Mini Candy Bags

Twelve Days Of Christmas Ornaments.
Day Six: 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.
