Darling & Easy Holiday Treat Bags

Last weekend was time for another curbside garage pick up of the new August - December 2020 Mini Catalog at my home. A lovely group of customers were kind enough to drop by with masks on, to pick up their catalog and some goodies from me.  It was so great to see them in this Covid-19 time!

The Holiday Treat Bags below were one of the two treats my guests received that I designed. This new Celebration Tidings stamp set and Celebration Labels dies are perfect to make treat bags for multiple holiday occasions!  (Check back in the next few days to see the other little treat they received!)



LET'S CREATE:  First, prep the amount of clear envelopes you need by cutting off the adhesive flap portion, so you are left with just a pouch to fill with the Dollar Tree's Mrs. Field's chocolate chip cookies  (Yum-eee!) and hard Peppermint candies.

You can get 6 toppers from one sheet of the 12" x 12" Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Cut the sheet into 6 - 4" x 6" pieces and match one of the new Celebration Labels dies to best fit the 4" width. Run through your Big Shot/Die Cutting Machine. Score gently and fold the label in half to prepare the bag topper.

Repeat the cutting process with the next smaller die and the vellum cardstock pieces after you measure the die and decide upon the best layout usage of the vellum. I think I got 4 or 5 shapes from one 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. Score gently and fold the vellum label in half and slide on top of the DSP bag topper. (No adhesives are used.)

Next with the scalloped edge circle die, I die cut the amount I needed from Whisper White cardstock. Then I stamped the leaf in Pear Pizzazz ink, followed by Merry Christmas in Real Red ink. By cutting first, it allowed me to center both images.

FUN TIP! Only one staple hold the topper onto the filled clear envelope. I took both layers of the DSP and vellum and put them together on the top of the clear envelope bag, gathering the envelope slightly. I stapled through all layers where the tag should be placed to hide the single staple.  Using 2 dimensionals, I attached the circle tag over the staple centering it.  That's all there is to it!

These cute treat bags would be darling in a care package, as a favor at your holiday table, as an inexpensive gift to give co-workers, or as a thank you give for first responders even!

This new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog goes live on August 4th. The products shown below will also be live that day in the "new & improved" online store that Stampin' Up! provides to me via my Demonstrator Business Website. I can't wait to see how much easier the online store will be to navigate and shop.

Of course, you have to sample one cookie to make sure they are tasty for your guests, but try not to eat too many cookies while you make your cute treat bags! It was a struggle for me!

BE CREATIVE & HAPPY STAMPING!
