Last year, I made a spur of moment decision to do away with store bought bon bons and instead make re-usable bags and fill them with Christmas treats. It was an easy decision to make because more often than not I'd forget to buy them. Some years I've managed to cover up this oversight; rummaging around in the cupboard Christmas morning and finding just enough left over from previous years.
It was fun and so nice to do something different and the bags looked lovely hanging off the chairs. I ran out of time to make name tags and so this is what I've been stitching this week. Three down and two more to go!
The bags were kept simple.
And it's easy to add more when you need too!
This year I plan to spread the job of filling the bags around, so everyone contributes; it would be nice not to know the punchline to the jokes!
