"Sweet" Gift Bag

Many brands of sugar include a cookie recipe on the bag. This gave me the idea to make the cookies as a gift, then turn the sugar bag into the gift bag. The recipient receives a nice treat as well as the recipe all in one bag.


  • sugar bag
  • scissors
  • small bowl
  • pencil
  • cardstock
  • glue
  • yarn or ribbon


  1. I simply emptied all the sugar into my canister, then flattened the top end of the bag.
  2. Flattened sugar bag

  3. Using a small bowl, I drew 2 semi-circles that would be the bag's handles and continued the lines down to the top of the bag's graphics.

  5. I cut out inside the handles area, through front and back, and the excess around the sides.
  6. I also reinforced the inside of each handle with card stock cut to the same shape as the handles.

  8. I used a bit of red yarn to tie them together, but you could leave the handles plain.
  9. Fill your bag with sugar cookies. This one holds about 18. I wrapped them in waxed paper packets of 6.
