Quick & Easy Gift or Treat Bags

These quick gift/treat bags are easy to whip up at a moment's notice. They are made from mini lunch sacks. You can also make them from regular sized lunch sacks. They make perfect treat bags for a birthday party or as gift wrap for a gift. I have made up a baby shower, get well soon & birthday bags as examples.
I used mini lunch bags that I bought at Target. They came in a set with 3 colors as shown. I also have these bags in the larger lunch size with polka dots. These are great to just have on hand for those times you need to wrap a gift quick. I think I will also make these at my son's next themed party, they would look so cute on the tables filled with party favors!

Here is what you will need to make them~

Lunch type sack of any size or color
Corner round punch
ribbon slit punch
ribbon (I used whisper white organza, certainly celery & barely banana)
card stock pieces
stamp (Stampin' Up Fast & Fun Notes)
Dazzling diamonds glitter (optional)

For my bags I used my corner rounder punch to scallop the edge while the bags were still folded. Start in the center and make your first scallop and work your way evenly to each side until the whole edge is scalloped. Then I folded over 1.5" at the top and punched a double ribbon slits for my ribbon to go through.

For my stamped images I used 3 stamps from the Fun & Fast Notes # 113500 set. I stamped in black stazon ink on whisper white card stock, colored them in with my Stampin' pastels, & added a bit of Dazzling diamonds glitter. I used a ticker corner punch then adhered to certainly celery, pretty in pink & barely banana card stock pieces using dimensionals. I finished them off with a doodle dot in each corner with a white gel pen.

Have a FAMILY day!
