Mini Treat Bags

Hello again crafty friends!  I'm back today on the Kat Scrappiness blog to bring you another cute project!  I made 3 adorable mini treat bags using the Stitched Heart Tag die and I decorated them with the Stitched Flag dies and the Double Stitched Circle dies.  I have a video for you today to show how I assembled the bags and it's super easy to follow.  I have to thank my fellow Kat Scrappiness design team member Maria Russell for the fabulous idea to make the bag.  She did a video a while back showing the process and I remade the bags using some current stamps and dies.  

This is the bag I assembled in my video and I used a sentiment from the Punny Snacks stamp set.  
The pretty patterned paper is from the Lawn Fawn paper pack, Gotta Have Gingham .  I started with 2 die cut panels from the larger die in the Stitch Heart Tag dies. I then cut a coordinating piece of paper to 11 7/8" x 2" to attach the 2 die cut panels together.  Next you will score your paper on the 11 7/8" side at 4" and 7 7/8" and then you will score the paper 1/4" in from both sides on the 2" side.

After you score your strip fold on all the score lines and make 
4 snips where the score lines meet each other.

The next step is to place some strong double sided adhesive along the middle sections to 
adhere the 2 heart tags.

Next you want to apply some additional double sided tape to the remaining scored flaps and assemble the box accordingly.

The video will show the assembly process step by step.  The only thing left to do is decorate the front of the box and fill it with pretty tissue paper and treats!
I die cut several Stitched Flag dies from some more gingham paper and arranged them around one of the Double Stitched Circle dies.  I stamped a sentiment from the Punny Snacks stamp set on to a scalloped circle and adhered it to the circle on some foam tape.  
I made the same box with some different patterned paper but essentially followed the same steps.

I also created the same bag a third time for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop that Kat Scrappiness is a super sponsor for.  I used the Layered Coffee Cup die and the "Got Coffee" sentiment die for the front of the bag and I finished it off with a sentiment from the Technique Tuesday stamp set "Sassy Coffee"
I stamped the sentiment on to a Stitched Flag die and finished off the front panel with some paint splatters of Ground Espresso distress ink.

These treat bags are super fun to make and they are very quick and easy to assemble.  They would make great party favors for a kids party or even elegant favors for a wedding or anniversary party.  
Here is a link to the YouTube video showing how to assemble these cute bags.
