To start I purchased small snack sized bags from a craft store. I grabbed my cut outs that I made, my stapler and of course the goldfish.
I filled each bag using a measuring cup to make sure they all had about the same amount in them. I then folded the two corners of the bag in towards the center.
I then folded the pointed tip down.
Then folded that over once more.
Take one of the cut outs and place a large part of the cut out over the folded bag.
Use your stapler and staple the bag to the cut out. Make sure you go through the folds.
Now do that however many times you need to. I had 10 buckets and so I did a few of each color.
The finished product is awesome.
I also made sugar cookies, with chocolate star molds and colored royal icing. I then packaged them exactly the same way.
Don't they look great with the anchors?
I then added them to their goody buckets and the kids (and adults) loved them.

|I had extra cookies in a basket for the adults. Lifesavers too (sticking with the theme).|
