Festive Christmas Treat Bags

I love to bake and give cookies and cakes at Christmas time. Pretty presentation is super important too. I mean, it's Christmas! Let's be festive and dress everything up! These festive Christmas treat bags are so pretty you won't want to give them away. These bags come together quickly and you can use up some of those fun embellishments you have lying around too! I had these flat sacks left over from another project. They are about 6.5" wide so even GIANT cookies will fit inside.  

Plaid Mod Melter
 I have been dying to try the Mod Melter for a while. It is a pretty cool tool if you have not used it yet. I recently received a set of the tools and melts from Plaid. (Thanks so much!!)  I couldn't wait to break it out and play with it.  So far I am loving the fun things I made with with! 

Mod Melter charms
There are a variety of molds you can use with the Mod Melter and LOTS of fun colors of the melts. I made a bunch of small embellishments using different molds. I left some plain and painted some of them using shiny colors.

Christmas treat bags

I had a bunch of glittery snow flakes on hand from another project. They are so pretty, but they needed a little something to finish them off. I used a tiny bit of hot glue to attach the finished pieces to the center of the snowflakes. Easy, peasy, and done. 

To decorate the bags I used the Canvas Corps Mix and Match Pad: Jolly Christmas. I LOVE the bright colors of this paper collection. The pad also includes some printed canvas, corrugated paper, and two colors of burlap sheets as well.  If you are a December Daily fan (like I am!) you will love the sheet of numbered tags in the kit.  You can purchase directly from the Canvas Corps website here.

Don't you love these prints!?!? I layered on pieces from different sheets and matted the little tag in the front to make it stand out. I also inked the pieces to give them a little more depth. 

I used a variety of ribbon to finish the bags off. Simply fold the top down, punch a couple of holes using your handy Crop-o-Dile and tie a ribbon through. I added the snowflakes with additional ribbon. 

Mod Podge charms
For a fun little touch (and because I like to add lots of stuff to my projects!) I used another sheet from the paper pad to make an acrylic tag. I used a tag from the Mod Podge Acrylic Shape set. Coat the back of the charm with Mod Podge, then settle it on the paper where you want it. Let dry, then trim away from the sheet. 

Christmas charms
Use some fun twine to attach the charm to the bag.
