Christmas Bag Tags

Neighbor gifts.  Love them or hate them?  I think most of us have a love/hate relationship with them, right?  Please tell me I am not the only one carrying around the 'hate' portion.  Growing up, I remember my mom doing all sorts of different things for neighbor gifts.  When I was really little, I remember it being popcorn balls.  My mom made a mean popcorn ball.  However, as I got older we did about a million different things.  I have a few favorites that we did & more than a few favorites that we received.  I was, and have been, always amazed at people's thoughtfulness -- that is the love part.

The hate part, is drumming up my own idea & then actually carrying through on it.

We received our first 'neighbor' gift this year & it was such a cute idea, I had to re-create it & post it here.

The idea is one I vaguely remember passing in stores & it is so simple I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.  So here it is...put your favorite treat in an ordinary ol' ziploc sandwich bag & then tag with your own A-frame tag.

I just printed the file.  Cut it out, then folded & stapled twice.  And done.

I put popcorn in mine, because that is one of our favorite snacks & your should know I make a mean homemade popcorn {I know...it takes incredible talent to do so.} So you still need a neighbor gift idea?

Great.  You know the drill...first 3 comments get the file for free.

Otherwise you can find it here.

Oh and I am beyond excited to use these for Valentine's day...really, my life just got so easy.
