Can you tell we love woodland creatures? They are very fitting for the winter holiday season, plus there are so many cute ways to use them in your crafts. We have made woodland ornaments, holiday cards, gift wrap, and more. If you love woodland animals as much as we do, we have added a couple more ideas to our December Collection, including these woodland holiday treat bags!
Our project template below includes three designs — a fox, bear, and raccoon. Just follow our instructions below to craft your own.
These woodland holiday treat bags are such a fun way to surprise little ones this Christmas. They are very simple to assemble, so you could easily craft a few extra for school or neighbor friends too! Fill them with some chocolates, candies, or baked treats and you can even stick a sweet note inside. If you saw our last Craft Camp activity, you could use our printable “10 things I love about you” notecard — or have your kiddo fill it out for a friend or family member.

- Craft Scissors
- Cutting Machine (optional)
- Inkjet Printer – Canon PIXMA TS6420 (if using PDF or Print-Then-Cut files)
- Adhesive Dot Roller
- Frosted Text Weight Paper – Flame, Bronze, and Ionised
- Light Cardstock Paper (if using PDF or Print-Then-Cut files)
There are a few ways to make these woodland holiday treat bags depending on the tools you have available. You can print the PDF template on lighweight cardstock paper using your home printer, and cut everything by hand. Or you can use the Print-Then-Cut files to have your Cricut do all the work. Last option would be to download the SVG cut file and cut the treat bags from frosted paper (we used text weight, but cardstock would work here as well). You can cut the faces and accessories by hand or using the Print-Then-Cut files.
To assemble the treat bags, first, fold along all the score lines. Add adhesive along the long tab, then fold bag in and secure tab to close. Fold in bottom pieces, then add glue to secure closed. Add adhesive to the backside of your animal faces, tummy, tails, and accessories, then press onto the bag to secure.

How do I print and cut the hat and scarves on Cricut? It says it’s too big.
I tested the files and they were uploading just slightly too large for the print-then-cut canvas size. I just revised the files so please download again 🙂
Is there really no way to JUST bring in the fox pieces and ONLY print then cut the hat or scarf you want? The layers are all flattened so when I bring them into design space I have to make ALL of them. Is this an error or is this really what you intended?
We did intentionally set up the files that way but just added a few more animals as individual jpegs.
