Holiday M&Ms

This is a simple project I came up with for some Christmas goodies. I had been given these long, skinny bags by a friend over a year ago to be used with Pixie Sticks, but thought they would make great M&Ms tubes. :) I made a paper funnel to help me get the M&Ms in the bags. Then I tied it off with red grosgrain ribbon. Before making the "knot" in the ribbon, I laid a piece of silver stretchy cord over the tied area so that it would be "in" the knot. Then, I attached a tag that I had placed an eyelet in with the silver cord by tying it, then snipping off the ends. This project was very simple and I was able to make quite a few while watching the Survivor finale on Sunday night. I would have made more, but I ran out of bags. LOL

Stamps: Papertrey Holiday Treats

Ink: Glorious Green, Real Red

Paper: Glorious Green, Real Red, Green Galore, SU Whisper White

Accessories: brads, eyelet, silver cord, red grosgrain ribbon, bags, M&Ms, various circle punches


  1. Wow, that's amazing. I wouldn't do even half of the projects you've recently showed. Well done!

  2. These are fantastic! Reminds me of the carrot shaped ones you see at Easter time but I love the look of the greens and red! Fabulous!

  7. hey Jody,

    I hadn't checked my google reader in awhile and had 877 posts. (aack!) Only 13 were yours but wow, they were great posts. What awesome gifts ideas you have been working on. I love these tubes and the patty boxes and the tins! Great ideas! How in the world do you find the time? I saw that you do it during TV time. I need to do more of that but what a pain to drag all my stuff out and then put it away again. But, I guess it would be worth it if I would actually get something done! Thanks for your great Christmas idea posts!
