Quick Gift

This is a simple and quick way to make a special treat for someone. This would be great for a classroom party, gifts for teachers, neighbors or nursing home residents. I actually whipped these up in 30 mins, filled them with sugar free candy, and the kids passed these out at the nursing home tonight. It was so easy to make and the elderly people were so thankful.

1. Begin with a simple brown bag and cut it down to half of the normal size.

2. Cut scrapbook paper to fit the bag. Be creative, you can add one or stack different scrap paper on each other. Also, add chipboard or stickers with pop-up dots.

3. Fill it up with candy or prizes for kids.

4. Hole punch the top of the bag and add a ribbon or brown rope.

  4. Fun idea to jazz up a plain brown bag. I've got tons of these bags for kid crafts but haven't thought to embelish them to look nice enough to gift. Plus I have all my old scrap book paper sitting in a closet because I just do digital now. I'll have to try a few. Thanks for sharing.
