GCD Studios: Sweet Treat Bag Topper Tutorial with the Cricut

I love kids, GCD Studio's darling Fun House Collection, and my Cricut....and kids love sweets, so it seems only natural to combine all of those elements to create a uber-adorable Sweet Treat Bag Topper with my Cricut to make a darling little bag of treats for a child that features Fun House Collection Stickers and patterned paper.

To create a Sweet Treat Bag Topper, you'll need a selection of your favorite Fun House Collection paper and stickers, your Cricut, the Winter Woodland cartridge, white cardstock, ribbon, a five inch wide clear treat bag, adhesive, a scoring tool and a hole punch or ribbon hole punch.

With the Shadow feature selected on your Cricut cut two snowflakes (page 35 of the Winter Woodland booklet) at 5 inches. Cut one of the snowflakes from white cardstock and one from Fun House Collection patterned paper. I chose to use "The World's Greatest" for this project, because of the fun patterns and colors.

Adhere the patterned paper snowflake to the white cardstock.

Make a score mark down the center of the snowflake.

Fold the snowflake in half with the patterned paper on the outside as shown.

Embellish the treat bag with a darling sticker from the Funhouse Collection.

Fill the bag with assorted sweet treats and then place the snowflake over the top of the bag and punch with a ribbon punch. (Alternately you may punch two holes close to each other with a hole punch.)

Thread the ribbon through the holes so that both ends are positioned on the front of the bag.

Tie the ribbon into a bow and you have a quick and easy, yet very adorable gift to present to a child! :-)

For an extra special gift you can also add a card made from matching Funhouse Collection patterned paper that includes a gift card holder cut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I cut the envelope using the Tall Ball feature at 3 3/4 inches, the perfect size to hold a gift card.
