A couple little treat bags using Odd Bird Planet images and Flair Design papers. I got the idea for these treat holders from my friend Frances who used to make them with heart cut outs for Valentine’s Day.
The folder for the candy is very easy to make. It is a piece of cardstock 4″ wide and 11″ long. Score at 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, and 10″. Then it is just folded up like a triangle with the last 1″ flap folding over the first. Here is a side view.
Put your candy in a bag (I use the Wilton candy bags) and adhere it to the back panel. Fold up the cardstock around the candy and punch 2 holes through all 4 cardstock layers at the top. Feed a ribbon from the back through the hole then through the other hole to the back. Feed both of the ribbon tails through their opposite hole and pull to the front. Trim and hold flat with a bit of adhesive.
You can leave the front blank or cut a window before you assemble it like I did. When I use Nestibilities to cut windows (or to cut around images I’ve already colored), I hold the die in place with a bit of painter’s tape. I stick the tape on the part I intend to discard.
For the first one, I cut a circle, but left some of the image sticking up in front of the window.
For the second, I was playing around with embellishing the window itself – so I embossed a spider web and Teresa’s Spider on acetate and adhered it behind the window. I really love Ranger embossing powers. I used superfine black embossing powder here.
