My daughter had a Frozen birthday party this year. We always give a little treat bag to each of the kids that attends to say thank you for coming and celebrating with us. I saw an idea for a marshmallow Olaf on One Creative Mommy while browsing Pinterest. I thought this would make a perfect Frozen treat bag idea.

These are a cinch to put together. I purchased the Frozen cartridge for my Cricut Explore™. On it was a pre-drawn saying – “Do you want to build a snowman?”. There was a also an image of Olaf himself. Using a rectangle shape, I created a printable treat topper. Using the new print then cut feature I was able to print and cut these out in no time!
Cricut Design Space cut file: Build a Snowman Bag Topper
- Giant campfire marshmallows
- Regular marshmallows
- Mini marshmallows
- Snow caps
- Pretzel sticks
- Orange slice candies
I will first show you the finished snowman so you can see what you are putting into each bag. I think he is pretty cute!
You will cut the giant marshmallow in half lengthwise. The easiest way to do this is to use kitchen scissors rather than a knife. The knife mostly just smooshes the marshmallow. If the cut edges are too sticky, you can dip them in a little bit of cornstarch, but I didn’t worry about it.
You will also cut your orange slices. The great thing is they have little grooves that work out perfectly to create a carrot nose shape.
For each treat bag you will use:
- Bag topper
- Cellophane bag
- 1/2 large marshmallow
- 2 regular marshmallows
- 2 mini marshmallows
- 1/5 orange slice candy
- 2 pretzel sticks
- 3 snow caps
Place all the above items in a small cellophane treat bag. Fold your treat bag topper in half. Place the treat bag topper over the cellophane at the top and staple shut.
Do you do treat bags for birthday parties?
