CAS Gift Bag

Do you like to give little bags of treats at the holidays? Here's a super SIMPLE gift bag that makes a big impact. No adhesive is needed for this version.
This is the a muse studio white paper sack filled with chocolate and other yummy treats. French roast twine is wrapped around the bag and tied in a bow. The three different size poinsettias from the poinsettia die set were cut out of currant felt, rotated to alternate the petals and using the mini clothespin, were clipped onto the twine. That's it - easy peasy!
 I trimmed the bag and rolled it a little and pulled it apart to add interest to the top. The clothespin could have glitter added to it. The poinsettia could have some bling added or be cut out of cardstock or so many other ways but I really wanted a clean and simple (CAS) look to it.
Here's a side view. Wouldn't these be great at each place setting at a Christmas party? Or, wouldn't these be great on all your students desks at school? Or, how about on all of the desks in your office? Or, given out at Sunday School or to thank a friendly clerk at a store or... the list goes on and on.

On a sad note, my heart goes out to all of those affected by the tragedy in Connecticut. I can't even fathom the senselessness of this heart-breaking event. I just learned of a wonderful idea to help the kids at Sandy Hook to help deal with their grief as they move through the counseling process and wanted to share it with all of you:

Hug your loved ones and spread kindness and caring! 

all supplies are a muse studio:
