Tonight I'd like to share a little Christmas gift with you; my father-in-law is hard to buy gifts for in that he has pretty much whatever he will wear (enough sweaters and socks already). But one thing that I know he looks forward to every Christmas season is fresh, homemade fudge. This is a pretty small container, but trust me, he gets refills! Dad is a fudge purist--no pecans allowed. My first batch of fudge every year has to be the plain variety--the recipe from the back of the Kraft Marshmallow Cream jar. I've never had it flop, even when I didn't bother getting my candy thermometer out. :-)
This year I'm using a PaperTrey's Nugget Tins, as well as Melissa Bickford's new Merry and Bright set (coming out on September 15). I love the little mix and match tree parts and the clean, fresh font on the sentiments. Here I paired the trees with this month's Holiday Vintage Prints paper, Pure Poppy cardstock, and Dark Chocolate Dotted Satin ribbon. I made a tag using a Spellbinders Tags Trio die and Simple Alphabet. I think Dad will approve!
