A quick last minute treat bag topper

I had one last gift to take care of today. Once I got home from the store, I decided that the gift (treats) would be fun to present in a bag with a cute treat bag topper vs wrapping a box.

So in less than an hour later, I ended up with this....
I used my Cameo software to create a rectangle top. I then added some adorable cut files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I had a super cute bag topper ready for gift giving.

The files I used to create this were: Santa's HelpersBorders 1Christmas Brights Flourish Digi paper. and Christmas Brights Circles and Spots Digi paper

I used the print and cut method, but I didn't cut all the pieces. Instead, I took some layers, grouped them and then printed and cut.  Example, those tiny green stocking stripes...I am not sure I could have cut and got them glued to look nice. So, I just printed them with his boots and body as one piece.  I then printed and cut his clothes to layer on top. I did something similar with his head and hat. I still got a look of paper piecing without dealing with the many tiny pieces.

I added a Peachy Keen face and a sentiment from My Creative Time's Warm Holiday Fun stamp set.

Hope you are having a wonderful day.
Sending you all wishes for a safe and blessed holiday!
