Auguri – Handmade School Christmas Treats

Christmas Crafts, Paper Crafts

Auguri. That’s Italian for Merry Christmas, congratulations and more such happy wishes. It’s my wish for you in this XMAS season.  With lots of delightfully happy & creative projects over the days to follow.


On that, I’m sharing one such creative projects: Here’s a basket of wrapped little chocolates that just went out of the door, off to the primary school.

Simple, but the basket looked amazingly colorful.

Simple. Off-white craft paper, folded over green leaf shapes glued on with a red dot did the trick to convey that Christmas cheer.

Step-by-Step Paper Craft Howto

Best to do these kind of projects when you take a coffee break, doing a step at at time:

  • 1. Cut red circles and green leaf shapes
  • 2. Glue these together into a vignette
  • 3. Wrap the chocolates or other Christmas treats
  • 4. Glue on the vignettes
  • 5. Write little wishes on some or all of them.
  • 6. Put in a display basket.

“A pensiere” as the Italians would say. Literally translated as ‘a thought…’ of love and cheer merriment of the season.
