White Elephant 2012

While I'm trying to decide what my white elephant gift is going to be this year, I thought I would share with you what I did last year. It's a City Slicker S'more Kit. This is a gift that is super simple and easy to make. Check out the five steps below.


The above photo shows all the things you will need to assemble the packets. In addition, you will need:

  • A basket 
  • Ziploc bags
  • A stapler
  • Double stick tape
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Tiny match boxes



Step 1: Measure and cut your patterned scrapbook paper so that it can be folded in half over the Ziplock Bag. Then, cut white paper slightly smaller so it can be folded over the patterned paper. Design a message on the white paper before folding it over.


Step 2: Break the graham crackers and chocolate into square pieces and place into the Ziploc bag with 2 marshmallows (i use the s'more marshmallows because they lay flat).


Step 3: Wrap patterned scrapbook and white paper around the tiny match box. Feel free to draw a message on the white paper.


Step 4: Assemble all of the contents into a cute Christmas basket. 


Step 5: If you use the above gift for a White Elephant remember to put it in a box with enough support it won't move around on your way to work or when that curious coworker starts shaking it.
