Hanukkah is just around the corner. My dear friend, K., and her children celebrate Hanukkah. She doesn’t have family near by to celebrate with her so I try to make a small gift for them each year. Because life seems to be getting in the way of the things I want to do this year, I chose to make easy (with the emphasis on easy) Hanukkah treat bags.
Hanukkah Treat Bags
I found these blue and white candies as my starting point.
Blue and white candy
Blue and white card stock paper
I cut the white card stock to fit the width of the bag and 4 inches tall. I folded the card stock in half so that it fit on top of the bag and made a bag topper. I added blue and white decorative paper to the front of the card stock bag topper.
I stapled the bag topper onto the bag and disguised the staple with a gift tag added with double stick tape.
It took me about 5 minutes to make these 3 Hanukkah treat bags (add 5 more minutes for gathering the supplies and distractions). My plan is to make one treat bags for each member for each of the 8 nights of Hanukkah. (I’m hoping life doesn’t get in the way of my plans).
