Learn How to Make Easy Neighbor Gifts!
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is making neighbor gifts each year! I love to bake delicious desserts around the holidays and I’m always looking for a cute way to wrap them up and deliver them to my neighbors!
I knew I wanted to use my Cricut Maker this year to make something extra special! I came up with a really easy no-sew project that comes together quickly and is the perfect way to dress up a simple gift. The hardest part of this project is deciding what to fill these cute bags with!!!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Let’s get started!
Cut a piece of fabric 12 x 24 inches.
Lay the fabric on the pink fabric mat and smooth it with your hands to make sure it is fully attached.
Load the mat it into the Maker, select cotton fabric and use the rotary blade to cut.
The Maker will cut two bags per mat.
Once the Maker has finished cutting the fabric, unload the mat and gently pull the fabric up. You will have two rectangles with a zig-zag edges.
The zig-zag will prevent the fabric from fraying so that the seams won’t need to be finished.
Lay the fabric with the right side facing down and draw a line along the long sides of the fabric with a hot glue gun.
Fold the fabric in half so that the right side is facing the outside.
Press down along the seams to secure the fabric and glue together.
Load the green felt sheets next to cut out the holly leaves. You will be cutting out one light and one dark shade of green felt.
To assemble the holly leaves, place the lighter shade of green on top of the darker color. I like to offset them ever so slightly. With a piece of embroidery thread sew a backstitch to give the leaves veins.
Take two sets of leaves and a single darker leaf and adjust them into a fan-like shape and glue them to the lower left-hand side of the fabric pouch.
Glue three small wool balls on top of the leaves.
Fill the bag with goodies and tie the top with a ribbon or a string!
