Teacher Treat Bag

Hi ya friends,
I wanted to share the end of the year gifts (well, the packaging, really)  I gave to the teachers in my department. I wanted to give them a small token of appreciation for all the great work they do. I didn't have a lot of time and I needed to make seven of them, so this is what I came up with that was quick & cute!
Here they are:


 They're all the same except for the pattern on the bags. They are embossed *Ü*
I thought embossing the little Kraft paper bags took them from simple to simply beautiful! I reeeeally liked how they came out & best of all it was so super simple to do!

Here's what I did:
 I bought the little bags at Mike's. They measure 3 1/2" x 2" x 6 3/4". They come in many colors, but Kraft goes with everything *Ü*

First, you take the base flap and fold back it so that the 2 flaps meet:

Next, choose your embossing folder and tuck it in. I used the large 5 x 7 folders, but...
...you can use the smaller A2 folders by running it through twice, pulling it through the slit at the top. (as shown below).
 Here's the end result:
Isn't that preeeetty! Couldn't be easier.

Here's one last look at a completed bag:
I used the Good Apple stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the chalkboard. I wrote a little message on the back of the little chalkboard tag for each of them & attached it with a cork board clip from Mike's as well (they're on clearance *Ü*)

 Back view:
I put some treats and a Starbucks gift card inside.

I hope I've inspired you to emboss your treat bags and send those teachers off to summer vacation with a smile!

Thanks for peeking today!
Tootles,
