Hello there! It’s Mendi here today with some special Memorial Day themed gifts! These sweet treat bags would be perfect to thank someone who has served in the military or just a great addition to a Memorial Day weekend BBQ! To create these I turned to one of my favorite Pebbles collections from the past year: Americana!
As a way to dress up my bags I cut out a fun handled topper from patterned paper using a Silhouette Cutting file and created a clear window in my bags to show some patriotic cookies.
Now I must confess… I was really trying to make THESE beautiful cookies on Pinterest to show through my little window, but my talents are obviously not in the kitchen. Somehow my white dough got lost in the middle and I ended up settling for more of a marbled look.
To create the window in my glassine bags I centered a scalloped circle die from the Homemade collection approximately one inch from the bottom edge and secured it with washi tape to keep it from shifting while running it through my die-cutting machine.
I then slid a slightly smaller clear plastic party bag down the center to hold my cookie. It was super easy and yet I think the window adds a special detail to the project!
Here’s one last look at the completed treat bags. I tried to keep them simple to make them easy to mass produce for a party. I think these would also make great take home treats for a child’s birthday!
