Treat Bags

P9040207 Every year I like to make a little something for the ladies in my family. This year I decided to make homemade turtles, but I wanted to wrap them up in something fun. I started playing with the idea of a treat bag and came up with this. I used my Silhouette to cut the template for the bag, but you could just as easily create this with a Cricut file or hand cut and fold it.

The trick to making this bag fun and unique is the window cut into the bag. Again, I used my Silhouette to cut the window, but your Cricut or a large punch like this one from EK Success would work really well, too. Use clear plastic (acetate, vellum, etc.) to cover the window (from the inside of the bag). Stamp on the window using a permanent ink like White Staz-on, or stamp with Versamark, cover in white embossing powder, and heat set.
