I am so excited! This is the first year that I am participating in the Handmade Gift Exchange hosted by Craftaholics Anonymous. The idea is that you get paired with someone else who you make a gift for. You then get a gift back.
Today, I am going to share the gift that I made for my partner!
My partner stated that she really liked desert and sweets so I start off by making her my favorite Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies. The cookies are full of chocolaty goodness, but with a kick from cayenne pepper. Yum! I then drizzle melted chocolate on top. These are crunchy and perfect with a warm glass of milk…and I don’t even like milk.
I put my yummy cookies into a sage and white chevron snack bag, closed it with washi tape, and added a fun tag with bakers twine, which of course all came from Pick Your Plum.
Next I added a holiday crackers filled with lots of fun fillers!
Just like the ones from this post.
My partner is also a huge pig lover so I added a pig bookmark.
Aren’t they so cute? The pigs came from the Lawn Fawn Critters on the Farm set.
Remember those cute surprise vials I made? Well of course I had to make one for my partner. I use a pink present from Stamp Delights, since my partner loves bright colors. I also added a hook to the top so she could make it into a ornament or necklace.
Finally, I created a burlap stocking with red iron on vinyl. I thought it would be a perfect way to send all the fun small gifts to my partner!
Have you ever done a gift exchange? So far it seems super fun!
