Christmas Treat Bags & Recipe

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with handmade treat bags for giving a homemade sweet treat, plus scroll down for the recipe if you want to make some yourself! The Scallop Goodie Bag Guide, along with Glassine 12×12 Papers make quick and easy treat bags. I always say that making these projects is easy, but We R Memory Keeper’s tools really do make beautiful and thoughtful gift-giving simple!

I started with the snowflake glassine paper from the Holiday Classics pack along with the Scallop Goodie Bag Guide. Following the easy instructions included with the tool, my basic treat bags were done in minutes.

To begin, the food-safe glassine paper is torn along the guide, both at the top and bottom of the paper. This guide leaves a scallop finish to the edges. Then the straight edge is used to create the folds. Adhere the edges closed, and the bag is finished.

After making the treat bags, I decorated the fronts. On both bags strips of Chevron Washi Tape were added. On this bag chipboard heart stickers and a “xoxo” sticker was used. I love the gold shine from the stickers! So, festive!

On this bag, I spelled out “for you” with Thickers. A starburst closure and a gold bow finished things off.

Once my treat was put inside the bag, I closed the bag with a sticker. It’s a nice finishing touch.

Inside each of the bags is homemade caramel popcorn. It’s a special family treat that was always made to enjoy on Christmas Eve at my great-aunt’s house. As we waited for Santa to arrive, she would fill bowls full of popcorn. It’s a tradition and memory that brings a smile to my face every time. I have shared the recipe with you below. It’s a sweet treat meant for sharing!
