Bucket of dirt.


If there's anything I'm a sucker for, its cute packaging and sweets. When you put them together? I can barely handle it!

For last month's Cara box, I was matched with Shawna. The theme was childhood and I quickly learned that Shawna was all things tomboy growing up (building forts, playing with salamanders, and even hated Barbies!). I knew I wanted to include some sort of play on that in the box...and realized I had to put in a package of dirt pudding! Cute, right? 
I was a bit stumped on how to package it at first, until I remembered these cute galvanized pails I had picked up at the dollar spot in Target a few months ago. 
After that, I literally just picked up a single sleeve of oreos (you can buy them in the snack aisle at most drug stores/gas stations), vanilla pudding, and sour gummies. After smashing the oreos and pouring in the vanilla pudding mix, I wrapped them in some scrap burlap and tied with bakers twine. I put the sour gummy worms in a glassine bag and...voila! Dirt pudding...or a pail of dirt'n worms!



Cute, right? What fun gift ideas have you come up with this Christimas?
