So for this week's handmade holidays post...more cookies...
Because we give such simple gifts, we like to "fuss them up a bit". A few weeks ago, I made these gift bags:
In October, I sliced a fallen branch into slices to use as gift tags. You may have seen them on earlier handmade holidays posts (see here and here). For the teacher gifts, I made them a little more fancy by painting them instead of using a marker.
I also made some fabric feather tags to add. I would love to give credit where credit is due here, but these are all over the internet so I don't know who to credit. I believe I saw them for the first time on the "Green Wedding Shoes" website, but I can't be sure.
I added some real feathers to mine, and tied them together with gold thread and hot glue.
I put the cookies into a small plastic bag first, and then into the gift bag to keep them fresh longer. Some teachers are getting a variety of cookies, so I put each flavour in separate plastic bags and then into the larger gift bags.
