I made a bunch?of these bags in no time flat, I think the part that took the longest was running the ribbon thru the holes and tying the bows.

All I did was take a white lunch bag wheeled it with a Retired (Sorry) Poinsettia Jumbo wheel and the Real Red ink cartridge.? I then cut 2 Real Red strips of card stock 1 1/2″ X 5 1/4″ (the size will vary depending on your bag width), attached the strips to both sides of my bag top; folded the top over the same width as the strips and punched 2 holes with the 1/4″ Circle punch.? I then ran my ribbon thru the holes front to back; crossed over in the back and ran each end back to the front again stuck the candy cane thru the ribbon and tied it into a tight bow.? I then stamped the tag from the Curly Label Punch bundle using Real Red ink; punched it out and attach to the bag using the natural hemp twine.

    I love all of your simple, yet CREATIVE ideas for Christmas! I love to use other inexpensive items & fluff them up to make them really neat just like you! The Dollar Store is a perfect place to find those items & I’m glad you have been sharing your insider information as to where you have been purchasing the great finds to make your great creations!!!!!! Another spot I find handy is at Michael’s in their $1 or more bins. I end up spending too much money there though. Think I need to hit the Dollar Store more often. 🙂
    I also love the falling snowflakes on your blog, it makes it feel like winter even though our snow has melted here.
    I’d love to see the snowflakes falling on your blog all winter long!
