Hi everyone, today I want to share a super cute and simple treat bag with you!
I love that you are able to make two of these from one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock. This is great for classroom parties!
The How To:
Start with a piece of cardstock that is 4 x 11. Score at 4, 6, and 10.
Accent Pieces: 1 at 3.75 x 3.75 and 1 at 3.75 x .75
Crease all the score marks in the base piece, set aside. Use an embossing buddy (or a sock filled with cornstarch), dab this all over the accent pieces. Doing this will help eliminate any kind of static, allowing the embossing to be more clear. From the Wings stamp set, I used the butterfly. Stamp the butterfly all over using the Versamark Ink Pad. Be sure to rotate the stamp to not create a pattern. On the smaller accent piece, I used the word Happy and the word Easter from the Happy stamp set. Be sure to dab this piece as well with the embossing buddy.
Once both pieces are stamped, pour some of the embossing powder over the images and completely cover them. (top: do this over a folded piece of scrap paper so can save the powder and easily put back in the container) Tap off any excess.
Heat the images up with the embossing heat tool until they appear shiny. (tip: run the heat tool for about a minute before embossing the images, doing this allows the gun to heat up quicker and embosses the images much quicker.
Using Art Glitter Glue, glue these pieces to the base of the bag, except for the smaller piece, we will attach this later :)
Now it is time for the treats. I used jelly beans with a a regular sandwich bag. Just cut the bag to fit the treat bag, use tape on the open sides to create a pocket. No need to be neat of fancy, this is just for the little ones :)
Place the bag, now filled with candy of your choice, inside the treat bag. You want to place the opening of the sandwich bag near the flap of the bag. Bring the other part of the bag forward (the one you attached the embossed piece to). Line everything up, making sure it straight, and staple the bag close. I used 3 staples. Use the smaller piece with the phrase to cover the staples. Wala, you are finished.

Hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday. Hugs, Stacy ♥
