Christmas Neighbor Gift

We have been working on some handmade gifts for friends and family this week.  We made this cute gift for our neighbors out of things that we had already here at home.  It can be filled with cookies and candy and left hanging on their front door knob.

We made it with a leftover pie tin from Thanksgiving (all washed out of  course) and some scrapbook paper and stickets I had leftover from making Christian's Advent calender.

We cut out a circle of scrapbook paper that fit the inside of the tin and then glued it on.  Next we cut a half circle of cardstock and glued that to the edges of the pie tin to form a pocket.  Tyler decorated it with more scrapbook paper and some stickers.  I then punched two holes at the top of the tin and ran a ribbon through and tied a bow.    The last thing we did was cut a small circle of scrapbook paper to make the gift tag.  I punched another hole in the top of tin and attached the tag with a ribbon.

Now we just need to fill them with goodies and hang them on the doorknobs of our neighbors!

That's beautiful! Make sure it isn't windy on the day you pick!

That's a great idea! (As usual!). We're doing 12 Days of Christmas Giving and I think I might have to pinch your idea for leaving treats for the neighbors.

BTW, love all the pictures in your previous post.
