Gingerbread in a Box

My friend, Pam, is an extremely talented scrapbooker/card maker/paper crafter.  When she recently uploaded a few of her projects to Facebook, I knew I had to borrow one super awesome idea.  After several e-mails back and forth about how cute her “Cupcakes in a Box” project was and one order going in to CTMH for the boxes, I began work on “Gingerbread in a Box”…

These sweet kits are going to my boys’ preschool teachers for Christmas!  I love how they turned out.  Each kit contains a box of gingerbread mix (I didn’t cover and embellish my bread boxes like Pam did… ran out of time), white icing with tips, three containers of mini gumdrops and dot candies, a gingerbread man cookie cutter, and a mini rolling pin.  Cutie Pie added the adorable salt dough ornaments for his teacher and his teaching assistant.

I’m unsure of whether I should give one of these kits to Wildman’s teacher or not.  She specifically noted (several times) that she does not eat or want sweets on her Christmas gift questionnaire that went home to the students.  I’ve been working on batches and batches of homemade granola so I might give her that…  A post about that little project is coming soon!
