Thanksgiving "Treats" *Donna Salazar*

Hello my scrappy friends! 
Its Lisa back with a new tutorial making these cute little treat bags for the holiday season. 
I guess they are great for any time of the year too. 
I was thinking about Thanksgiving in a few days and how I'm so Thankful for my "family"!
I was recently at a card convention when I seen some adorable little candy bags and I thought I don't need to buy the pre-made ones? I can just make them out of cardstock easily. :)
I was also thinking they would be great for name place cards on the table too. 
Here are 2 different colors and using Donna's fabulous new "pockets and swirls" diecuts.

Here is the one we will make today, for the thanksgiving holiday.

First, you need a piece of white cardstock 3 x 9 inches and score it at 4 & 5 inches.

Next use a punch on each edge. 
*I centered it using the lines of the punch then went out both ways.* 

Then fold on score lines and using a hole punch 
make 2 holes up on the top through both sides at once.

Using Donna's blue jean paper from "storybook"
diecut the 2 smallest pockets from "pockets and swirls"

Next distress the edges with your "zutter" for a cool jean look!
I also doodled on the lines of the smaller pocket with a white pen. 

Stamp on white cardstock with "mixd media inx"-black the word "family"
from the "banner and words" stamp collection.
I fussy cut if out and used pop dots.

Glue down the pocket and add small punches of leaves. 

In the inside add a tiny bag *jewelry size*  
punch again through the bag...dont forget your goodies!

Place ribbon through holes and give yourself some length for a bow.

Place ribbon through the front and add a bit of white lace to the top.
Your "treat bag" is ready for this holiday season!

Hope you will give them a try soon! 
They are really great as gifts, treats for school or just because! 
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with friends, family and loved ones!
