Gift Tower

"Give the gift that keeps giving! Keep them warm with a mug of hot cocoa and keep their mouths happy with crispy buttery shortbread sugar cookies, and peanut caramel clusters."



Gift Towers


 

Materials:


  • 1 Large Coffee Mug of choice Any sized coffee mug of choice

  • 1 Canister Hot Chocolate Mix of choice Any flavor hot chocolate of choice

  • 1 Canister Butter Shortbread Sugar Cookies Any canister cookies of choice

  • 1 Box Chocolate Peanut Clusters Any chocolates of choice

  • Any other small trinkets or gadgets you choose

  • 1 Roll Clear Tape

  • 1 Roll or Large Bag Cellophane wrap

  • 1 Roll Wired holiday ribbon

  • 1 Gift tag

  • 1 Candy cane


Directions:


Step 1:


Play with your items stacking them how you see fit, by weight and size. You can be very creative when stacking and towering your items how ever you wish and see fit.

The following is how I made the one above:


I started with the boxed peanut cluster chocolates, and placed it as the base. Using a couple pieces of tape, tape the container of buttered shortbread sugar cookies to the boxed chocolates. Next I stacked the Starbucks hot chocolate container on top the canister of cookies and taped into place. (My container of hot chocolate and base of mug were the same size) I was able to stack the Starbucks mug on top, taping into place using a couple more pieces than everything else due to the weight.


Adding a couple of touches such as mini bags of marshmallows, chocolate covered candy canes to the mug. I added a couple of personal touches of things the recipient would enjoy.


Step 2: Now it's time to wrap it!

Roll out your cellophane roll and measure the sides to the top of the tower giving yourself 6″ extra to stick out of the top. Or if you have a bag, place tower into bag, centering your items and pull the sides to the top center of the tower.

Now its time to wrap it! Roll out your cellophane roll and measure the sides to the top of the tower giving yourself 6″ extra to stick out of the top. Or if you have a bag, place tower into bag, centering your items and pull the sides to the top center of the tower.


Step 3: Wrap your ribbon around the bunched section, and tie tightly.


Using the remaining ribbon tie a bow or make a multi looped bow to attach to your finished gift.


Sign your tag and tie around the bunched top.


Add your finishing touch of a yummy peppermint candy cane. (I added the handmade reindeer candy canes you can find these in another holiday post)


And Waa-Laaa! You are finished!

Now get to gift giving! It’s the best part!
