Decorating Those Ziplocks for Christmas Treats

Do you have tons of cardstock and ribbon laying around your home? Put it to good use during the candy-giving holidays. With just a few steps you can turn a Ziploc baggie into a personalized gift.
What You Will Need:
  • Cardstock
  • Ziploc Bags
  • Candy
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Craft Scissors
Fill baggie with candy of choice.

Fold piece of Cardstock in half and use the baggie to measure your side cuts and overlap. Use the craft scissors to make a nice edge.

Before stapling the cover shut, feed ribbon through like the picture below. Make sure the baggie is positioned correctly in the fold and staple just above the bottom of the cardstock flap.

Bring ribbon low and tie in place.

*Variations on this craft: Use raffia instead of ribbon, use craft foam instead of cardstock. Print labels to stick on the back flap with your holiday message.
