Treat Bag Cover Holders

Hello Crafty Friends!
Happy December! I hope you're enjoying all the holiday festivities and the spirit of Christmas!
I would like to share a fun treat bag cover holder with you! I made two different treat bag covers for my Santa's Workshop projects that will be held in my home this week! I am excited to paper-craft with my peeps! This is the biggest party of the year! I include dinner, holiday projects, bingo for CTMH products, and a fun drawing! We have so much fun! I thought it would be fun to share these projects here, so you can enjoy creating them for yourself, neighbor's, customers, and friends and family! 

Here's the instructions:
1. Cut a piece of cardstock color of your choice @ 4 1/4" x 11". 
2. Cut a piece of B&T paper of your choice @ 4" x 4".
3. Score the cardstock @ 1", 5 1/4", and 6 3/4". Fold all scoring lines with a bone folder. 
4. Glue the 4" x 4" B&T paper between the 1" and 5 1/4" scoring lines shown below, leaving a 1/4" on all sides. 
5. Using a 1" thin cut and die- cutting machine or 1" punch, cut a half-circle notch. The 1" circle should be cut centered on top of the 1" scoring line. Measure a 1/2" from the bottom of the circle notch and place your 2 1/2" circle thin cut. I use washi tape to secure the circle to the paper. That way it doesn't slide. Cut it out with your die-cutting machine. Make sure you save the center circle to be used for a tag. 
6. Now you're ready to decorate the front flap. You can use anything you have on hand! Just make sure not to cover the circle, so you can see the bag and treats popping through. 

7. You can use a 3" x 8" or 4" x 9" cello bag. 
Just simply add your treats. (This one I used 
freeze dried marshmallows and a hot cocoa packet)
You can add candy, chocolates, cookies, caramel popcorn, M&M's, 
and much more. Once you add the goodies, you will push the cello bag through the notch at 
the top and tie a ribbon, jute, or twine to the top of the cello bag. You can also add a cute tag before tying it too!

8. Make sure you flip the 1" flap over to the backside and secure with 
two Velcro circles. This will help hold it in place.

9. How fun to use the centers for tags! I used a retired circle tag thin cuts
for the back. Just glue to a larger circle or thin cut, add some fun embellishments, and stamp a holiday sentiment! So cute!!
