These designs can be printed from home or sent to a printer such as Staples, Walmart, or Office Depot.
I always increase the quality of my print when working with multi-colored printables so the image quality is higher.
I also like to use a heavy weight cardstock so the gift tags have some weight to them and won't tear or bend. If you're really in a pinch regular computer paper would work but cardstock is more sturdy.

Reindeer, Elf, or Snowman Poop
This treat bag is so funny it will make every recipient laugh out loud. My second and third grader are especially fond of this design and couldn't help but giggle as we made these treats for their classrooms.
This treat bag topper has five different designs to choose from!
This printable can be paired with a variety of different chocolate candies including, Whoppers, Rainsenet's, Truffles, Tootsie Rolls, Milk Duds, Hershey’s Drops, Buncha Crunch, Chocolate M&M’s, Peppermint Patties, Junior Mints, or Sugar Babies.
Mix a few varieties of chocolates together for an irregular poop treat that’s sure to get a laugh!
If you're making the snowman poop, opt for white mini marshmallows.
Gather your treat bags and Raisenet candies.
First, cut out the Reindeer Poop design and fold along the center.
After cutting and folding, let's assemble the treat bag. Grab a plastic favor bag and a bag of Dark Chocolate Raisenets.
Fill the bag with a 3/4 cup of Raisenets. Then make a 1" fold at the top of the bag and secure it with two staples.
Grab your folded Reindeer Poop design and place the top of the plastic bag between the flaps of the paper.
Finally, staple twice at the bottom edges of the paper.
After securing with staples, this amusing treat bag is complete!
I'm going to start by making the reindeer food treat bag first.
This design is so cute and can be put out on Christmas Eve for Santa's reindeer. I sprinkle it on the sidewalk leading up to our home with my kids each year.
You can choose from a classic red and green design or the red and black buffalo check.
For this design, have your oats and holiday-themed glitter on hand.
Before assembling the reindeer food, cut out the design with your paper cutter or scissors and fold the label in half.
Pro- Tip: Use a scraper tool to make a crisp fold.
To assemble the reindeer food, grab one plastic favor bag and pour a 1/4 cup of oats into the bag. Then, add a 1/2 teaspoon of glitter (I used red and green glitter).
Fold the top of the bag down by 1/2 inch and staple it in place.
Next, have your folded reindeer food label on hand and slide your plastic bag into the label. Leave an inch between the fold and the plastic bag (this makes it so that the paper doesn't cover what's inside the plastic bag).
Take your stapler and staple the bottom of the label twice.
And just like that, your reindeer food is ready for Santa's reindeer!
Next up, we are making the Elf Kisses treat bags.
This version features two different designs and you can choose your favorite!
Grab another plastic favor bag and seasonal milk chocolate kisses.
Begin by cutting out the Elf Kisses design and folding in half.
To assemble, fill the bag with 1/4 cup or 12 chocolate kisses. Then, fold the top of the bag down a 1/2 inch and staple it into place.
Grab your folded elf kisses label and place the filled plastic bag between the flaps in the middle of the label.
Then, secure the bottom of the label with two staples.
Once you're done stapling, this cute design is ready to be shared!
Moving on, let's assemble the Reindeer Noses treat bag. You can choose from a classic red and green design or the red and black buffalo check.
I'm filling this treat bag with cherry sours that resemble Rudolph's red nose.
To start, cut out the Reindeer Noses label with paper cutters, and then folding in half.
Next, grab one plastic favor bag and fill it with 1/4 cup of Cherry Sours chewy candy.
Then, fold the top of the bag by 1" and staple it in place.
Grab the folded Reindeer Noses label and place the plastic bag between the paper flaps.
Finally, staple it all in place with two staples at the bottom of the label.
Afterward, this fun Reindeer Noses bag is finished!
For this design, gather hot cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, and mini candy canes to put inside a treat bag.
Start by printing the design, cutting it out, and folding it in half.
I accidentally printed the wrong photo off for the photos. Be sure to print the correct one!
After folding, it's time to assemble the treat bag.
The first step to making this, is to grab a plastic favor bag and a packet of hot cocoa mix.
Pour 1/2 of the mix into the bag or 1/4 cup. Then, sprinkle mini marshmallows over the top. Lastly, unwrap a mini candy cane and place it inside with the rest of the ingredients.
Seal the top by folding it 1/4 inch down and staple the fold in place.
Grab your folded Snowman Soup label and place the top of the plastic bag between the paper flaps just below the fold, and secure with two staples.
Placing this treat bag into a holiday mug would make a great gift and a great cup of hot chocolate!
These designs are sure to make your recipients smile and are so simple and fun to assemble! Your candies don't have to be the ones I'm using. Get creative! There are so many candies to choose from; It would make a great family activity this holiday!
