Quickest, no-fuss party bags on the planet.

Well, ok. Maybe a plain paper bag is quicker. But is it cute? No.
My oldest son turned 8 during the week and he had three mates over yesterday for a low-key party. About half an hour before the boys were to arrive I realised that I hadn't made anything special for party bags! Not to worry, with my trusty Big Shot, a stamp, a punch and some medium cello bags from Stampin' Up! and I had these whipped up in about five minutes!

The blue bag topper was made by folding a Top Note longways, and was stapled to the cello bag once treats were inside. The thank you on old olive card stock was stamped with a stamp from a set which was sold with the curly label punch last year (I think it is retired). It was punched out with the curly label punch, and stuck on with dimensionals. For the final touch, I die cut the first letter of each boy's name in real red cardstock and stuck it on the label with 2-way glue.

I literally used scraps to make these. Bless the Big Shot!

Obviously, eight year old boys don't care about how fancy the treat bag is, or I'd have decorated further. They seemed pretty pleased with them!
