How To Fill Pencil Goody Bags

Place the chocolate chips in the treat bag and give it a good shake to push them down into the tip of the bag.

Tips

  • Store the filled bags in a cool spot for up to 1 week. You don’t want to keep them too long or the crackers will get stale. 
  • If you use bigger treat bags, you’ll need more ingredients or will end up with a bigger leftover tail on the treat bag. It’s totally up to your preferences. I liked the end to be smaller.
  • I do not recommend curling the ribbon before tying it on as the curls will get stretched and can’t be fixed. It’s best to curl after the ribbons have been tied on.
  • You can use a non-curling ribbon and tie it in a bow if you don’t want to mess with curling. Of course, you can use a different color ribbon (maybe your school colors) but the pink mimics the eraser so I think it’s the perfect color. 
  • Here is a video on how to curl a ribbon with your scissors. Make sure you use curling ribbon for this method or it won’t turn out right.

Notes

  • Store in a cool spot for up to 1 week.
  • If you use bigger treat bags, you’ll either need more ingredients or end up with a bigger leftover tufted tail on the treat bag.
  • I do not recommend curling the ribbon before tying it on as the curls usually stretch out too much and can’t be fixed. It's best when you curl after the ribbons have been tied on.
  • You can use other ribbons if preferred and tie them in a bow if you don’t want to mess with curling.
