Greetings, Shellye here! I'm so excited to share with you a fun idea that I had for Doodlebug's Treat Bags! Before you begin, you will need whatever 'treat' on hand that you'd like to place into the bag. It's easy, so let's get started:
After filling the inside of the bag with candy, fold the opening as shown above. You can trim away the longer flap that is showing to the right, or leave as-is. Use a dab of quick drying glue along the opening's inside edge and hold in place until dry.
For the pom-pom top, you will need a piece of cardboard (or paper that has been folded, etc.) that measures about 2" wide. Next, begin wrapping desired Doodle Twine around the cardboard approximately 40 times. Slide the twine off as one piece.
Take a small piece of twine and tie in the middle of the loops. Cut all of the loops in half and fluff to form the pop pom. Glue to the top of the treat bag.
The bottoms of the treat bag hats were decorated in some orange crepe paper that I stitched together. Just fold a piece of crepe streamer in half and then in half again; stitch down the middle and then cut the sides into slits.
The fronts were decorated with punched circles layered with Pixie straw toppers and a Sprinkles enamel dot.
I have made this same style treat container in the past with a square of paper...this is so much easier and a lot less time-consuming. Fill a basket with them and you have an instantly colorful centerpiece!
I hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial...thanks for stopping by! Shellye
