Birthday Bouquet – Cute Treat Bag Tutorial.

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Treat Bag Tutorial.


As promised yesterday I have continued with the projects using the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. I have used three of them for the bags and another two as background for the photo’s. Aren’t they just lovely, I will be sad when I run out as they are being retired and wont be in the new catalogue in June. There is a link to everything that is retiring here. These are going very quickly though so if there’s anything you want nows the time to get it.

I hope to eventually do video’s for my tutorials but haven’t braved them yet, so for now I’m using lots of photo’s.

I love these little treat bags, they fit two mini bags of haribo’s in, which is a nice little treat for the children (or young at heart adults!).  For ‘older’ adults you could pop some little chocolates or mints or something like that in.

Cut your piece of paper:  –  8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches (21.5 x 11 cm)


Score at:   Long Side  –  1/2, 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 7 1/2 inches   (1, 8.5, 11 and 18.5 cm)
Short Side – 1/2 and 3 1/2 inches (1 and 8.5 cm)


Fold and Burnish all score lines, with the small edge to the left cut the bottom square out, making a small wedge in the side as shown. Cut up the score lines along the bottom, taking slight wedges from the smaller pieces.   This is all the cutting that is needed.

Add double sided tape or Fuse as shown above.

Fold as shown, fold the left side over the sticky edge. For the base, remove sticky protector and with the front of the treat bag facing you fold small flaps in, then the back flap and finally the flap from the front.

Carefully nip the top together and using your finger gently draw it down the sides to create the gentle creases. Round the edges with a corner punch (these can be left if you dont have one) Using a small hole punch, punch a hole on either side through both the front and the back together.  Put your chosen sweets in, thread your chosen ribbon through and tie in a bow.


For the sentiment I have used a stamp from the Watercolour Wishes card kit. I have punched this out with the Washi Label Punch, and also punched one out of  matching card which I have layered underneath and placed both diagonally just under the ribbon.

I hope these instructions were clear, but if you are unsure of anything please comment below and I will do my best to answer.

Tomorrow of course is ‘quick card thursday’ I hope you pop in to see what I have made.

Happy Crafting
