Little giftbags and advent-calendar

Hi, and welcome to my "home for Christmas, day 2!!! :) :)
I'm really in a bit of a hurry today. I'm off to Moss to have a class.
So I'll show you two fast and easy little projects.
I really LOVE this little folded "french fry bag" Perfect for a sweet little gift. I've filled mine with some chocolate hearts.


Here are easy step-by step pictures, how to fold this bag:
Start with a square piece of double sided patterned paper.
mine is 8X8inch.
Patterned paper by 3ndypapir.
fold in half

take one of the corners and fold it over to the other side
do exactly the same with the other corner.

Fold one of the upper corner down to secure the two folded corners.

No glue needed.
Your box is ready to be embellished and filled. :)

VOILA!!

Here in Norway we use to have count-down calendars for the kids in december before christmas evening (we celebrate the 24th.)
Some people fill the calendar with little things others have chipboard-calendars with cute little pictures and stories. I fill my calendar with things to DO with my kids.
I love to take time this season, and TIME is my gift for them. o we have some little projects we make every day before christmas.
Like baking, making stuff, maybe go skiing (if the snow arrive)...and so on.
Here are some nice paper-bags, perfect for advent-calendar filled with some little surprises or for a little fast gift. :)
I decorated mine with cute tags punched out of patterned paper by 3ndypapir.

THANKS for popping by!!
See you!

Flotte juleidèer Gudrun. Og de papirene deres er så flotte. Bare koselig å låne bort juleidèen min.
Og helt enig med deg; flott med en adventskalender som gir tid, særlig med barna. Vi har samme prinsippet her i huset.

I almost never comment, however I browsed a few of the remarks on this page "Little giftbags and advent-calendar".
I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of the comments look as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
