Christmas Treat Bags

Tomorrow is my daughter's Christmas party at school, so I thought it would be fun if I sent some treat bags for her classmates. I was in a hurry (because I'm a HUGE procrastinator, and waited until today to make them...lol!) so I didn't embellish them as much as I would have liked, but they still are cute!
This was a super easy project to make, which is good because I needed a lot of them! I started with some 4x6 treat bags that I picked up at Michael's and filled them with 5 Hershey Kisses and 2 mini candy canes (plenty of sugar for a 4 year old!). While I was filling the bags, I had my Cricut cutting the toppers and oval labels. Both cuts are from Art Philosophy. The topper is <Square4> cut at 4 inches. I love the paper I used...it is an 8.5x11" stack from Hobby Lobby called Christmas Basics - such pretty patterns! I could get 4 topper cuts on each sheet, so I used several designs from the stack. I scored each topper in the center to make them easier to fold over and get them straight. The ovals are <Oval1> cut at 1.5 inches. I stamped "Merry Christmas" with a Studio G stamp I found in the dollar bin at Wal-Mart. Then all that was left was the assembly. I folded the tops of the treat bags over (these were the twist tie kind, not the ziplocks) and then folded a topper over that and stapled it on. I used my atg to attach the ovals so it would cover up the staples. Easy peasy!

I hope you liked today's project! I'm linking this up on Exploring Cricut's "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
