Please help me welcome Keri from Pressed Down, Shaken Together.  She is our first guest blogger of the series and I am just thrilled she is here to share her creativity! You guys are going to love what she is sharing with us today.

Hi there, Happily Mother After fans and friends!!  I am so excited to be a part of this fun guest posting series and I have an inexpensive but adorable way to package some of your homemade goodies for holiday gift giving!!

I guess I should take a minute and introduce myself ... I'm Keri and I blog over at pressed down, shaken together!  I am a mom, wife, blogger, crafter and lover of lists, vocabulary, reality tv and exclamation points!!  Each week I share a recipe for {taste this tuesday} and a craft and tutorial for {create this friday}!  I am also hosting a fun {holiday sweet swap} link party all the way until December 31st and it's a great place to link up any of your holiday/seasonal sweet treats!  And you can also connect with me on Facebook and Pinterest :)

And now, let's get down to business!  Today I'm sharing a sweet way to say thank you to teachers, perfect party favors for a holiday get together or sweet treats for your neighbors ...

CD envelope cookie holders! 

While your favorite cookies are baking, grab a few supplies:

To get started, print out my printable "have a sweet holiday" labels on white card stock.  Trim them into what ever shape you like ... circle, square or scallop.  I inked both the tag and the envelope (run an ink pad around the edge of the paper) to add a quick little dash of color!
Slip a piece of card stock into your envelope to add a festive touch.  Now, place a cookie (or two!) into your sleeve.  Punch a hole in the envelope, tag and chipboard snowflake and use bakers twine, ribbon or even jute to tie them on to close the cookie holder.

Pop them in a basket by the door, add them to a gift bag or hand them out door-t0-door to spread a little holiday cheer in your neighborhood!  If you are a classroom room mother, this would be an easy project to make with your class, too!  Hope you were inspired to {create this}!

Happy holidays and hope to see you again soon!
Wow, Keri! What a simple but oh-so-creative way to spread some holiday cheer to those around us.  Is anyone else loving the fact that literally anyone can re-create this craft in very little time?!  Such a smart idea.

{And, Keri, if you couldn't tell...I love me some exclamation points too!!!}

Be sure to check back tomorrow for {Day 4} of the 12 Crafty Days of Christmas series.  
Amy from Fun to Craft will be here to show off her DIY skills!
