Pumpkin Treat Bag

Happy Wednesday to you all! Can you tell I am having a wonderful week? Ü My son is coming home from college and we will all be home together for a few days before he goes back. I can't wait!

I love these simple little treat bags. I first saw how to  do this on Splitcoaststampers and am going to do a little tutorial for those of you who like to see steps.

1. Supply list:
mini paper bag cut down to 4.5" tall - mine measures 4 1/8" x 7.75"(you can do this with any size, but will need to cut your papers to fit your bag)
2 solid cardstock 4 1/8" x 6"
1 patterned paper piece 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" 
Slot paper punch
design element (optional)
Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent

1. Adhere patterned paper to front of one solid piece

2. Apply adhesive to back of ribbon and place at top edge of patterned paper, wrapping edges to the back

3. Apply adhesive to one side of paper sack and adhere to back of front panel

4. Adhere adhesive to back of paper bag and lining up 2nd piece of solid cardstock, adhere to bag

5. Punch "handle" to center top of solid cardstock (tip: from the piece cut from the top of the bag, punch oval shape. With a tiny bit of adhesive, adhere to front where you want opening and punch again through front and back pieces)

6. Add design element (I used a sticker from Imaginations)

7. Fill with goodies and give away Ü
