Neighbor Treat Canisters

We moved into our new house this year, and have been getting to know the neighbors.  What’s a better way to make friends than by sharing delicious treats, I always say.  This year I hope to share some of my Christmas baking with our neighbors, and this Treat Canister is a cute way to transport them.

To make Neighbor Treat Canisters, you will need:
treat canister (from Target)
PSA stamps and inks
address stamp
scrapbook paper (like Martha Stewart’s Paper Pad)
Christmas cookies (like my Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbread Cookies)
stamped cookie carrier
I found these really cute paint can-like canisters in the dollar section at Target.  They have a little handle and come in Christmas red and green.  To make the canister  look even more festive, I stamped the craft paper I used to wrap up the cookies using my red and green ink and the Treeo and new Mixed Holiday stamp packs from PSA Essentials.

I used our customized address stamp to add our name and address to the top of the canister.  I cut some circles out of scrapbook paper and then added some flourishes with a gold pen.
