Candy Bags Party

Yes, you really can make a durable, zippered pouch out of a large candy bag!! And this time of year offers lots of great bags to choose from. Join us for the Candy Bags class and learn how to transform a plastic candy bag into a usable and very unique pouch.

The size of your pouch will depend on the size candy bag you choose to use. Making it a little larger (the pictured ones are about 9″ x 7″ and 7″ x 6″) will make the process a little easier.
