Day 1 May Arts / October Afternoon Blog Week!
Campfires and Smores go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly or Sunny and Cher. My boys are always after us to make the gooey messes when we have a campfire and I have to admit, that sometimes it just isn’t fun picking marshallows out of their hair! So, I decided to put together a more mom-friendly, less messy but just as tasty smores treat to take camping!
You only need a few basic crafting and food supplies to make these easy, quick and cute treat bags!
- Glassine Paper (or wax paper)
- ~2 feet May Arts Twisted Burlap in Green (363-16)
- ~1 foot May Arts Burlap String in Linen (SM09)
- Double Sided Patterned Paper-October Afternoon Campfire Line
- Pins or Buttons-October Afternoon Campfire Tin Pins
- Large Petitie Scalloped Circle Die –Nestabilties
- Hole Punch
- Grahm Cracker Bites
- Miniture Marshmallows
- Milk Chocoalte Chocolate Chips
To get started, create your bag from a 8.25”x6.25 piece of glassine and cut as shown in template.
Continue by scoring and assembling the glassine paper and gluing to form a bag. Cut a topper from patterned paper using your diecut and score in half.
Fill your treat bag with goodies one half to two thirds full.
Roll the bag shut and top with patterned scalloped circle. Punch one hole through all and wrap the thick burlap sting around the bag and through the topper. Knot to close.
Finish by embellishing your treat bag with a large linen burlap string bow and cute pin. These treat bags would be perfect for a Campfire themed birthday party or sleepover!
If you are giving your treat bags as a gift, why not make a handmade card to go along with your goodies? To make the above card, I punched two circles from scrap cardstock and wound the green twisted burlap onto itself, gluing as I went. I finished the card by adhering a large October Afternoon Sticker and Letter Sticker Sentiments onto a woodgrain embossed panel and then all to a kraft cardbase. Simple, fun and full of texture!
