Packaging up the Pumpkin Scones

I usually give food gifts to my bosses and co-workers and this year one of the things I made was pumpkin scones. I needed a way to wrap them and came up with this idea.

I used large kraft coffee bags from PTI and decorated them using the Santa from Around Christmastime and a sentiment from Twas the Night before Christmas - both from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
The gold bell, ferns and snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches.
These pumpkin scones are absolutely delicious - I found the recipe on Mara's blog here - they come out soft inside - (not hard and crunchy like some scones that you have to dip in tea just to be able to chew them! LOL!) My co-workers loved them as well!

So if you need an idea for food packaging - maybe my post is in time for you to whip one up for Christmas giving!!?? or you could at least make the yummy scones!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Around Christmastime, Twas the Night before Christmas
Paper: Pure poppy, white - PTI, Gold - unknown, Handsome Hunter - SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Martha Stewart punches - snowflake, bell, fern, Nestabilities - large scalloped circles, circles, Copics: R29, R20, E00, red brad - Basic Grey, brown bag - PTI, foam tape.
