Love the birch bark container and is something I might do. However, I feel that Amanda's reindeer project made better use of the materials provided.

Angelika

November 18, 2015

These are all so fun! This remonds me of when I was a little girl in Germany. Every Christmas we would receive a large canister decorated like Santa with a variety of Lebkuchen cookies inside. We looked forward to each receiving our own canister of cookies every year. The fact that it was decorated made it soooooooo much more fun! I voted for #9 but really had a hard time deciding... Good luch to everyone!

Angelica Chambers
