Happy little candy bags

So I’m on my way out today to a small get-together with crafty friends.

But since it’s “that” time of the year, I felt the need to take  something special yet simple for the girls.

Enter: these happy little candy bags.

I know. I know. 😉 🙂 Candy bags have been done a million times over by stampers and scrappers everywhere.

But, hey, you have to do what you can with what you have. 😉

The bags are from Clear Bags. I added the red and green jelly beans (ala’ Winco) to them.

The toppers started out as a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of white cardstock. I folded them half and stamped the house and sentiment on them. The house is from Doodlebug. The sentiment is from A Muse Artstamps. I stapled them up.

I finished ’em up by stamping the scallop (also from A Muse), cutting it out and mounting it over the staples.

One pleasant surprise was the finished bags fit perfectly in a small, white ceramic bread loaf pan. The one I used is like the ones that are always available at the dollar store and M’s around the holidays.

Well, better pack my stuff and head out. Hope you all are having a lovely weekend!
