Friday = Happy Day

Now that I'm retired, Friday is just another day.  But for my hardworking husband, Friday is a happy day!  I'll be making him his favorite Martha Stewart Oatmeal Raisin Bars today. Given that he's had a tough week (sick, subway taken down for a day, etc.), I thought I'd slip one of the bars in this cute package (not sure he will care about the package, but I will).

I used the We R Memory Keepers Oh Goodie! Glassine Paper (food safe) to make this happy bag.  These papers are 12 x 12 and in a palette of fun colors and happy designs.  Love them! They'll work great on cards as well.

I trimmed the Oh Goodie! paper to 11" x 6.5" in order to make the finished bag, which is 4.5" x 5.5".  Used Concord & 9th's Bags and Tags Dies to trim the edge of the bag so there would be a cute top (and finished edge on the back) and to make the tag. Speaking of the tag, I added the stripes, tiny heart, and sentiment from Birdie Banners.  Oh, the cute gold sequin trim is also from Concord & 9th.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Colorful! Have a great weekend.


  1. How fun! Your husband will feel special because you made him a treat, and you'll feel special because of that fun bag! It's a winner...

  2. I think homemade treats in a hand made treat bag is just about the coolest thing ever. Presentation is everything!

  3. Such a fun, happy little package to give to your hubby! I love the Bags and Tags dies and have barely scratched the surface of ways to use them!

  4. Your hubby is the luckiest hubby to have a thoughtful and talented wife to make such a pretty package for his cookies!😂

  5. What a cute colorful gift bag and tag! And homemade oatmeal raisin bars inside! Very nice.

  6. Awww, how thoughtful of you to make his favorites and then wrap them up so sweetly!
