Shamrock Burlap Treat Bags

Good Morning, Friends!  Today is a super exciting day for me because I'm sharing my first post as a blog contributor at my favorite blog, Tatertots & Jello.   Tatertots & Jello has long been my favorite blog and Jen is so incredibly talented.  As much as I'm trying not to geek out over it, clearly I kind of am.   It's a huge blog dream of mine come true.  And if you're stopping by from Tatertots & Jello... welcome!  I am so, so glad that you are here.  

Today I'm sharing my Shamrock Burlap Treat Bags with you here- perfect for wrapping up one of my Double Mint Layered Brownies that I'm sharing the recipe for over at Tatertots & Jello today!

They are so easy to decorate, with or without a fancy cutter machine.  I used my Silhouette to cut a shamrock onto freezer paper but if you don't have a cutting machine you could just trace a shamrock cookie cutter onto freezer paper then cut it out making sure that you need the outline of the shape not the actual shamrock shape itself.  

Then I ironed on the outline of the shamrock onto the middle of each burlap bag.  I always slip a scrap of cardstock paper into the bag before painting because burlap is so porous and I don't want the paint to soak through to the backside of the bag.  {Bags are from Pick Your Plum

Then I just painted in the middle part of the shamrock, let it dry a bit, and pulled out the scrap of card stock paper.  It's a quick 10 minute project and you've got yourself an adorable little Shamrock Burlap Treat Bag to fill with my Double Mint Layered Brownies.  

Head over to Tatertots & Jello today for the recipe! 

Looking for more St. Patrick's Day ideas?

And here's a really old post, 
but I still love these Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats:

Clearly I have a thing for sweets and burlap.  Oh, and I also have a thing for Instagram & I'd love to be friends with you there!
