Let me just start by saying, aren't the downloads this week fantastic? (Trust me on this one—you should get your hands on all of them.) The Best Year Photobook Template may be the best ever download! I love everything about it. And I love the Holiday List of All Lists because I could use all the help I can get to stay organized during the holidays.
Speaking of the holiday lists, I need to get started on gifts for my neighbors, friends, and co-workers. I started thinking about a couple of fun ideas I've seen on Pinterest:
Then, all the sudden a great idea “popped” into my head. What if I printed Designer Series Paper from the Winter Wonders Kit on a white bag and put popcorn in it? (I was really excited!) And, here’s what I came up with.
I used Designer Series Paper in an 8-1/2" x 11" project and printed it directly onto the paper bag using my home printer. This takes a little practice. You can tape the bag directly to the center of some paper to feed it through a little easier. Also, I cut about an inch off the top of the bag so it fit the pattern better. I can’t guarantee that this works with all printers, but give it a try!
Then, I created a tag with instructions for the popcorn and covered a clothespin with another pattern. (Make sure your friends remove the clothespin before they pop the popcorn.) There you have it, a quick and easy start to holiday gift giving.

UPDATE: I was nervous after I read some of your comments about microwaves, so I looked into it some more. I found out that printing ink can contain traces of metal, and could harm your microwave. After learning that, I don’t think it’s a good idea to put a printed bag in your microwave. I’m so sorry! Good thing you questioned me. I’m so embarrassed. I hope you’ll forgive me and find other ways to try out some of the aspects of this project.
