Playful pals as gift bags

After realising how small the pyramid pals are, I decided to try them as gift bags.
Using the gift bag punch board they can be as large or as small as you like.
I'm making 15 for my grandsons 1st birthday as treat bags. They're made from card stock so will easily hold little toys etc for the bubbas.

Playful pals thinlits

These cute little boxes are ideal for children's parties. Much cuter than a lolly bag! 
So easy to do, with parents supervision, the children could make their own!
These little boxes open at the back to easily access little treats without ruining the character.
Be a great double as a place setting AND a treat box.

Latest bags

I love making bags and boxes. Pop in some pretty tissue paper and a gorgeous gift and you're done. No need to fluff around with paper and bows.
The large bags are the 2016 Caroline Hallet bags, I love how easy they are to make, and the small ones are from Elaine at Papercrft Button.
Add your own touch to these bags using tags, embellishments or even card fronts as I did with the balloon one.

Have a great day!
