Every year I say I’m just going to give simple gifts, but simple can be special too! This year we made Ornament Cards which doubled as cards and gifts and we made these simple brown bag gifts too!
My daughter wanted to make these drawing brown bags for her two besties. She drew the trees(I didn’t know she could draw Christmas trees!), but you can draw or paint any Christmassy pictures. You can add more details(bling, glitter etc.) too!
We baked cookie fingers to add to these gift bags. (using a pre-mix that did not hold its shape well. Note to self, always stay with familiar recipe! We pressed words out like YUM, EAT etc. but it did not turn out so well because the dough did not keep shape). Then we dipped the ends into melted chocolate and sprinkles. Still yummy though! I will definitely try this again soon with our familiar sugar cookie recipe…
I love how a simple brown bag can be turned into a lovely gift bag with just a few tweaks, don’t you?
