Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg : Christmas Craft Fair : Warmth & Cheer – Sweet Treat bags, with instructions.
These are just so cute, and so easy to make. Each one uses a piece of 6″ x 6″ paper from the Warmth & Cheer DSP stack.
I must apologise for the late blog post this morning, I have been away for the weekend with friends and by the time I got home yesterday I was shattered (It was a very busy weekend with lots of walking and badminton).
The best thing about this project is there is not a lot of cutting with just 2 tiny bits to cut off so next to no waste also.
With your 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP the direction you would like it to be when finished Score at: 1 7/8″, 2 7/8″, 4 3/4″ and 5 3/4″. (4.5cm, 7cm, 11.5cm and 14cm)
Turn clockwise and score on the other side at: 1″, 5″ and 5.5″ (2.5cm, 12cm and 13.5cm).
The finished box size is 1 7/8″ x 1″ x 4″ (4.5cm x 2.5cm x 10cm)
Turn your paper back to how you had it when you started scoring this is the right way. Fold and burnish all score lines (the two across the top will be folded towards you and the rest the other way).
cut the top and bottom pieces from the skinny panel on the right leaving just the middle section and cut up to the first score line on all score lines across the bottom. Then add Tear and tape/double sided tape or strong adhesive to the remaining part of the skinny panel, also add some to both sides of the top down to the 2nd score line and on the back to the first score line. (see above pictures)
Remove the tape backing and fold the top section down, then repeat with the second section this gives a nice thick edge with a contrasting border for the top of your bag, with the back facing you bring the left side to the middle then the right side to overlap so it lays flat. Open it out and turn over so the bottom is facing you, add tape where shown, fold in the side tabs then the back tab and finally the front tab.
Squeeze in at the top as shown then lightly run your finger down the edges to get a soft crease. Stamp your chosen sentiment and design on to Crumb Cake card I used the matching Wrapped in Warmth stamp set, cut or punch it out, I used the Decorative Lable Punch, then place it on an angle just under the top border. Fill your sweet treat bag with your chosen sweets I have again used chocolate coins because they are just so Christmassy, my family love them and they seem to be the preferred filling at craft fairs, but this little bag would fit loads of different sweets or even a small present.
To finish add a clip and tie some bakers twine to the clip and make a nice trailing bow. I have used the matching pack of bakers twine which included Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Gold twine. All products used are in the supply list below.
I hope you have enjoyed this project, I love Christmas and making these Christmassy bags has made me so excited for it to come round. Hope to see you all here again in 2 days for my regular Quick Card Thurdsday.
