Fill your boxes with the yummy chex mix and tie a cute bow with bakers twine or ribbon. I found these fun Chinese Boxes at Hobby Lobby, but I have seen them at several other craft stores. I also added a fun little accordion pinwheel to the front (you can find the whole tutorial here), but it would be cute with a fun gift tag as well. This is a super easy gift to put together, and your friends will LOVE it!

Warning: This Chex Mix is very addicting…but oh so yummy! ;)

Hope everyone has a Happy Holidays!
