Peppermint Bark: Gifts from the Kitchen

Happy Friday friends! We are back today with another Gift from the Kitchen. We have been sharing frugal ideas for homemade gifts, and today we are showing how to recycle a raisin container into a gift canister, that is perfect for Peppermint Bark or any of your favorite treats.

The ideas are endless, by recycling a container or can, it keeps the cost very inexpensive. I found this scrapbook paper at Walmart in the Party Section for $.97 cents for 7 pieces…deal! The ice skate embellishments are from Hobby Lobby, bought at 50% off in their scrapbook area for $1.50. You could also use some small ornaments, I found some at Target in the Dollar Section.

Here is what you will need…

  • Container or canister {one with a lid is best}
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Embellishments
  • Ribbon or Twine
  • Glue Dots {not shown, I like Elmer’s the best…easy, peasy}


  1. Measure the container
  2. Cut scrapbook paper to fit
  3. Glue paper onto container with glue dots or other glue
  4. Add embellishments to ribbon or twine
  5. Tie onto canister
  6. Fill with Peppermint Bark

If you need the recipe for Peppermint Bark, I shared it on Cupcake Tuesday this week along with some yummy cupcakes!

And to catch you up on the Gifts from the Kitchen series…

  1. That is entirely too cute! I love it! And I love peppermint bark so I would probably make the container and eat all the bark myself, lol!! I'd love if you'd link it up to my party! Jenny recently posted..Latest & Greatest #8, Garage Sale Table, Little Bits O' ChristmasMy Profile

  3. I love all your packaging ideas! I am actually making several homemade gifts this year. I canned lots of zucchini relish this year and I am giving that packaged up with some dried pinto beans in a clear cellophane bag and cornbread mix!
