Box in a Bag

I’ve seen these gorgeous little bags around the blogs and thought they would make great “packaging” for Christmas goodies for neighbours and teachers. Thanks to Paula Goff for her excellent tutorial.  I think all up I made about 25, and with her tutorial they were so quick and simple!

I used up as many of my retired papers as I could for these, mixed with chocolate chip, tangerine tango, kiwi kiss and pacific blue card stock for the scallop base and tabs.

For the tags I started off using the scallop oval punch, layered with a hand cut oval (because I am yet to aquire the large oval punch) stamped with “a very merry christmas to you” from the “best yet” hostess stamp set.

Eventually I realised there was a much quicker way to make them look finished. I used the “a very merry christmas” stamp from the “punches three” set (also a hostess set), punched out with the scallop square (which I do own) – much simpler! And we filled them up with rocky road, chocolate balls, chocolate slice and other yummy things!
