Hello my scrappy friends!
Its Lisa back with a new tutorial making these cute little treat bags for the holiday season.
I guess they are great for any time of the year too.
I was thinking about Thanksgiving in a few days and how I'm so Thankful for my "family"!
I was recently at a card convention when I seen some adorable little candy bags and I thought I don't need to buy the pre-made ones? I can just make them out of cardstock easily. :)
I was also thinking they would be great for name place cards on the table too.
Here are 2 different colors and using Donna's fabulous new "pockets and swirls" diecuts.
Here is the one we will make today, for the thanksgiving holiday.
First, you need a piece of white cardstock 3 x 9 inches and score it at 4 & 5 inches.
Next use a punch on each edge.
*I centered it using the lines of the punch then went out both ways.*
Then fold on score lines and using a hole punch
make 2 holes up on the top through both sides at once.
Using Donna's blue jean paper from "storybook"
diecut the 2 smallest pockets from "pockets and swirls"
Next distress the edges with your "zutter" for a cool jean look!
I also doodled on the lines of the smaller pocket with a white pen.
Stamp on white cardstock with "mixd media inx"-black the word "family"
from the "banner and words" stamp collection.
I fussy cut if out and used pop dots.
Glue down the pocket and add small punches of leaves.
In the inside add a tiny bag *jewelry size*
punch again through the bag...dont forget your goodies!
Place ribbon through holes and give yourself some length for a bow.
Place ribbon through the front and add a bit of white lace to the top.
Your "treat bag" is ready for this holiday season!
Hope you will give them a try soon!
They are really great as gifts, treats for school or just because!
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with friends, family and loved ones!
