These are little gift bags I made for my hubby's work for Christmas Eve. I was Santa and took them all a treat! As for the the base, I bought a package of paper bags from Wal-Mart. They are 5 1/4" x 8 1/2". I covered them with DSP made a little tag and wah-lah, they were done! I know they thought the best part was what was inside! Sugar cookies and Caramel Fudge Brownie Bars! That is thier favorite!
