Easy Cello Bag Treats

Have you seen the new Cellophane Bags in the Holiday Mini Catalog

Cello bags 124134L

These skinny, clear, 1" x 8" bags are perfect for filling with a row of colorful treats.  The top, resealable flap keeps everything inside the bag.  Then, add a punch, die-cut and other embellishments, and you have a quick treat, party favor, or gift topper!

I created three cute treats, one for each of the coming holidays, filled with M&M's.  It only took me a few minutes to make them (it took me longer to sort M&Ms colors and get those in the bags—haha!).  You could also use Skittles, licorice, Nerds, Tiny Tarts, a pen or pencil, a bracelet, anything that's narrow and small!

Best of all, there are 50 cello bags per package for only $2.50!  Fast, fun, and inexpensive!

After closing the cello bags, I folded a 2×4" piece of card stock over the top, adhered with one line of Sticky Strip down the center (going length-wise, not on the fold).  I wanted it to stick well, but still come off easily when the recipient wanted to try out their treats!

Doily triple punch 122465L I especially love the layered snowflake look of the Doily Triple Layer Punch.  Three different shapes from one punch!  You can see a quick tutorial of how to use this awesome punch from MyStampLady.com.

Triple Layer Punch Tips

  • Unlock the punch (on the bottom) before selecting your desired shape with the lever on the back.
  • Lay the punch on a sturdy table to punch it, rather than holding in your hands.
  • It won't feel like you've punched all the way for the first two shapes.  Listen and you'll know.  You'll hear 1 clunk when you punch one layer, 2 for the second layer, and 3 for the third layer.   
  • Slide the lever to the far right (most intricate shape) before locking the punch.
