KRAFTY TIPS & TUTS - Holiday Treat bag

Hi Everyone!!
Krafty girl Elisabete here and I'm showing you how to make some real cute Holiday treat bag using the adorable Happy Winter Days stamp set. These are great for teachers, co-workers or kids parties.  I love to make these for my Holidays parties and have one on each person's plate.

Start with a piece of heavy-weight cardstock cut to 4.25" x 11". (That's half of a standard sheet of cardstock, so you can make two of these from one sheet!) Score the cardstock at 1", 5.25", and 6.75" as shown below.

The second panel from the left will be the front of the treat bag.  On the front panel  I used a circle die (or you can use a punch) to cut out a circle from the center of the panel.  On this panel I decorated the front by stamping the little ornaments with a read ink pad. 

Next, we need to cut a notch in the top of the treat bag. Fold the score line between the 1" panel and the front panel, and mark the center. Using a 1" circle punch or die, cut a half-circle notch

Another half-circle notch needs to be cut at the opposite end of the cardstock, so that the unassembled treat bag will look like this:

Now it's time to fill your treat bag! I use the Wilton brand Clear Party Bags for these. They measure about 4" x 9" and fit perfectly inside the cover. Fill the bag about halfway with the goodies of your choice, then twist the top of the bag and insert it through the circular notch. Fold the cardstock so that the half-circle notch meets up with the circular notch at the top. Fold the 1" flap down over the back and adhere with double tape, or any kind of adhesive you like/use. I use the TomBow dot tape runner.

I stamped the wreath from the Happy Winter Days and colored it with Copics, fussy cut and adhered it to the front of the opening.  Stamped the little sentiment and glued as well. 

Finish but tying it all with a little bit of ribbon and there you have it! 

Super cute little treat bag.  You can do these for any occasion like Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc.. Just change the colors and sentiments.  Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps have so many sets that would be perfect to use. 

Thank you all for checking out my little tutorial!!
