Just finished the treat holders for the gals at work --- used a kraft gift bag from the dollar store to hold the treats. Decorated the front of the bags using glittered foam shamrock stickers from the dollar store - added glue dots to the backs of the shamrocks to put them on the gift bag front. Used the computer to type out their names and used circle and scalloped circle punches for those. Punched two holes in the top of the bag for my ribbon:
Here is one of the gift bags:
Inside each bag is green paper shred, also from the dollar store, and these three treat holders:
Used solid green card stock from Mikes for my baskets. I cut the basket shapes out using the Sizzix Basket #2 die. Have the handle on the basket using brads. I covered the brads with more of the glittered foam shamrocks using glue dots to put those on each basket side. Once the baskets were filled with green paper shred and various candies I put the baskets in clear bags from the candy aisle at the craft store. Tied them closed with wide green ribbon from the stash.
This next holder holds a Tootsie Pop lollipop:
Used a scallop border punch for the front of the holders. The little leprechaun is from a sticker pack from the dollar store. Tied green ribbon from the stash around the Tootsie Pop stick to keep the holder closed. This next holder holds three Hershey nugget candies:
Pattern for this nugget holder is on YouTube from "dawn5377". She has a quick video and shows all the sizes you need for your card stock pieces. Easy holder to put together.
I am not big on St. Patty's Day but I hope the gals will enjoy their treats for St. Pat's! TFL and YOLO
