How-to: Santa goody boxes

Nothing fills me with the spirit of the season more than seeing the smiles of friends and family each year, and what better way to entice them than with some of my famous toffee bark? Each year I look for a keen new way to wrap up my little goodies and, this time around, I had one of those lightning bolt moments of creativity. I absolutely LOVE our Santa Place cards, and thought, “Why not transfer that design onto our take out boxes?” The result… OH SO CUTE!!!

Cheers!
