Favor/treat bags

When planning my sister's shower, I could't believe how much paper crafting had made it's way into decorating. Was a great surprise!  After all, I had most of the supplies on hand. All I had to do was pick colors and design.  I'll share some of my creations over the next week, but today I will show you my favorite - the confetti popcorn bag.

I was able to go to the party section in my craft store and buy white paper bags by the dozen for about $3.00.  They were slightly smaller than lunch bag size which was too big.  So I cut three inches off the top with my paper trimmer:

Now they were the perfect size!  The next step was to choose one of my Martha Stewart border punches.  This one is called "footlights edge."  This step is so easy - just  place the folded bag in the punch just like you would any paper and punch through all the layers.  They way it is folded, you will ended up with a perfect continuous border.

After than I just printed out "Pop Corn" on white cardstock and punched it out with my scallop punch, layering it on a larger piece of scalloped piece paper.  Underneath is a strip of ribbon I notched at the ends to make pretty.

I was so happy with the end result.  I will definitely repeat this for the kid's birthday parties!  I could see choosing other color bags and making them for whatever theme the party is.

Thanks for reading!  And Enjoy some popcorn.  Btw, the confetti popcorn recipe can be found on my Pinterest files on the "Fun Kid food"  board .
