"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Neighbor Gifts...Snowman Buttons and Treat Jars

There are only SOME things better then Oreo's.....like brownies :0)
So why not Snowman Buttons!
Here is a little poem that I attached to each gift.
This is what we handed out for neighbor gifts this year!
I found the big pack of Oreo's at Sam's Club.  The box comes with 10 packs of separate pre-packed Oreo's, perfect for gift giving. 20 neighbor gifts for less then $12.00  And so many of them have told me that they loved the buttons! 

 A simple little gift I gave to a few of the ladies in my neighborhood for Visiting Teaching were these simple little treat jars. 
 I made them out of baby food jars. I spray painted the lids, filled them with mint m&m's, tied them with a tag and ribbon. Just a simple way of saying Merry Christmas!
