Reindeer Gift Wrap

1. This project works for gifts which you can put into small gift bags. The best gift bag will be one which is just a solid color, not one with patterns or pictures on it. You want the bag to be free of visual distractions.

2. Use hot glue and attach googly eyes to the front of the bag. Then add a piece of wrapped candy as a “nose.”

Cinnamon Sticks Gift Wrap
