This year I wanted to make special gift packs of homemade goodies that had a distinct Kiwi kitsch style.
To start with, I made the packaging with a bit of crafting know how – this is what I did……
I brought some crafting items:
a pack of medium sized wooden spring clip pegs
1 pack of kiwiana girl doll balsa wood cut outs
1 pack of NZ tiki balsa wood cut outs
Several packs of cellophane
Black curling ribbon
Trimmed eco paper bowls
Then I got busy with my hot glue gun and stuck the cut outs to the pegs.
That done, next step involves the fun stuff – getting messing in the kitchen!!! I downloaded a recipe off the internet for truffles that could be adapted to any flavour and got stuck in.
I made approximately 60 – 70 truffles (it’s hard to tell because the husband was busy munching on them as I put them away. Sneaky man!)
..and here they are, all tucked up tight in a large air sealed container…….. over three levels, mmmmmmm. I made two flavours with a variety of coatings. The two flavours were strawberries & cream and choc orange jaffa. YUM.
Following the great truffle cook off, the next step was to make the cards which I used some recycled card paper, regular stamping ink and some rubber stamps.
All packaged up looks like this – Delish!!
