More Treat Bags

I was really ahead of the game this year. Because my ankle surgery was the first week of December, I spent a good amount of time before that making treat bags, goodie paint cans, and other small gifts for teachers and other people. I was so so happy I did that! This week my husband needed some treat bags for co-workers and I already had them made. The last thing I wanted to do this week was crutch around and try to make treat bags.

Here are the ones I made for my husband. He filled them with those Lindor truffles...so yummy!


I used bag templates from My Scrap Chick and cut them using my Sure Cuts ALot software (SCAL) on my Cricut. So so easy!!! I used kraft cardstock for the base,  My Little Shoebox papers, baker's twine and some fun jingle bells I found at Michael's.The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


I used the baker's twine to tie the jingle bells on. I knew my husband would just love to carry around some jingling treat bags, ha ha!!


Today was my kid's last day of school, they are so excited to have 2 weeks off!! And I got my cast off today. My incisions are healing very well and my doctor decided to put me in a boot instead of a cast. I still can't walk on my foot, but I can take the boot off to take a shower. I CAN'T WAIT for a real shower!!! It's the simple things that make me happy.

Happy Friday everyone!

Love the treat bags! They are so festive and fun with their bright colors and jingle bells! And enjoy your shower, lol! I remember after knee surgery, the first time I was able to shower and get my knee wet (instead of sponge bathing with a garbage bag on it) - that was heaven :)
