Ideas for What to Do With Chocolate Mints at Christmas!

Christmas Mints
Who would believe that under this little lot are plain old mints, the sort you always see at Christmas.
Round Mints
All I have done is use my Stampin Up scallop and plain circle punches to make a top and bottom to cover the mint and then a snowflake and Christmas tree punch to complete the idea.

The scalloped discs are attached to the mint using double sided tape.
These are just a few very basic examples, once the creative juices start flowing the ideas are endless.
I am making a blue and cream set as wedding favors for a wedding next year.  All I am doing is putting four mints into a very narrow  “pretzel” bag (have a look on e-bay, they are also sometimes called lollibags) and tying the bag top with a cream ribbon.
