DIY Polka Dot Christmas Gift Bags

12/20/2011

After completing my Christmas cookies I really wanted to gift some of them to friends and neighbors. I had seen these adorable little bags on Anna's sweet blog In Honor of Design and was inspired. But alas, I was in a rush (as I usually am these days), so I relied on Matt to pick up some small, simple bags at Michael's, giving my best description of what I wanted. He of course, came home with a much bigger version than I envisioned, so I grabbed my scissors, tape, a fancy gold pen and some sweet little gift tags from Anthropologie. This is what I came up with.

I love cute crafts that I am actually capable of doing. My husband would totally get the wrong bags as well. I stopped sending him to the store years ago.
