These clever little sacks are easy to make and perform double duty, holding a small gift for each of the 24 days of Advent and trimming the tree.
Grosgrain or satin ribbon
Candy or small toys
Marker or rubber stamp
Cut wide grosgrain or satin ribbon into 8- or 10-inch lengths. Fold in half. Sew up the sides on a machine; trim the tops with pinking shears.
Slip candy or small toys inside. Mark the dates on tags with a marker or rubber stamp; thread cord through tags, and tie on bags to close. Hang bags or tuck safely between branches.
