The twelve days of Christmas

 I have wanted to do the twelve days of Christmas for over 30 years!

This year is the year!  I did a little research and found some ideas that I really liked.  I used Jeni Baker's pattern "Lined Drawstring Bag" and made the snack size.  I meant to make 12 of them, but somehow I only ended up with 11...That's ok, I'm just using a paper bag for the first day.  I found a cute little Nativity set on Amazon, the figures are 3" tall.  Perfect!

I think they're really cute!

This is my basket of bags, each bag has a tag on it with the name of the nativity piece and the scripture that goes along with it.

There are only 10 pieces in the nativity set, so I made some things up for Day 1 & 2.

You can see the paper bag, I have a battery candle inside and a picture of the Savior for Day 1.

Day 2 has an inspirational quote book inside.

I just love these little bags.  They are a little difficult to give away... 

I know the recipients will love getting a surprise every night and seeing their nativity come to life.

There is so much more happiness in giving than in receiving, although it's fun to receive too ❤️

It's going to be a busy 12 days, and the recipients have a RING doorbell so I'm going to have to be creative to stay anonymous :)

Enjoy every moment of preparing for Christmas ❤️
