Candy Bag Gift

The Robin's Nest is having a DT Call and I am excited to be submitting again and reapplying for the team.

I am trying out for the Design Team for The Robin's Nest and this is my project. With Christmas coming what a great time to make a little gift for a special person on your list. I have filled mine with candy but you could add a gift card and/or money as well.

I started using one of my Spellbinder die to cut the shape for the bag. I used Red Snowflake cardstock from The Robin's Nest store. I love this paper as it is double sided and works great for a project like this.

I added this template if you want to print and cut it out.

Once you have it cut out, use your scoring board or cutter to mark a line. I show on on the template where I put the fold but you can put it where you feel it fits.

Mark lines inside and on the fold line so that you can insert your ribbon for the handle. Make sure you use double sided tape to hold down your ribbon. The next step is your choice but I chose to cut a coordinating piece of paper to place on the top for some contrast. I then filled a baggie with some Christmas candy and again used some double sided tape to hold it down inside and then stapled through all layers.

Now you don't want your staple to show so again this is your choice, I decided to cover it with a flower. The next steps show you how I created the flower. I made the flower from Red Snowflake cardstock and added some dew drops to the center. If you have never used dew drops you have to get some from the store, they are awesome on so many projects.

I added some paint to the flower to look like snow.

I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the greenery behind the flower.

This project was very quick and easy to make.
