Those Chistmas tree bags

Yes they were lolly/treat bags, great guess Paulette! I always do these now for birthdays, our Christmas BBQ, Christenings etc. I love to be able to say thanks for our friends and family for making the time and effort to come over and it saves sending out thanks you cards later : ) I generally lay everything out and put the bags together the night before.

And here is a glimpse of some of what I included in the bags- just little Christmas bits and pieces.
These were Flynn's contribution : ) This was just our basic sugar cookie recipe found here. Once they were bakes we decorated them with green icing and then some Christmas sprinkles.
This was the final product. The red and white stripy bags were for the kids and the paper bags were for the adults : ) I think it is a great way to say thank you to everyone for coming to your event and adults always love a lolly bag !!
Wow well this post turned out to be longer than what I thought but hopefully this gives you some ideas for your own little treats bags.

Yay!
My boys want a dinosaur party on the holidays. I was thinking something similar, but larger that the children can decorate themselves, and put their arts and crafts in (that er do during the party) to take home!

Good job.

Gorgeous Jade!

Are the little Xmas trees fastening the red & white bags pegs? Did you make them yourself or are they store bought? Very cute!

Hi Jade,
Just wondered where you found your tray from, been searching for a plain one for awhile. Is it plain base as well?
