{personalized treat containers}

I was at Target (my favorite store--I could live there) when I had an epiphany. I was buying all new Gladware (LOVE that stuff!), and pondering all my options, when I suddenly knew exactly what I could do with them. Even better? The holiday version with the red lids was perfect for what I had in mind.
I love to give treats to my friends/neighbors every Christmas, and this is such a fun and easy way to dress up a regular container. And who doesn't love something personalized?

Personalized Treat Containers


-Gladware container, any size (holiday ones with the red lids are best)
-scrapbook paper, desired embellishments
-mod podge, foam brush


-Trace the inside of the lid onto a piece of white paper, to make a template. You want it to fit in the center of the lid, not over the raised edges. It may need a little adjusting to get it just right, but I kept placing it in the center of the lid to figure out where I needed to make any changes.
-Trace the template onto scrapbook paper.
-Embellish as desired.
-Using the foam brush, apply the mod podge to the top center of the lid (not the raised edges), then place your paper on top and gently press.
-Apply a top coat of mod podge, and let dry!

SOOOO Cute! Wait until you see the monogram tag on the gift I sent you. I swear, we are two ladies sharing a brain sometimes. I think you got the bigger piece. :)

A fantastic idea for those containers. I used them for my cookies and was a alittle bummed by just tying them with ribbon and adding a tag- this is SO much cuter!!
