hello and Enjoy! Gift Card Holders or Treat Bags

Since I participated in a Craft Fair at my daughter's preschool last week, I thought I would share this treat bag/gift card holder with you today.  I found this idea on Stampin' Up!'s blog and loved how bright and colorful it was and how simple they are to create.  In this season of gift giving, you may be looking for a quick and simple way to present your thoughtful gift.  This is one way to present those awesome gift cards everyone loves to receive!
Inside of Treat Bags - A card that you can add a handwritten note or stamp a sentiment on.
These treat bags/gift card holders are so simple to make.  Use Stampin' Up!'s Chevron or Polka Dot bags as the envelope or treat holder.  Add a banner in bright colors with a simple sentiment punched out with the 2 1/2" circle punch and layered on top of tea lace paper doilies.  If you want to add a little embellishment, add a little bit of ribbon behind the circle punch or layer two different ribbons on top of each other as I did above.  To adhere the banner to the chevron or polka dot envelope or bag, just attach with a mini clothespin.  For the inside, add a simple Whisper White layer to a bright card base punched out at the bottom with an edge border punch.  Quick, simple and easy way to present a thoughtful gift this holiday season.
