Hello, it's Kati from Houseful of Handmade. It's only 1 week until the big day! Are you ready for Christmas? I am so close, but I still have to finish up the last few little gift, like neighbor gifts. I love doing sweet treats for all our friends, who doesn't love something sweet this time of year?
So we decided to give out our favorite treat, popcorn! I created these fun Popping In Christmas printable gift tags to wish our friends a Merry Christmas and am so excited to share them with you today!
Our family is highly addicted to caramel popcorn. Seriously, my husband asks for it almost every night after dinner. So why not share the love this year. Who doesn't love curling up to a movie with a bag of sweet caramel popcorn? Giving a bag of your favorite popcorn is a great way to say Merry Christmas! My favorite popcorn for the season is this Melted Rudolph Popcorn, or my all time favorite recipe is this classic Soft & Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn. Both of these recipes only take 10 minutes to make!
How to make Popping In Christmas Printable Gift Tag
These adorable printable gift tags were created to top off a brown paper lunch bag full of popcorn. I love the simple chalkboard look that you can use with any color of lunch bag and then tie it off with your favorite ribbon or string. I used the classic brown bag and tied it off with some red striped butcher's twine.
To close up the bag with the printable gift tag, you'll want to print the tags on cardstock and cut them out. I like to prepare the bags for the tag before filling them with popcorn, so start by folding over about 1 ½ inches on the top.
Then center the gift tag over it and punch 2 holes on the top through the tag and all layers of the bag.
Now it is time to fill it up with delicious popcorn. Then refold your bag and tie your gift tag to it with a string. Tie a bow or knot and you are ready to share some Christmas goodies. Yum!
These bags of sweets are perfect for a simple gift, but you can easily add more to your gift if you want to. Add a Redbox gift card for a couple nights of fun, or add your favorite Blue-ray or DVD. You can also pair it with some $1 boxes of candies and tickets to your local movie theater for a night out!
The hardest part of putting these gifts together is keeping the family from eating all the popcorn before you can deliver it. My family managed to eat the entire recipe of Mint Chocolate Chip Popcorn in about an hour. They didn't even save me any. Good thing I sneaked a few handfuls while I was stirring it together.
