Candy Cane Lane Gift Bag

Hello friends! I can't believe it's December already! This year has gone by WAY TO FAST and I only have two Christmas presents purchased (one I can't remember where I hid it because I got it two months ago...YIKES)! How's your December going???  Well...I've decided I'm NOT going to STRESS...I'm going to ENJOY!!!

Today I'm gonna share one last project from my November workshops.  I made this for a Facebook Hop in October, but forgot to share it on my blog and the Christmas version is so cute I had to share it!

To make this cute gift you'll need your FAVORITE designer paper. I chose Candy Can Lane from the Holiday Catalog. Cut a 3 1/2" x 12" piece of paper and score it at 5 1/4", 6 1/4" and 11 1/2". Cut a shape in the bottom half using framilts or a punch (I used the Layering Circles Framelits). Fold at the score lines. Fill 3" X 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bag (item 141704) with your gift or candy. I used Puff Peppermints to match the designer paper. Finally staple it into the designer paper so it shows through your opening.  I added some ribbon to the top and some Bakers Twine on the side with a Glimmer star that I cut using the Starlight Thinlit dies. 

These come together so quickly and are a FUN gift!  I hope you'll give this project a try! Post a photo in the comments if you do!!


Well....thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today! I hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend! I hope that our family gets to go Christmas tree hunting and I get to start decorating! 

Don't forget about the CLOSEOUT sales that are going on NOW! I need to go shopping too!
