Hello friends!  Like a lot of you, I’ve been busy doing some Christmas baking.  It’s that time of the year.  I thought it would be fun to make some individual cookie bags using the Merry & Bright collection and some of the Fancy Pants Kraft Bags.  These would be great for teachers, the mail carrier, your favorite clerk at the bank, etc. Using pieces from the Ephemera Pack, bits of paper, and the pretty plaid Washi tape these went together in a snap. All you have to do once you’ve dressed up your bag is slide a yummy cookie inside and make someone’s day.

All three cookie bags
I made a couple of extra ones for small gifts. I had ordered some small flat personalized ornaments and a couple of necklaces from Etsy shops this year and these bags will be perfect for those as well.

I also used up some paper scraps and made a simple garland by machine stitching some punched out circles together.

For this bag I used the gold foiled star vellum on the top flap to add some interest. I love these cute ephemera trees! I accented them with the little stars from the Puffy Gold Foiled Stickers.

I added some Stickles to each of the bags for snow. 😉

Here again I used some of the beautiful gold foiled star vellum, this time for my background. What a gorgeous base to build on. I used the Plaid Washi tape on this one as a design element but also as my adhesive.

These are fun to make and come together in a snap. What a fun way to add some holiday cheer to someone’s day.   I hope I’ve inspired you to give them a try.
