Back to School Treats

Hi to all my blogging friends!  I wanted to say "welcome" to my new blogging friends too! 

Today I have a craft to share with you that 
I've been working on for some time.

During the Back to School blog hop, I created these simple and CHEAP back to school treat pouches.  I've loved these for a long time, but sharing them with you all inspired me to create! :)

I have a 5 year old son starting Kindergarten this year.  I also have a 7 year old entering a second/third grade two-part split class (two classes joined together with two teachers).  

So, with only two sons,  I have to provide treats for a total of three classes... that's a ton of treats!! 
 I made a total of 90 candy treats (I made extra just in case).

Here are the treats for just one of the three classes.
Here are pictures of the treats, including a teacher treat for each class and a decorated bag.  I didn't get a picture of the bag, but I included the jpeg file of it.

Here is an individual treat.

Here is a teacher treat (also filled with candy).

Right click on the picture and save it to use this file for your project. 

I put four pieces of candy in each pouch, tied it shut with the crafting twine, and added a three-part tag (complete with apple and "A+ Student" stamp).  If you'd like to know how to make these, here is the link from the tutorial I wrote up for the Blog Hop.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at CardsbyCG.blogspot.com.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
