Holiday Treats

Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing with you some treat bags I made and finished with just enough time to photograph and pile them into the car for our Christmas Eve celebration with family!  The photos have sat untouched in the camera since then, and just this morning I realized I never posted them.  Oh well, the concept is just as good for Valentine's day, birthdays, etc. just update the papers and the embellishments and away you go!

There's the group shot and I'll show some close-ups below of my favorite designs.  For the treat bags, I used the Fancy Bag #2 Cutting Files from Kelleigh Ratzlaff and cut them out with my Cricut and SCAL software.  The papers were from my Christmas stash - a mixture of Echo Park Merry Christmas Collection and Fancy Pants, I think.


To embellish, I just used some inexpensive curling ribbon from our gift wrapping stash, then cut the Snowflake die from TCP in cream and punched a Martha Stewart large snowflake from some glittery red paper, and layered over the curling ribbon and adhered with Zip Dry so it would stay put.

The tag is a die cut from Spellbinders and I stamped the Holiday JOY sentiment from Holiday Phrases  {currently 50% off through 12/31!} in Cherry Cobbler then clipped on with a library clip from SU!  The clip does dual duty of keeping the bag closed as well!  I filled each bag with a mixture of holiday chocolates and was ready to go!

Hope you enjoyed this little project!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. These are beautiful!! I'm intrigued with your comment about using your Cricut and "SCAL" software to cut the template...what is this SCAL software and how do you get/use it? I have a Cricut and love it, but I'd love to hear more about software that adds even more to its functionality! Thanks,
