Window Pockets from Doodlebug Treat Bags

Hello Doodlebug friends! Aimee here with you today to show you how to use some of those adorable little treat bags on your layouts! They look great using them as is, but I got creative and cut out some little peek a boo windows. 

I have a quick little tutorial to show you how to re-create peek a boo windows for you own layouts or cards!

Slide a die cut inside the treat bag with the cutting surface face up. Hold it in place and up to the light to make sure you have the die cut centered. Sandwich this carefully in your plates and run through your die cut machine.

Since I used nested dies, I easily created the frame using the same die cut and the next size up. Then I jazzed up the treat bags with some Doodlebug twine, stickers, and Sprinkles.

I created some pull out tags which I adhered my pictures to the front....

and added some journaling on the back. Perfect space to say all you need to say!

Here are a couple of close ups to show some of the other fun embellishments I used on my layout which came from the Sugar Shoppe collection.

I hope I've inspired you to get those adorable treat bags out and use them on your layouts! Think outside the box and see what kind of fun creation you can come up with!
