Super Easy gift bag

Wow, is this December flying by or what???? So much to do...so little time. We are having our annual cookie decorating party tomorrow, and then Saturday having friends over to go look at the Christmas lights. That is...if the weather cooperates. It's POURING rain right now. We'll see if it lasts through the weekend.

This is a great little project if you ever need a gift bag in a pinch. If you have a paper lunch sack laying around, you can easily transform it into a gift bag! I cut a circle in the front of this one with my trusty, old-school, Creative Memory circle cutter (you know, the one with the big glass plate???). I added a piece of transparency over the whole to create a window...embellished...and it's done!



With all the gloomy weather, it's been difficult getting a good photo of my projects. Sorry for the glare off the transarency!! Here are some closeup of the ruffled ribbon and other stuff!


I plan on filling it with caramel chocolate popcorn that i'm making this weekend. Along with the 7 other recipes I want to try, LOL!! I'm hoping to squeeze in some baking this weekend, along with all the other holiday things we are doing. Hope you're having a good week and staying warm and dry!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your bags. The black and white ribbon with the light blue is a perfect color combo. Hope you post the recipe for the popcorn. Also wanted to add that the luninaries are so cute. I think I will try this with my grandson over the holiday. I actually already have everything to make them.
