You know that Bible verse, “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.” Well, I like to take that and apply it with almost everything I give or make.
Because trust me, I would like nothing more than to receive something wrapped in
Oh, let’s not forget about what’s inside, a fresh baked Chocolate Croissant. Oh my. I truly love to give gifts. I love to give semi homemade gifts or baked goods as gifts. They’re easy, affordable and I can always rely on my local grocery store to have something that’s perfect to give.
As we all know, life gets busy! When it does, I know I can always pick up something in the bakery from my favorite grocery store and give a semi-homemade gift and put my focus on quick, easy, beautifully wrapped packages to give to my friends.
I love having my focus on pink…gold…sequins…glitter…and chocolate!
Wish I could do that everyday! ;)
There’s also the saying, “It’s better to give than to receive” ~ I truly believe that. I love giving, and I truly love putting effort into making something that is truly unique for the receiver of the gift. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money for that matter, I can always rely on my scraps that I have around the house. There’s 3 new moms in our neighborhood and if you’ve been a follower for a while, than you know I love to give gifts to new Moms. They are so deserving of something extra special. Don’t you think???
So I went to my favorite grocery store & purchased some sweet treats, picked up a few pastry boxes, and then started decorating the boxes with a simple Valentine’s theme.
One of my favorite things, especially this time of year is to use gold dipped feathers to accessorize a treat box. Just add some gold paint & sprinkle gold glitter while wet & allow to dry.
Then I used scraps of ribbon & sequins trim, pink paper cut in circles, gold numbers & letters, along with clear plastic bags to make the packaging creative & festive for Valentine’s!
We happen to have a party store about a mile from our house. They’re a perfect place to find various size boxes, paper doilies and anything else you need to wrap a fun package. Adding some store bought supplies to what I had on hand with my scraps I was able to make a festive Valentine’s treat box for our neighbors!
As for the Chocolate Croissant??? Well, you know I had to buy one for myself! The amazing flakes from layers of pastry & butter woven in the dough with delicious dark chocolate nestled in the middle, I couldn’t resist! I have zero will power! But the taste…was incredible and they truly were magnifique!
