Handmade Cinnamom Heart Tied Gifts

Posted on | December 22, 2011 | 13 Comments

Remember the cinnamon applesauce heart ornaments I made earlier this week? I used them to decorate my Christmas presents too! I wrapped each box in kraft paper, added a tag, tied two hearts onto each string, and tied the two strings together into a bow. Viola! So easy and festive. I love how simple and handmade each of the packages look. And they’re going to smell super amazing under the tree! A cute idea for Christmas and Valentine’s day gifts too!

    They look really unique and that striped string reminds me of my childhood purchases of sweet pies. I am assuming you do not have any dogs or cats around the house – if I placed such sweet-smelling packages under our tree, our cats and dog would definitely gobble them up!

    Ha! Yes, dogs would eat them. My cat isn’t interested. He likes buttery savory cookies!

    Hi Jen!

    You can’t eat them, they’re rock hard. But smell delicious!

    I can’t wait to try these – the recipe is so simple! …yes it’s past Christmas and yes I’m still catching up on holiday activities :) I hope they keep better than my popcorn garlands did (not recommended).

    Can you tell me where you found the paper for wrapping?

    You can pick up brown paper at office supply stores like Staples or try big box stores like Target in the office supply or packing supply aisle.

    I love the red hearts! Did you just add food coloring to your basic recipe to make it red? If so, any particular type?
