S’mores Gift Box with Expressionery Wraps. I recently went to visit my aunt, and I knew I would be bringing her a S’mores Gift Box. She loves my homemade marshmallows, but they are hard to mail in the Florida heat. She had mentioned before that she melted marshmallows in the microwave, since she doesn’t have a fire pit, so I grabbed a few Sterno Cans from the Dollar Tree for her to roast her marshmallows with. Originally, I had planned to make a cute little box, and add some various chocolate candies. But, Laura Kelly Designs and Expressionery invited me to participate in Expressionery Wraps, using gifts and wrapping from World Market. How could I say no, right?
We decided to go to the World Market across the state, near my aunt, to shop for a box, some candies, and other goodies to add to the gift. My husband saw these fabulous Handmade Paper Gift Boxes, and we both knew that it was perfect for my aunt. I love packaging that can be reused after the gift has been given. I picked out some matching paper shreds for the bottom of the box, as well as a large cello bag and ribbon to wrap the box in.
I was like a kid in a candy store in World Market, happily wandering the aisles, filling my cart full of goodies for my aunt, my kids, and my house! I found a gorgeous bracelet for my aunt, and put it in a smaller gift box that matched the larger box. I also found lots of fun chocolate treats, and even some cookies to use instead of graham crackers! I found a few other treats to add to the box, and took my goodies back to our hotel before we met up with my aunt.
I used a fun custom stamp from Expressionery on craft paper punches and tied them to cello bags of homemade marshmallows. I love this stamp! It is so perfect for all of the homemade treats I make, and I cannot wait to use it again!
I carefully placed graham crackers, the cookies, chocolates, marshmallows, and other goodies in the larger box. Then I wrapped it all in the large cello bag, and tied it with pretty ribbon.
My aunt was so thrilled with her gift box!
