Doggie treat bags for Simba and Bailey!!

Happy Sunday everyone! Eeeks this weekend went fast and I am still where I was last Sunday making Christmas cards for customers and hoping to have them all done by Wednesday!! Yesterday, I took time out to go to my local craft store,  Photo Scraps in Eldersburg, MD. I never realized how fortuante I was to have a huge privately owned craft store so close to me for it is less than 4 miles. I have been taking several of their awesome classes and have met woman who have traveled more than 2 hours to attend because  there was nothing closer to their homes.  Amazing! Today Lisa Halstead had these adorable Christmas doggie  and kitty treat bags, which I had to make!  I brought one home, not put together to show you how easy they are to do!  

This is the supplies you will need to complete this project.

Plus: Cuttlebug,  Nestability 1.75 inch scallop oval, 1 1/4 circle punch, score tape or tape of your choice, Christmas stamps or digi's, border punch, clear small baggie, small dog bones or kitty treats. 
  • Cut (green) card stock 9" x 3", Red 2 3/4" x 3 1/4" and green pattern  3" x 2 1/2". 
  • Score the 9" x 3" at 4" and 5"
  • Punch a 1.25 inch hole in the of the 4" x 3" section on the green card stock. Center your red and green pattern paper  on the 4" x 3 " section of the green card stock and punch a 1.25 inch hole in each. It is much easier to punch one hole at a time. 
  • Red pattern paper cut to 3 x 2 inch and score at one inch. Using any border punch cut a border on the 3" side of paper. 

Cut a 1.75 inch scallop circle using white paper. 
Using your 1.25 circle punch cut out the center of the scallop circle. 

Layer your circle punch paper together and 
adhere to the 4 x 3 inch section on the green card stock. 

Your bag should now look like this when folded on the score lines. 
Place the small dog bones or kitty treats in a small baggie and 
staple onto the inside top of the 5" x 3" green card stock.  

Fold your red pattern paper at the score line and attach it over the top of your green folded card stock. 
Decorate the front with anything you like. The word woof was printed by a stamp at the store but, you could do this yourself using word on your computer.  Cut around the word to give it a white outline.  Make a small tag and punch small hole at the end of it. Place twine or ribbon through the hole and tie into a bow. 
Sounds difficult but it is really easy to make and treat bags can easily be made for anyone and filled with red candy hearts for Valentines day! Lots of possibilities!

embossing folders and lots more!! Check it out and 
wish yourself a very Merry Christmas!!

Colleen, thank you so much for the warm welcome to the Outlawz. I have been addicted since I first visited. The community there is amazing! I love this doggie treat bag idea. I wish my dogs weren't so finicky and would eat treats. I know...amazing huh? What dog doesn't like treats, huh....MINE! It is always nice to see pet parents including this side of the family in the creations. Awesome Job!
