'Reindeer Noses' Christmas Treat Bags: Silhouette Print and Cut (Free Studio Cut File)

If you're looking for a last minute treat or goodie bag for your child's classmates or even a little stocking stuffer this holiday season, I have just the Silhouette project for you today - and it even includes a free cut file!

This is literally a 15 minute Silhouette print and cut project.  I've designed the file for you and I have a shopping list all ready for you so your work here is minimal - something I know we can all appreciate this time of year.

Supplies: 

3x4" Sealable treat bags
Cardstock for Print and Cut
Glue Dots or Double-Side Tape Roll
Brown and Red Candies: Suggestions: Chocolate Covered Raisins and Sour Red Cherry Candies or Red and Brown M&M's  (I purchased my candies at  Dollar Tree.)

Start by downloading the free Studio cut file and opening in Silhouette Studio.

Personal Use Only
OPTIONAL: If you want to add your child's name in their own handwriting, as I did, have them write their name on a piece of paper. Snap a picture and email it to yourself.  Drag and drop the jpeg into Silhouette Studio and trace it. Then fill the trace and change the line color with black (or whatever color you want).  Move it into position and set the name to 'no cut.' The only thing that should be cutting is the outline of the fold over tab. A full tutorial on tracing handwriting can be found here.
If you are using the 3x4" treat bags, you don't need to resize the design - simply print.  If you need to resize the design, measure the treat bags you are using and size the design accordingly before cutting.

Once they've printed you can start loading the sheets, one at a time, onto the Silhouette cutting mat and cutting out the tabs.   I find the best cut settings for cardstock are a blade depth of 3 and a double cut. If you have any tearing in the antler area, slow down the speed.

While the designs are cutting, fill each treat bag with 8 brown candies (reindeer noses) and one red candy (Rudolph's nose).  Seal the bags and set aside.

When the Silhouette is finished cutting, remove the papers off the cutting mat and fold at the perforated line.  Repeat the cutting process for as many treat bags as you need.  Please excuse my mat...I was experimenting with cutting leather and it left my mat extremely dirty!

You will need two glue dots or two strips of double-sided tape for each bag.  Place one glue dot or a line of tape on the under side of the folded tab.  Place another glue dot or strip of tape on the larger section of the backing.

Place the sealed treat bag down onto the backing and press it gently so the glue dot or tape holds it in place.

Fold the top tab over and press it down so the adhesive on the underside sticks to the top area of the bag.
