Christmas Goodie Bags

Hey friends, Laura here today! One of my favorite things to make is little goodie bags to hold treats. The Goodie Bag Guide makes it so easy to do out of any paper you have on hand, so you can coordinate it perfectly to the holiday or party theme of your choice.

My go to set up for a small goodie bag is to create the bag, add a couple of banner pieces in coordinating colors, find a die cut that matches the theme, and then add a sentiment. I then either tie, staple, or clip the bag closed. This design is a cohesive way to pull together any theme.

To create a smaller sized bag (3.5” wide), start by trimming your paper to 8” wide. You can use a paper trimmer or the straight edge of the goodie bag guide. Line up your paper using the 8” marks as your guide and tear along the top and bottom of your paper.

Use the goodie bag guide to create the folds for your bag and assemble the bags together using adhesive. You can make a lot of bags in a short period of time. It is easiest to make the bags using a thinner paper. Cardstock and double-sided patterned paper are more difficult to tear and fold.

After I have my bags created, I made two banner pieces for each bag. I did one that is a little wider and shorter, and a second one that is longer and thinner. Trim your paper to the width you would like and use the banner punch board to create the V-shape in the bottom of the banner. Then, use your paper trimmer to cut the banner to the length you want.

To add a Merry Christmas sentiment, I created a small tag using the Clear Cut punch.

I added some Crate Paper stickers that said “Merry Christmas” to each one.

Fill up your bag with a special treat. I love these little gummy Christmas wreaths! They are festive and super delicious.

Fold the top of the bag over. Layer on the two banner shapes, plus a Christmas die cut ephemera piece. Add on the little tag and clip everything together using a decorative paper clip.

These little goodie bags are perfect for stocking stuffers, class parties, or even as a decorative way to give a gift card. Add in a few yummy treats with the gift card, and I know it will be well received.
