Gnome Treat Bags

Hi everyone! Yes, I know it’s almost Christmas but I wanted to share this easy treat bag for Christmas. Every year, my family has a Secret Santa gift exchange and I like to create little treat bags for the event.

The easiest way to create treat bags is by using dies, when producing in mass and when you just don’t have time to color.

Gnomes have been such a big hit this season and I also fell into the trend. I actually ordered the Simon Says Stamp Large Gnome die when I saw a gnome in their card kit. I didn’t actually realize there was a smaller one as well but I was perfectly content with the one I got (I might even get the smaller one for next year).

I did a bunch of die cutting 12 gnomes using random Christmas pattern paper I have that I only can use up once a year to create the gnomes. I also did do a bunch of cutting out of white cardstock. For the gnome, I colored up his nose and his beard so the coloring is definitely at a minimum.

Once I was done with the gnomes, I moved on to my treat bag topper using My Favorite Things Stamps’ Treat Bag die. I cut out 12 of these and went ahead to stamp using Lawn Fawn – Let it Snow stamp set to give the topper a snowy background.

For my main sentiment, I used Trinity Stamps’ Merry Christmas stamp set. I only could use the large Merry sentiment paired with the smaller Christmas font.

Once the gnomes and treat bag toppers were completed, it was assembly time and this part went really quickly to create 12 goodie bags for my Secret Santa event.

I know Christmas is basically here, but I hope it gives you inspiration for an easy goodie bag in the future or for any fun occasion!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
