Hi friends! Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing quick, easy and inexpensive cards and gifts that you can make for friends, coworkers or your kids classmates this holiday season. These small favors can show that you care without breaking the bank. They are also quick and easy projects you can batch up in an evening. These candy wreath ornaments are great for folks with a sweet tooth but feel free to use glitter, beads or sequins to make a permanent shaker card with this method. You can also adapt this idea to make a keepsake photo ornament by placing a photo behind the window and omitting the treat cup. This would be a lovely project to do with a classroom as parent or grandparent gifts. As always you are encouraged to share these projects with your community and teach others as I am teaching you. You can even pass this along to any teacher or scout leader you know.

Intro: These beautiful gift ornaments hold sweet treats! They can also be used as gift toppers.
- Fold a piece of heavyweight cardstock in half the long way. Then take a 3 ½” circle die and cut circles allowing the edge of the die to hang over the fold so the circles stay hinged together.
- Using a die the same size as your treat cup cut a window on one of the attached circles to make the from of the ornament.
- Stamp a greeting on the back (solid part)of the ornament and stamp a wreath around the hole in the front. Let ink dry and flip over the ornament.
- Attach a loop of ribbon to the inside of the ornament using hot glue. Fill the treat cup with candy, remove adhesive liner and place in ornament hole. Add more hot glue the the ornament edges and press closed.
Let’s spread dome cheer friends! Happy crafting!
