You can use any round "candy cane" candy for these printables. We bought a huge container of these light and airy ones that sure did make a lot of gift bags!
I used 5 inch square snack baggies, but I made the bag topper for download in two sizes, the second for standard sandwich bags because they are commonly found. I printed on regular paper and stapled it to the bag to keep the project simple. Cardstock or other papers of your choice could be used. After I printed, I cut the paper in half (there are two prints per piece of paper) and then folded the design in half before cutting so that the edges would be even. Because I used regular paper, I could see through the paper to line up the edges of the design.
The downloads are in .pdf format on letter size paper.
