This was the make and take project for the Heartfelt Inkspiration team meeting on Monday. A few of us attended the Stampin’ Up! regional event in Lansing, Michigan, last month and saw this idea demonstrated. I had to try it!
The concept is just a card with a slit in the top slipped over the handles of a gift bag. We cut the slit a little deeper using the Stampin’ Trimmer. (That “cut anywhere” feature works beautifully for this.) We fastened a paperclip to the top of the bag to hold it together. Some knotted a bit of ribbon around the clip and used it as a decorative element on the top of the card.
And inside the bag? Fabulous Candy Cane Popcorn (recipe HERE). I popped 1/2 cup of corn kernels and used a 5-ounce package of 12 candy canes. My festive and yummy result looked like this:
