DIY: S’mores Kits

November 2nd, 2009




Happy Monday to all of you! I spent the weekend with my family celebrating my twin sisters 30th birthdays. We had a blast and I wish that we could have spent the whole week together. To celebrate the occasion I put together these little S’mores kits for everyone. There’s something about fall weather, a cabin and a fireplace that just scream S’mores. Besides, who doesn’t love Graham Crackers, chocolate and marshmallows?

I wish I could take credit for this fun little kit but I actually spotted this while shopping at Packaging Specialties, my favorite packaging store here in Seattle. They used clear accetate boxes to wrap up all the necessities for homemade S’mores and I just added a bit of baker’s twine to finish it off. The two bottom boxes measure 3″x3″x2″ and the top one is 2″ square. These would make a sweet guest room gift at a wedding or a nice treat for house guests over the coming holidays. Simply add a coordinating ribbon, roast and enjoy!

    So cute. I love s’mores. What kind of chocolate did you use?

  20. Kathleen Says:

    Thanks everyone for your kinds words, I’m so glad you all like the S’mores kits! The chocolate that I used were squares from a standard Hershey’s Milk chocolate bar. Mmmm, kinda feel like a S’more for breakfast now…. 😉

    I’m getting married next year and while the wedding will hopefully have some class, the rehearsal dinner is going to be one big country country “hoe-down” at my fiance’s cabin. Like you said, can’t have a cabin party without s’mores. What a great idea!

  22. nicole Says:

    A friend of mine told me about this S’more Kit DIY idea; which is very elegant. They thought I should tell you guys about a complimentary gift idea. We hand-make personalized wooden marshmallow roasting sticks in three sizes (47″, 30″, 16″) to which you can add any wording that you’d like (nicknames, dates, special events). Of course, if you don’t want us to do it, you could make them yourself. Check out the website for more info.

    Happy Thanksgiving!- Don

  26. A Cozy Kitchen Says:

    love LOVE this idea. i’ve been thinking of all sorts of DIY gift ideas and this one by far seems like the easiest I’ve come across! this is a definite must.

  27. amanda Says:

    I love this post…. trying to think of other ideas that could be along the same lines. Any ideas on other gifties that could go together in boxes like these?

  28. Amanda H Says:

    Scrumptious Idea!

  29. Julie B Says:

    has anyone been able to find these boxes online anywhere? I need a whole bunch, so don’t want to try and find them all at a store!

  30. geek+nerd Says:

    That is such a cute gift idea! Thanks for sharing.

  31. Krystyn Says:

    Any way you can tell me where you found the clear boxes? I’ve looked at my local Michael’s, but no luck there!! I’d really like to make these for my son’s teachers!! Great idea!!

  32. Lindsey Says:

    I absolutely love this idea! I am definitely going to keep it up my sleeve for a future hostess gift. I just featured it in a post on my blog about DIY Christmas presents:


  33. Linda Says:

    Love it! Problem is, I can’t find the acetate boxes anywhere and I’ve searched EVERYWHERE: Michael’s, Target, Walmart, Hobby Lobby and even The Container Store. Where can I buy them?

  34. Kathleen Says:

    Hi Linda, I was able to purchase mine through Packaging Specialties and I know they are able to take orders over the phone. I have also purchased them through Paper Mart which has a great selection too! Good luck and happy holidays!

  35. christa baca Says:

    Fun! I do these at parties a lot. I bring in a bunch of tall round vases and throw in pre wrapped mini Hershey’s, marshmellows and use bamboo skewers for the sticks. So much fun!

  36. Michele Says:

    GREAT IDEA. Just featured on my blog: as a snow day treat. Been bogged down in the snow here in WV!

  38. Mandy Says:

    What a great idea! I’ll do this for my coworkers!!

  39. Dawn Says:

    I don’t know what I heart more about your kit, it’s own cuteness, the baker’s twine (my current obsession) or that I saw it there too and love it even more!

  40. Tammy: Mama Bear Stamps Says:
