Fancy Favor Treat Broom



Here is my Fancy Favor Treat Broom! I used the Fancy Favor box die and the packing paper that comes with Stampin' Up shipments to make this little favor! These would be great to make with a class or for all the people that come to your next class filled with little treats! A great hostess gift too and so easy to make!
I saw the original idea on the Martha Stewart site using paper bags, but I thought the Fancy Favor die would be perfect for these!

Here is how I made this cute little witches broom favor:

Using the Big Shot and the Fancy Favor die, cut out two bags using the scrap paper that comes with the Stampin' Up shipments as packing material. If you do not have this, grocery bags or construction paper would also work ok. You do not want to use cardstock to do this, it will be too thick.


Tape the bottom of the boxes together. These do not need to be perfectly straight or have all of the scores folded. You are going to smush them around anyway.
Cut one of the bags in slits going almost to the bottom of the bag.


Put your treats in the uncut bag and put this is the center of the cut bag. Just smush the bottom to fit it in.
Use twine and tie up the top of the bag around a stick. Your bag is finished!


I used the Out on a Limb stamp set and the 2-1/2" Circle Punch to make the little tag for the top of the stick. I tied this on with more twine.

***POST UPDATED***
If you want to use the Fancy Favor box, but make the treat bag broom larger, here is how you do it!



Use one section of the paper packing material from the SU shipments and fold it in half the long way.


You are going to fold over in the middle of both layers of paper like shown. The fold needs to be on the top part of the Fancy Favor die, not over the scores to make the bottom tabs.


Put it through the Big Shot and you will get your two bags that are larger and can hold more treats. Follow all the rest of the steps above to make the broom!
