Pretzel Treat Bags

Happy Tuesday!

Hey paper lovers! It's day two of my guest spot over at the Obsessed with Scrapbooking blog.

Today's treat is chocolate dipped pretzels, in a bag, with a cute topper. 
Hand dipping and decorating pretzels, are just about as fun to make as they are to receive. I love all the fun holiday sprinkles that can be found at the store. You can find the chocolate buttons, in different colors, at Michael's and Joann's. 
I used my Gypsy to design the topper. I opened and sized the scalloped square, from Mini Monograms, to 3" x 3" wide. I found a square on George Basic shapes and sized it to 2.25" x 2.25". Once they were cut out, I inked the edges, glued them together, and folded them in half and adhere them, with Scor tape, to the tops of the pretzel bags. Lastly, I cut the heart dies, the banner dies, stamped the banners, and attached everything to the front, with foam tape.
