When the Holiday Catalog first came out and I saw two of the products in there, I knew that I could combine them into one cute & fun project…

What are those products?  The stamp set Santa’s List and Mini Muslin Bags…

Where can you find them?  Both are featured in the Holiday Catalog:

  • Santa’s List is on pg 31 – click HERE to find it!
  • Mini Muslin Bags are on pg 36 click HERE to find them THEY ARE ON SALE THROUGH MONDAY 18th FOR JUST $7.46 A PACK!!!

So what project did I have in mind?  This one here – a sack of chocolate ‘coal’!  It is so much fun to make and sooo easy – no special ink required – you can stamp on these little bags using any ink pads that you have!  Click on the photo for a larger view…

These would make fantastic treats for kids & grown-ups alike and it would take no time at all to make a batch of them!  I plan to make some of my girls & their friends & teachers too!

The bag…Mini Muslin Bags come in a pack of 8 and are super simple to stamp on – I used Stazon Black Ink to stamp my Santa and sentiment because I love the crispness of the images that ink produces but you can use absolutely ANY ink you like – any of the Classic Pads would work just fine!

Isn’t that cute?!

I filled my bag with some chocolate ‘coal’ that I found in my local grocery store – I have seen this in Target & Walgreens too in previous years – it is made called ‘Palmer Double Crisp Coal’ and cost 99c for a bag – LOVE it!

And those bags have a drawstring at the top making it very easy to seal your goodies in place!

The tags…I wanted to make a simple tag to attach to the top and so I stamped the ‘Ho Ho Ho’ wording using Real Red ink and a stamp from Oh, Goodie! (pg 32 Holiday Catalog) and shaped it using the banner die from Circle Card Thinlits – – the other tag uses the other stamp featured in Santa’s List – I stamped that using Black ink and punched it out using my Word Window Punch (pg 180)…

I then made a small hole and threaded through a piece of Linen Thread to tie this to my sack of coal – and that is it – a very simple and very fun project that takes minutes to make!

Here are the images that you get in that super cute Santa’s List:
