Today’s project is another super fun and super easy craft that you can make for your Christmas party, as class treats or gifts, or even as favors for your Winter wedding! So let’s get started with our Festive Flurry Treat Bags!

You Will Need:
– Small food safe bags, such as glassine (used here) or cello bags. The size bag I used here is a 3″ x 5.5″ glassine bag. You can purchase the glassine bags I used in My Scraps of Life Etsy Shop.
– Two pieces of Winter Frost DSP
– Whisper White card stock to stamp and die cut
– Festive Flurry stamp set
– Festive Flurry framelits dies
– Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad
– Rhinestone Basic Jewels
– Square punch (I used my 1″ square punch, but you can go bigger or smaller depending on what you have)
– Mini clothespin

1. Cut strips of Winter Frost DSP and create banner end by punching with your square punch. Just slide one end of the strip into a corner of the square punch and punch out a small triangle from the end of the paper strip. This will create that nice end to your banner strip. If you don’t have a square punch, just use some scissors or paper snips to cut the end of the paper strips. NOTE: The size of your DSP strips will depend on the size of your treat bag as you will want to keep things proportional. For the size treat bag I used, I cut my DSP into strips measuring 1-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and 1″ x 2-1/2″, then punched the ends to create the banners. If you’re using a larger size treat bag, you will want your strips to be longer and thicker.
2. Adhere banners together, like shown.
3. Stamp small snowflake image on white card stock and die cut using coordinating framelits die. Embellish with a rhinestone in the center of snowflake.
4. Adhere snowflake to banners using a Stampin’ Dimensional or foam tape.
5. Fill treat bag with treat or small gift, fold top over and use mini clothespin to attach banners to bag and to keep the bag closed.

In just 5 easy steps you will have some fabulous looking treat bags that you’ll be excited to share. And you can create multiples of these in just minutes! Great last minute packaging idea if you’re in a rush.

Design Alternatives:
– This is a great design that you can adapt for any holiday or occasion. I made treat bags almost identical to these for 4th of July favors, using blue and red DSP strips and a star instead of a snowflake. Try making some for Valentine’s Day or Halloween! It’s a great way to use up some of your old DSP stash and make great treats at the same time!
– Take this design concept and go big! Wrap up bigger treats or gifts and just scale up the decoration and embellishments! Use larger strips of DSP and a larger focal point like a bigger snowflake or another larger shape/image.
– Use a different item to hold your bags closed. Try the adorable Hardware Clips Essentials or Hung Up Cute Clips in the new Idea Book & Catalog. Those would make great little embellishments that could double as a bag closure.
