How To Make Easy Treat Bag Toppers & FREE Valentine Printable

Pin It Now!
I made these sweet little treat bags for my daugher and her friends.
I know it's a little early for Valentine's Day, but they start semester one final exams on Monday, and I thought they could use a chocolate fix for their study sessions.
{I love to spoil my girls!}
So, I thought I would share my super easy way to make treat bag toppers.
I love making my own treat bag toppers for bags of treats or cookies.
They make the treat bag looks so adorable and can lend some panache to a party or event.
This is such a great thing to know how to do because you can make them for birthday parties or any time you would like to give out a little something.
Treat bag toppers can be made quickly & easily without having to be an expert computer graphics designer or  buying a special program. It can be done with online with a free program.
I use avery.com to make my treat bag toppers.  It's the company that makes fantastic label sheets that you can buy in stores. But here's a little secret....you don't have to buy the label sheets. You can use their design and print online option to design your own labels and then print the labels at home on your own home computer on white cardstock, and cut them yourself.
This will save you money because cardstock is much,much cheaper than a package of label sheets.  
How To Make Treat Bag Toppers

Supplies:
Baggies
Treats for bags
White cardstock
Paper Trimmer
Stapler

Directions:
1. Go to avery.com. Sign in or set up an online account.
2. Go to the Design & Print Online Option under Templates and Software.
3. Click on the Marketing Solutions Category.
4. In the menu on the left side, you will see "Bag Toppers". Click that.
5. Now you will see a menu brought up of themes for Bag Toppers. Use any theme you like, or click on "Blank" to create your own. If you choose to create your own, you can play with fonts and images.
6. When you have finished the design, save it.
7. Print the design on white cardstock {white paper will also be fine.}
8. Trim the design into 4 bag toppers with a paper trimmer.
9. Fold bag topper and staple on treat bags.

What a great bag label. You should be so proud you did this on your own. Computers can be quite frustrating! I saw you are from Canada, and then read you were from Alberta! Had to follow you so cheers from and new follower and a fellow Canadian!

Love the poke holder! i am exploitation Feebly, and you are already in it as a result of I migrated all of my feeds from Google Reader. it's formally changed to the Feebly Cloud, therefore i am sensible to travel.handbag holder As for foundation piecing, I prefer using a freezer paper method because I can reuse the foundations as many as ten times.You are so creative and genius! These are so cute! It was great shopping with you a bit. I'm glad you were able to make it down.
