Easy Gift Bag for an Office Treat or Table Favor

With Christmas just around the corner, this post is all about Holiday gift packaging.
I fact, today's post is part of a Blog Hop with lots of packaging ideas from
demonstrators all over the world.  Be sure to click through to see everyone's projects..

If you're like me you may have a small stash of pretty papers tucked away somewhere.
Why not use them to make cute little candy gift bags?
This sweet little bag is super easy to make from a 6" x 4.5" piece of paper.

The bag's small size is perfect for leaving a little gift on a co-worker's desk.
Hint: it easily fits 3 nuggets.
Or use it as a table favor by each place on your holiday table.
