party diy: printable treat bags

{I have a few DIYs left from last week that I instagrammed but ran out of time to share...I'll post them over the next few days :)}

To keep favors simple {and easy!} for sister's party, I chose to give a few homemade chocolate chip cookies to each guest.

I followed my favorite recipe for the cookies.
For the bags, I adjusted my printer tray to 5 x 7 and printed directly on the brown bags.

To keep with all the bright and happy colors of the day, I used a rainbow of fabric scraps leftover from buntings to tie each bag through a hole punched through the top.

The strips were each about an inch wide.

We gave cookies, but of course almost any treat could go inside...candy, pocket pies, brownies, donuts, toys, trinkets...

For baked goods, I would suggest filling the bags as close to party time as possible to avoid any greasy spots showing through.  I filled ours a hour or so before the party and they still looked nice, but the few extras that we had left over until morning did show a few spots.
Just a FYI :)
