Playful Palette : Thank You Treat Bag

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Treat bag using Playful Palette DSP with instructions.


This lovely little treat bag uses 1 sheet of 6″ x 6″ paper, I have used the Playful Palette DSP stack. The way it is folded shows some of the other side too which I think gives it a lovely effect.

I have used a piece of paper to show the first stages as it didn’t show up very well against the patterned background and this way is much clearer, and much easier to follow.


Use a sheet of 6″ x 6″ DSP or cut a larger piece to this size.

Score at 5/8″, the turn 180° and score at 5/8″ again.

Turn once and score at 2″, 2 5/8″, 4 5/8″ and 5 1/2″

Fold and burnish all score lines.


Cut up the solid lines, and wedge into the small tabs, as shown below.


Using a corner punch round the bottom edges.


Glue where shown and fold the opposite way to the other folds, then round the corners again.


Add glue to the 4 tabs shown above.


Now we have started putting it together I will show you on the actual project.

The glue is on the outside of your treat bag, fold the small tabs up and bring the unglued longer tabs forward, line it up and stick.


Now fold the front up and adhere the glued tabs over the others you have just done.


Press in at the top and run your finger gently down the side to get a gentle fold rather than a crease.


This is what it should look like from the front, apart from the holes which need doing now, using a 1/8″ circle punch make 2 holes about 2 1/2″ apart, equal distances from the sides. Make sure you punch right through all the layers.

Did you spot the peg, this is good to keep your bag closed while you make your holes, and also is a sneak peek of another little project I have been working on, but that’s for another day…….!


Place your treat inside, I have used a dairy milk bar (from a multi pack) which fits perfectly.


Thread your ribbon through to the back then through the other hole back to the front. Tie in a bow and neaten ends.


Using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, stamp your banner and then Thank you inside it.


Punch out using the Duet Banner punch.


Using dimensionals adhere to the front of your treat bag as shown.

I added a couple of enamel stars and it was done.


This picture shows the first one I made also, my test one. It wasn’t quite right, it needed to be a bit shallower but also a bit longer, which was lucky because it still meant it could be made using a 6″ x 6″ sheet of paper.

This is good if you do not have a trimmer or your blade is blunt and you are waiting for more as you only have a few cuts to do which can be done with scissors, and best of all no waste, well apart from the two tiny bits that were cut out 🙂

I have a craft fair near the beginning of July so will be making quite a few of these, I think they will make cute little teacher gifts.

Happy Crafting
