Seasonal Treat Bags

Hello, and welcome. I have a Facebook party going on right now on my Jean's Paper Jewels Page. Be sure and check out what is happening as there is an ordering incentive, and door prizes. Click on the FB icon on the right to take you directly there.

 I made these little treat pouches with one sheet from our Paper Stacks. They are exactly the right measurement at 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". You only need to score and cut away a small portion as shown in the picture below. I didn't get too fancy with them as they are just meant to hold little edibles. I did sponge the Chevron Ribbon with our Garden Green Stampin' Pad, but that's real easy. If you are one of my Facebook Fans, you've seen how to do that. After using our new Handheld Stapler, I have to say I'm a real fan. Check it out in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.


Here are the directions I promised you last week:  4-1/2" x 6-1/2" Designer Series Paper.
Score the long side (landscape) at 1", 1-1/2", 2", 4", 4-1/2", and 5". Turn, and score the portrait side at 1/2". The paper is turned over in the picture above so the score lines don't match up with the measurements on the grid paper.  You will trim away all but the front portion of the 1/2" scored part. See the picture. That is the bottom of the bag. Each side is accordion folded. Attach the back with Sticky Strip. You can put that on either side of the back because it doesn't show. Add your treats, and fold the bottom flap to the back using Sticky Strip. The top of the bag can be closed in a number of different ways. As you can see, I used our Angled Tag Topper Punch for the first one. I made a topper for the second, and simply stapled the third one closed. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
