I had to think of a quick and easy little treat for all my nieces and nephews. So, late Christmas Eve I started whipping up these bags. I had to keep them fairly simple because I have 11 nieces and nephews in total, and very little time to whip up my treat bags. I picked up these bags on clearance at Target. I added some patterned paper to the top/opening of each bag, then added some laces and trims, a bow, a chipboard element, and then tucked lots of candy into each one. They were a big hit since my nieces and nephews take after me - they all LOVE candy!
Oh, and then I found all the bags in the garbage, and the candy stuffed in their pockets.....and mouths! No, I wasn't offended. They're just kids after all. But I did remove the chipboard pieces and saved them to use again in the future. Knowing what they cost, I just couldn't let them be thrown away....LOL!
I'm going to enter my treat bags in the following challenges:
