I love making cute AND easy projects and today’s project definitely fits under both of those categories. Since its Throwback Thursday I am recreating a treat bag I originally made last spring. You can see that original post HERE.
I’ll show you how easy it is to make this treat bag but first, as I mentioned yesterday, I’m celebrating my 7th Stampiversary with Stampin’ Up! this week! In honor of that, I am going to send out three of these Treat Bag kits to one lucky winner. You’ll receive a fun package in the mail with all the supplies you’ll need. I will cut, score and add the adhesive and you’ll just need to fold the flaps in (you’ll need to supply your own stamped image per Stampin’ Up!).
To enter to win, just leave a comment telling me which of the soon to be retiring In Colors (get them while you can) is your favorite! I’ll add an extra entry for you if you tell me which one is my favorite! I’ll announce the winner on Sunday, April 10th. I’m sorry but this is only open to U.S. residents.
Let me show you how easy it is to make the treat bag! You’ll need a piece of cardstock or DSP (I used Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper).
Card stock or DSP measurement: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Score on the portrait side at 1-1/2″
Turn it around to the landscape side and score it at 1-1/2″, 4″, 5-1/2″, and 8″
Now you will do some cutting and folding on the score lines (there’s some funky line above my score line, please just ignore that). When you lay your paper down to replicate my cutting, be sure the design you want on the outside is facing towards you and that the 1-1/2″ score line is down towards the bottom. Cut on the score lines indicated below. You’ll remove the piece on the right side, trim one of the flaps (this helps the bag fold up with less bulk), and take off a hair on the sides of the other pieces (again, less bulk).
Next, add Tear and Tape or Fast Fuse in the two areas shown below. The flap on the right hand side with the adhesive will attach to the opposite side to form the box. The flap with the adhesive will hold the bottom of the box together. I’ve put the adhesive on that particular flap so that it will face towards the back of the box (that will make more sense when you assemble your box).
You could pierce a hole at the top and attach ribbon but I decided to add a clothespin with some ribbon and my sentiment. Easy!! I’ll list all of the supplies that I used below. To place an order, just click on any of the products and you’ll be directed to my online store. Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
