Good Wednesday morning and welcome to the CLASSroom. Halloween is just around the corner and is a time for fun treats and party favors. I have two products to share with you today that help make fast and easy bags and containers. First is the Avery Elle-ments Treat Tag and Box.
Cut two box sections.
Fold and score along the score lines.
Apply double stick tape to the bottom of one box section and adhere to the second box section.
Apply double stick tape to the right side of the four corner tabs and secure them in place to the
I filled mine with candy and decorated the tags with with assorted Impression Obsession Halloween dies.
My second set of projects were made using the We R Memory Keepers Goodie Bag Guide. The gingham paper pattern for the bags was printed on printer paper. You could use printed designer paper, glassine or vellum.
The guide is made up of four sections that allows you to make various size bags. You can make the length of your bags as long or short as you would like.
I used section A and D for my six inch wide paper. My finished pencil bag is 5.50” long and my finished pen bag is 3.00”.
Lay the guide over the paper and lining the edges up on both sides at the six inch mark. Press firmly on the guide to hold it in place and begin tearing the paper slowly and gently and work your way to the center.
Go over to the opposite side and repeat the tearing process until you work your way to the center.
Move the guide straight down the paper to the length you would like your bag to be, keeping it in the same position and repeat the tearing steps working from the bottom of the paper.
There is a special notch on both sides of the guide that signify the scoring line for folding the bag. See the arrows on the photo. Line the guide up on both ends of the paper and fold and crease it against the guide. Repeat on both sides of the bag.
Line the guide up on the bottom of the bag and allow a small portion on both sides of the paper to be included in the fold.
Apply double stick tape to one side of the bag and attach to close the sides together.
Apply double stick tape to the bottom and fold up to close the bottom. Note: I folded up a little more on the bag in the photo than I had originally planned to make it fit my pens.
Have fun decorating your bags.
