Wrap It Up! Easy Candy Cane Gift Bag Closure

So, are you in the midst of wrapping up your holiday prep or just getting started? Either way, here's a simple and inexpensive gift wrapping trick that I use every year. You don't even need to know how to tie a bow;)

Use lunch bag style gift bags (or even plain or white lunch bags) and candy canes to wrap small gifts or treats. Average or thin candy canes work the best. I don't think the thick ones would work very well. You will also need a hole-punch and scissors.

Wrap the gift in some tissue if it needs extra cushioning. Fold over the top of the lunch bag once or twice. I usually fold it twice, but with thicker bags it can be difficult to punch holes through that many layers. Use a hole punch to make two holes 2 to 3 inches apart in the folded flap. A standard hole punch doesn't make holes quite large enough for the candy canes so I snip the bottom and sides of the holes with a the scissors and ease the candy cane through.

Add some cute tags to finish. Pictured are my Printable Rudolph Gift Tags, Landeelu's Merry & Bright Gift Tags, and the adorable Retro Christmas Gift Tags from Simple As That.

I hope this tip helps you wrap up your Christmas prep, tout de suite! lol
