- Grey scrap paper (cut to 4” x 3.5”)
- Yellow stripe scrap paper (cut to 3” x 3.5”)
- Grey polka dot scrap paper (cut to 4” x 1”)
- 5/8” teal ribbon (cut to 16” long)
- 4” wide cellophane bag (length a personal preference)
- Candy or treats to fill cellophane bag
Step 1: Gather your materials and cut them into the dimensions shown in the materials list. Cut triangular notches in the end of the grey polka dot strip of paper. Fill the cellophane bags a quarter full of your treat of choice.
Step 2: Place the yellow stripe paper on top of the grey scrap paper and fold in half.
Step 3: Take the filled cellophane bag and roll the top of the bag over several times until the there is about 1/2-inch of empty space left at the top of the bag. Lay the folded bag inside the folded paper. Make sure that the cello bag is inside the paper, then staple the bag to the paper on both edges.
Step 4: Now that the cello bag full of sugary fun is attached to the paper, close the folded paper over the folded bag. Layer on the strip of grey polka dot paper so that it sits in the middle of the front of the bag topper. Punch two holes, about an inch apart, through all layers of the cello bag topper.
Step 5: Thread your ribbon through - first go from the front to back, then from the back to front - so you have two edges hanging free from the paper. Tie a pretty bow with the ribbon. This creates a super cute accent for the bag, plus it holds it all shut!
