Christmas Blog Hop!Wednesday, December 07, 2016
Hello! Welcome to the final stop on our Christmas Blog Hop! You probably have arrived from Fran's blog, and if you haven't visited all the stops, I'll be giving you a list at the end of this post so you can double check that you've seen all the great Christmas ideas!
Today I'm sharing some easy Treat Bag Toppers made from the Christmas Past Paper Pack, various colors of Cardstock , the Christmas Quartet Punch and basic scrapbooking tools.
I have two boys in elementary school who both still enjoy bringing treats to their friends for holidays and special occasions, so I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for treat bags. Since I'm focusing on trying to use up all the Christmas Past products I've purchased, I came up with a plan to use the printed border paper from the Christmas Past Paper pack for this year's treat bags.
Treat Bag Toppers are so versatile - the basic idea is to fill a clear plastic or cellophane bag with treats (candy, cookies, trinkets), seal the bag closed and then add decorations to the top that fit the theme or holiday. I'll give you the measurements I used, but your final measurements will depend on the bag you are using. And although the steps are pretty self-explanatory, I did create a video to show you the basic steps. Grab a beverage and take a break while you watch!
Cute and EASY! For those of you who prefer to read through the instructions:
You could totally use up some scraps and smaller pieces to make these. Get creative with the supplies you have...each one can be unique! I think the most important thing is to give out the treat bags with lots of warm wishes for the season!
