Project: Mini goodie bags

Give food gifts a lift with these easy-to-make goodie bags.

These delightful goodie bags are a far cry from brown paper grocery bags! Crafting a bag from paper is simple to do and looks so much better. Use these to wrap gifts, hold treats like cookies or crackers, or even to store small items on a shelf. Adding a personalized message on the front will make it extra-special.
