What I have used:
I started by hand writing the numbers on the paper bags using a black marker.
Then I just added the bakers twine to the bags [mine came with punched holes already] and after that, I added stickers on the back of each bag. I love these cute whimsical stickers, they give it a little extra Christmas feel.
My stairs are always a tricky spot to decorate, so this year I’ve decided to add my garland to the banister.
I also added some fairy lights and then the little paper bags all mixed up.
My daughters are already excited for this, but I still have to fill it with little surprises which will happen this week. I usually add a few chocolates and then things like stickers, little notes, ear rings, pins, etc.
