Supplies for Treat Bag

Stamp Set: Evergreen Elegance (153313)

Inks: Evening Evergreen (155576), Real Red (147084), Daffodil Delight (147094)

Cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 11″: Real Red (102482),Evening Evergreen (155574), Basic White (159276)

Misc: Evening Evergreen 3/4″ Open Weave Ribbon (155573), Holiday Rhinestones (150457) – TIP: if you don’t have these, use Basic Rhinestone Jewels colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker (light or dark will work), Stitched Rect, lunch sack


Real Red cardstock: cut one piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock in half – use one piece for front (you’ll stamp on this one) and one for the back (I stamped “merry christmas” on the back, as shown in my video; 2 1/2″ x 4″ – for layer on front (cut with 5th largest die-starting with the largest one and counting down)

Evening Evergreen cardstock: 3″ x 4 1/2″ (you need a piece large enough to cut out using the 4th largest die in Stitched Rectangles

Basic White:2″ x 3 1/2″ – you will stamp tree on this piece (3rd largest die)


Stamp your sentiment or image all over one piece of the RR cardstock. I used the Stamparatus in the video but you can use stamps on a block or wood stamps, too. You can stamp something on the piece of RR that will go on the back, or leave it plain. You could also write a message to the recipient of your gift!

Using the Everyday Label Punch, punch out opening in top of both pieces.

Cut your lunch sack at 6″ (from the bottom)

Attach Real Red pieces to front of lunch sack using Stampin’ Seal (be careful to fold down the bag when yo attach the piece to the back so you don’t put glue on the bottom of the sack).

Cut all your pieces for the front, using the dies mentioned in the measurements above.

Stamp tree in Evening Evergreen ink, leaving room to “ground” your tree with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends marker and to stamp the star at the top.

Stamp star and attach rhinestones as desired.

Attach all layers together with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then attach stamped unit to lunch sack using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Fill up your bag with treats and then tie shut with ribbon.

That’s it! Easy…Peasy…Done!


I used one package of white chocolate almond bark and put 3 squares in each of 4 small bowls. This makes it easier to melt in the microwave. Mix an 18 oz box of corn or rice chex mix, 20 oz bag of mini pretzels, about 18-20 cups of popcorn (pop your own or buy ready popped like Skinny Pop at the grocery store), and a large package of M and M’s (Christmas ones of course) together. You can use a big mixing bowl, or take a clean tablecloth and do it on your kitchen table. Kids can join in the fun; everyone should use gloves! Then drizzle the chocolate over the top and stir (or mix with hands) well to coat everything. Work quickly so it is all coated and then let it sit for about an hour before you portion out into containers or zippy bags. That’s it!
