New Year's Party in a Box.

Last week as Christmas drew closer I had to let some things go. One of those things was delivering treats to a few friends. I figured I could come up with something fun for the New Year which would give me time to stop stressing and really enjoy the Christmas holiday.

This week as I was brainstorming ideas I remembered seeing these cute miniature glass bottles of sparkling cider at the Grocery Distributor the last time I was there. I made a special trip and low and behold, they still had some in stock. 12 mini bottles for $12.

I found 30 paper party blowers for $5 at Target in their "New Year's Party" section. A little dash of handmade confetti and I had a New Year's Party in a Box.

The kraft boxes are from Xpedx and were from my stash.

I created the labels with our name on them but made a more generic version to share with you all. Just in case you had to let some things go last week too.

You can download the label here.

The thing I love the most about this idea is that you could use this same concept for an anniversary gift, wedding party favors, housewarming, etc. A quick label change and the possibilities are endless.


  1. This is so charming and such a great gift! Thanks for sharing the free download and inspiring us!

  10. are there certain size avery labels that work with this printable? do tell! Dandee, you never disappoint!

  11. Thanks for all the nice comments, friends!

    Molly, I use full sheets of label paper for this type of printable. You can find them at any office supply store in the label aisle. I've even snagged them at Wal-Mart in the past. Hope it helps!

  12. wow that is such a cute idea! I wish i was your neighbor! :) Happy New Year!

  13. So cute! I let Christmas cards go this year. I just knew we couldn't pull anything together. So we'll do New Years cards instead. Although we haven't exactly started working on them yet, so who knows!

  14. Oh, how fabulous! What a simple yet effective and lovely gift!

  15. This kit is so darling. I wish I'd had it last week! Next year!

  16. This is so amazing... I am hoping to make a box for my good friends who just bought a home... I need some advice... I have no design background... can you give me a few directions and pointers on designing labels?

  17. I loved your idea and used it for my presents here in Switzerland. Unfortunately I couldn't find the boxes so I used paper bags and Washi tape, I hope you like them? Thank you for sharing, you saved ma from a gift dilemma!
