Handmade, small gifts are enjoyable to create for any occasion or holiday. Chocolate coins will be fun to give away during Hanukkah in a pretty, little hand stamped muslin bag. Lori Tecler’s project below also features a stamp from The Cats Pajamas that uses the more traditional spelling of the holiday name for the traditional, little gift bag.
Oh, did we say chocolate? Yum. What is a holiday without chocolate? Brenda Quitman’s star shaped packaging looks very festive and fun to make.
