Support others with a Goody Bag

Goody Bag DIY

Goody bags and gift cards are a common gift ideas and are a thoughtful way to support the people in your life. Today I am excited to share goody bag DIY filled with candy. End of school year means I need tons of thank you gifts for teachers, teacher’s aide, bus driver and staff and student gifts. Here is one of the ways we share our gratitude to the bus drivers and aides for our boys, in support of the loving care they so freely offer. How do you support the care givers in your life?

Supporting others with a Goody Bag

Knowing I would place a candy inside the bag, I chose a Cellophane Bag package from Stampin’ Up! that would hold a few pre-wrapped special chocolate candies. Because I am giving these gifts in an outer package, I can vary the items inside. I used several different “fancy” chocolate confections that are not an everyday treat. This goody bag is a great way to share special treats with special people and help them to feel loved. I remember only seeing special boxes of chocolate covered nougat candies come out at special occasions in childhood, so to give these as a gift makes it from the heart.

Pretty Label Punch is a very quick way to get a decorated label for a goody bag. Once stamped, I punched out the label and added decorative trimming to add a bit of flair to the appearance of the gift. Mini Sequin Trim is a great highlight to any project and a must have in my opinion!


For a visual demonstration of these techniques, see the video below.
