These bags are a quick and easy way to package homemade baked goods. Gather a few brown paper lunch bags, assorted paints, a sponge, scissor, and a sharpie. With your sharpie, draw several shapes onto a sponge. Using a scissor, cut out the shapes. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect as we are going for the rustic look. Dip the sponge shapes into the paint(I used acrylics)and stamp to your hearts content. Once the paint has dried(you can speed it up with a blow dryer if you wish), take your sharpie and do a quick outline on some of the shapes, adding squiggles and other dibs and dabs for interest. Place your baked goods into the bag, fold the top over once, punch a couple of holes, thread some ribbon or twine through the holes, add a tag and voila, you're done! Easy peasy. Homemade goodies in a rustic, homemade bag. Perfect!
I wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season. As we say here in the islands, Mele Kalikimaka and Hauoli Makahiki Hou, or Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
