 Christmas Bag Topper

You can purchase bags of candy at the dollar store with the usual topper or you can create an one of a kind topper and fill a bag yourself. Whether you need a small gift for the office party, a stocking stuffer, a small gift for a child or just a token to give a friend, this is an easy idea that is fun to make. Fill a plastic bag with items that may be of interest for the recipient such as sweets or toys for example and create a personal topper to close the bag off. This will give you a chance to use up supplies from scrapbook and card making supplies.

Make sure when using food that the bag is safe to use with edible items.
