas enough to reproduce them.  Mission accomplished!

Here's a closer look.

This project is designed to look like the North Pole.  In fact we had a label on the top of it that said just that!  The black topper is made out of a little plastic solo brand sauce container that I bought at a local container store.  The pringles can is wrapped with our Home for Christmas DSP which is the same DSP that the cute hungry Santa who is craving a salty snack came from.

I think of all our projects, this was my most favorite.  First of all you may not be able to tell from the photo but this is a mini can of sprite, so its super small and cute.  This idea could easily be reproduced on a larger scale with a larger can or even on a tall liter sized bottle.  However, this tiny can is so adorable and it seems like the right fit for the very precious reindeer cut from the Home for Christmas DSP.  

I hope that as you prepare for the upcoming Holiday Season that you will find these simple and fun ideas useful and inspiring.
