Owl Birthday Theme Treat Bags

I created an owl birthday invitation a while back and thought I would do treat bag toppers to go with the theme.  I found some little bags at the dollar store that measured 4″W x 6″H, so I cut out a scalloped square from the Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge measuring 4″ square to fit the width of my goody bag.  This scalloped square was actually a frame so the centre was empty, therefore I had to cut another square at about 3.5″ to layer underneath the blue scalloped square frame.  If you don’t have access to the Accent Essentials cartridge, or even a Cricut machine for that matter, these are still easy to make with just some scissors and paper punches if you’ve got them.  Just layer some colored cardstock and trim the edges or corners to make them look fancy.

I cut the cute little owl out using the Hoot ‘n’ Holler cartridge and added a bow to the ear that I just cut out free hand, as well I added some googly eyes and gems.  I used my mini daisy punch and punched out four flowers, two in pink and two in yellow, then layered them on top of eachother.  I also added a gem to the centre of those, and gems to the corners of my scalloped square.  Again, if you don’t have access to a cartridge, stickers would work well too :).

I stuck everything together before I filled my treat bag, so now I’m wishing I would have waited on sticking the flowers on so quick.  They would have been perfect to stick on over my staples to hide them!
So this was my handmade treat bag topper idea.  Just fill the bags with some candy, small toys, or little lip glosses for girls, and they’ll be ready to go.  You could even stamp kids names on them, if you’ve got small letters, to give them a personal touch.  Have fun creating, and I’d love to see what people come up with, so feel free to email me pictures that I can post on my website to give additional ideas to viewers!
