Granola Gift Bags

The kids and I made a couple of batches of granola to give out to our neighbors for a little Christmas treat. Warning: this granola is VERY addicting! The recipe is from my sister-in-law, Sarah. For our family, I always make a nut-free version, due to the kids' food allergies, and load it up with dried fruit instead. Either way is very tasty!

The bags are from Nashville Wraps and have a laminated clear inner liner and tin tie. I simply added the Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon and the star (from Classic Backgrounds) with silver elastic cord. And a candy cane for good measure! :)

Since our kids have food allergies, I am an instinctive label reader. I thought it would be nice to include a label with a list of ingredients and Christmas wishes. We delivered 7 bags this morning!
Stamps: Classic Backgrounds
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon, silver elastic cording, Lage Star punch, 1/16" hole punch, candy cane, tin tie coffee bag

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe...these are adorable. I'll make the no-nut recipe for a dear neighbor that has an allergy as well. Merry Christmas!
