homemade with holiday cheer

One of my favourite things to give as gifts for the holidays is homemade baked treats.   Some of the treats I did last year were hot chocolate squares with marshmallows found here, biscotti and tea found here and a chocolate chip cookie mix found here.  This year, I went traditional with my banana walnut bread. It is healthy (no chocolates involved!) and very easy to make, thus giving me more time to work on my cute packaging.

Here is a sample of one of them.   

I found this genius of a box at my local Winners store and I knew immediately that I will have to make bread this year.  Just mix your batter, pour on the box, pop in the oven and wait for it to be done.   Because the packaging is already cute, all I needed were clear FDA-approved bags and tags to match.

Here is a close up of the tags.  I used Papertrey’s Holiday Treats  and Bells and Bough sets, Tag Sale die and Kraft cardstock.  The ribbons were from Michael’s.

And here is my first batch all together.  I tucked in a packet of tea at the back to enjoy with the bread.

Thanks for stopping by!
