Welcome to day 21 of 15 Minute Craft Projects.

It’s the season for gift and treat giving so why not make the packaging special too. Between now and Christmas it seems like there is always a reason to give a little gift to a neighbor, teacher, church class, student, or friend. I like pretty packaging even if the gift is just a cookie or food gift. These Cookie Treat Bags are fast and easy to make because they start with a pre-cut bow. They can also be used for any kind of treat or little gift.

Cookie Treat Bags

Supplies needed:

Paper gift bags
Doilies
Gems
Pre-cut bows (available at Target)

Cookie Gift Bag.1

Punch out the bows. If you want to make your own they are fairly simple but it will take you longer than 15 minutes to make several of the bags. You can also find pre-cut bows at many craft stores. I didn’t like how much space was in the center of the bow so I folded it to make it smaller. Fold both sections of the bow. I also opted not to use the small center piece and used a gem in the center instead.

Cookie Gift Bag.2

There are 2 different ways to secure the bow pieces together. I used glue dots in this first example. Gluing all the sections together.

Cookie Gift Bag.4

In this example I used one staple to secure all the pieces together. This method was much faster and I like how the center of the bow turned out more flat.

Cookie Gift Bag.5

Don’t worry about the staple showing it will be covered by the gem. Secure the gem to the bow using a glue dot.

Cookie Gift Bag.6

The clear gems in the supply picture were too small so I exchanged them for the larger purple ones. These bows have a different pattern on the other side so you can mix them if you like.

Cookie Gift Bag.7

Fold the top of the bag over, then fold the doily in half and place it over the top of the folded bag.

Cookie Gift Bag.8

Attach the bow to the doily using a glue dot. You will also need to use a glue dot on the back of the bag to attach the doily to the bag.

Cookie Gift Bag.9

Leave the bag as is or add a message to the front with vinyl. You could also use stickers to write a message.

Cookie Gift Bag.10

Fill the bags with cookies or other treats before attaching the doily and bow to the top.

Cookie Gift Bag.12

They’re ready for gift giving.
