Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout November and December, some of my favorite blogging friends will be stopping by Positively Splendid to share some of their best holiday ideas in the third annual Swell Noël series. You can stay up-to-date on all of the fantastic ideas shared throughout the series by following the Swell Noël 2013 Pinterest board, and also by following the #SwellNoel hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram. Aimée and Bettijo from Paging Supermom are here with a delicious edible gift idea that is sure to add some fun to recipients’ holiday desserts!
Hello! It’s Aimée and Bettijo from Paging Supermom, and we are so excited to be here today to share this fun Christmas gift idea and free printable!
These fun bottles of Peppermint Snowflakes are super easy to make. Whip up a bunch to give to all your neighbors and friends. All you need is candy canes, glass sifter bottles and our free printable labels.
TO MAKE: Crush up candy canes — we used four to fill our bottle. Make your candy cane bits small enough to fit easily through the holes on the sifter insert that comes with your bottles. Fill the crushed candy cane into jars and cap. Download and print our free Peppermint Snowflake label template onto sticker paper. Cut labels down to size and adhere to filled jars. Be sure jars are clean and free from any candy cane dust which could cause unsightly bubbles in your label. If desired, add an official-looking, striped seal to your bottles. Simply print our striped pattern (found on page 2 of the template) on sticker paper and cut into strips.
TO USE: These festive Peppermint Snowflakes are perfect for topping hot chocolate and other holiday treats. Just sprinkle on and enjoy!
