wild west loot favor

Cowboy goody bagCowboys and girls will happily ride off into the sunset with these loot-filled goody bags and you’ll love how easy they are to make. Here’s what you need:

Cut out the template and trace the dollar-sign onto your brown lunch bag (about an inch-and-a-half from the bottom). Fill the outline in with the black Sharpie and fill each bag with treats. Then simply gather the bag at the top, tie on the twine and attach the Sherriff badge (they usually have clips on the back) and you’re done.
