Mini Candy Bags

Twelve Days Of Christmas Ornaments.
Mini Candy Bags.

 These pretty little bags decorated with candy canes, can either be filled with candy,a suprise gift or, stuffed with tissue paper to make a pretty decoration and look lovely hanging from a Christmas tree.

I made these in red, white and green because I like my tree in the tradditional Christmas colours but you can make them in any colour. I like to fill them with candy to give to the children when they visit.
