Ornament Treat Bags

Hello, We R friends! Laura here today to kick off Holiday Treats week. Often around the holidays I like to bake homemade goodies, but to be honest, I don’t always have time to create something from scratch. If I can’t bake something, my next go to treat is candy – in particular, anything nostalgic. For Christmas this means candy canes, peppermint Christmas nougats, peanut brittle, or hard candies.

Today, I am going to show you how to make these adorable ornament treat bags with only a few simple supplies like the goodie bag guide. These little bags would work great as party favors or even to pass out at a class party.

Start by choosing some pretty holiday papers. Mine are all from the DCWV All About Christmas Paper Stack. Use the Goodie Bag guide to create a treat bag that is 3 ½” wide.

Before you assemble the bag, use the clear cut circle punch to cut a circle in the bottom half of the front of the bag. The clear cut punch works great for this because you can position it exactly where you want it. Assemble the bag using adhesive.

Create a 3” pouch using one of the 4” photo sleeve waterfall sleeves and your FUSE tool. Fill it with your favorite candy and then fuse the top closed.

Decorate the front of your treat bag with a ribbon, a small gold or silver rectangle, and a ribbon bow. I attached everything with my Sticky Thumb adhesive.

Place the fused candy bag inside the treat bag, fold over the top, and seal it with adhesive.

The candies make a perfect little ornament showing through on the front of the bag. You could also fill the ornament treat bag with a cookie, brownie, or any other homemade treat, as well!
