Sweet things come in small packages! Here’s a lovely holiday gift giving idea by Design Team member, Amy Tsuruta. (Although this project was specifically designed for Christmas, you could easily adapt it for the 8 days of Hanukkah or any gift giving occasion.)
Amy uses 2.75 x 4″ White Kraft Bags and beautifully decorates each with Divine Twine, doilies, tags, stickers and other fun notions. Then, she numbers them 1 through 12 and fills them with assorted treats — gift cards, money, candy, tickets, jewelry, anything goes! This is a fun way to spread the gift giving out over a couple weeks so that each day the receiver has a special treasure to open. You can display them all for a lovely presentation, package for gift giving as Amy does with the ceramic berry basket or simply present the lucky recipient with one each day. The choice is yours!
