Treat Bag Cover
by Beate Johns
Decorate your cello bags with a cardstock cover.
- One 3 3/8" x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock for treat bag cover
- Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
- Scor-Tape™, or other strong adhesive (optional)
- Border Punch (optional)
- Stamps, Unity's Believe in Fairytales used here
- Crop-a-dile™, or other hole punch
- 3" x 5" Cello Bag
- Candy to fill your cello bag
Score the cardstock at 4", 4 1/2", 5" and 9".
Fold cardstock in half at the 4 1/2" score line.
Now fold the 4" and 5" score line in the opposite direction to create the bottom of the treat bag cover.
Fold the top flap down.
Step 4 (Optional)
Decorate the edge of the flap with a border punch.
Stamp the cardstock.
Decorate the front of your treat bag cover.
Add a strip of Scor-Tape™ on the score line under the flap.
Place the candy filled cello bag on the cardstock.
Line the bottom of the cello bag up with the edge of the first score line, centering over the cardstock.
Fold the part of the cello bag that extends over the score line of the flap down.
Now fold up the cover front.
Fold your flap down and punch a hole close to the center of the flap.
Punch a second hole close to the first one.
Thread a piece of ribbon through the holes.
Tie a bow in the front. Your treat bag is done.
Use patterned paper instead of stamping your cardstock.
Add a window to the panel furthest away from the front flap.
