Hi everyone! We are so happy to be visiting today from Boxwood Clippings. Over at our blog we have a feature named ‘Holler Dollar’ where we post our favorite finds for a buck.
Today we’re happy to share our latest dollar find, which makes the most absolutely adorable and perfect gift for the Holidays.

Yep, we’re talking about that sweet little cupcake carrier from The Dollar Tree.
We made easy cupcakes from a cake mix and
topped them with homemade buttercream and crushed soft peppermint (also
from The Dollar Tree).

 Then we added some black tulle and a bow to finish it off.

One cake mix made 18 cupcakes, and filled
two cupcake carriers making this one very inexpensive gift for
co-workers, teachers, neighbors and friends!

    I love the idea of food "wrapped" in a reusable container. It's the full package kind of gift!
