DIY washi tape advent calendar treat bags : fox and star blog

So a couple of days ago I ended up purchasing a whole stash of cadburys heroes. They were just staring at me in the aisles, it would have been rude not to, right? In a futile attempt to ration them out and not wolf them down in the space of an hour, I thought they'd be perfect for advent treats.

Faced with the prospect of making lots of tiny little treat bags, a brainwave suddenly hit me. Origami paper. It's the perfect size for whipping up a treat bag big enough for a couple of sweets.

In a break from the traditional red, green and gold, I thought I'd go for a proper bright rainbow palette.

The treat bags / envelopes are super easy to make. It's just a case of folding them, popping the sweets inside and adding a bit of washi tape to seal. If you're eagle eyed, you'll also spot the thin washi tape from the mt slim sets on the mini wooden pegs.

I've printed off numbers, but this would totally work with initials too for party favours.
