Take a 9x12 sheet of felt and cut it in half longways with decorative scissors (you can use straight cut scissors, too). Then fold in half short ways. Sew 1/4 inch seam with machine or by hand or glue side openings only, to close. Leave the top open. Makes a nice little gift bag. Decorate as desired. Let your imagination go wild :)
I put zipper plastic bags inside with 1 cup of flavored coffee creamer or chocolate mix and tie with covered elastic (in the holiday ribbon section at WalMart). I placed a sticker on the zipper bag with name of ingredients and directions for use. I then placed a sticker on the outside of the felt bag with the name of what was inside. Makes a cute stocking stuffer or small gift. Also, it is another idea for craft shows for the holidays. I make my own "gourmet" mixes to put inside.

I would love to see a picture of these, they sound great.
Great idea, Hvnlyhills!!! Thanx for the idea :)
If you are looking for paper for crafts, try finding a newpaper company or paper company in your town, usually when a paper company is finished with a roll of paper, they throw it away, & usually there is quite a bit of paper leftover on the roll. Sometime it is NOT news print paper.
