Design Team: Sweetie Bags

Julia must have been reading my mind when she created these gorgeous 'sweetie bags'.  I had thought of  decorating some empty little flower tubs to add sweets to as a Christmas gift idea but these are so much better!

Using cellophane bags, Julia filled them with different varieties of sweets and used the Prima North Country 'Red Deer' and 'Snow Fall' patterned papers to create the tabs for the tops of the bags.  She then embellished them with some Christmas sentiments.  The two cartons are created using the same patterned papers and filled with sweets.  A very simple idea but they make a lovely gift.  Just think of all the alternatives you could add (not just sweets).

    Great idea Julia and I think they would be perfect for teachers gifts and stocking fillers and its also a way of using up smaller pieces of cardstock left over from other projects
