Quick Technique | Holiday Cookie Bag

Christmas cookies are a highlight of the holiday season at my house, but packaging is half the fun! This year I’m doing snowball theme bags and inside I’ll tuck Russian Tea Cakes, which my family has always called Snowball Cookies. This project features my Snow Ball die from the Holiday 2017 collection.

Quick Technique:

Using a 5 1/2” X 11” piece of card stock, fold old horizontally at 5” and again at 6” from top, forming the cookie bag. Put a die cut and a bit of mica glitter in a clear plastic bag. Fold top over. Glue to top of the cookie bag. Seal a few cookies in food safe clear plastic bag and staple or glue to the back of cookie bag, using a small folded doily and other embellishments of your choice. Make a pair of small handles using embroidery floss and tiny white pom poms and attach as shown.
