Last week for my daughter’s Valentine’s party I was asked to bring in a treat for the kids to share. When asked for suggestions I was told anything really as long as they were in individual bags. As I went along I came up with this really cheap and easy way to create treat bags and I realized that I could do this for any occasion. All you need is snack size zip lock bags, napkins with the print of your choice, a stapler and funky edge scissors.

First I took my napkins and cut them in half.

Then I took one of my funky edge scissors and cut each half down a bit. I think I cut maybe an inch or 2 off.
I folded the straight edge down for some added support and placed my snack bag on top of it. I folded the funky edge over and stapled down.

It was that simple. You can make these for any occasion and it was really cheap. I picked up the napkins for $1 at the supermarket.

**For the cookies all I did was take small cookies (Oreo’s work great), dipped half the cookie in melted white chocolate chips, sprinkled them with sprinkles and set aside to “set”. 3 cookies per bag was perfect.
