Five on Friday

Wow that week seemed to fly by! I'm joining Amy again today from Love Made My Home and all the other lovely bloggers who post there. Please go and visit them - such talented crafters, photographers and interesting people.

I have another little treat bag that can be made in 5 minutes in 5 or less steps with a 6 x 6 inch piece of paper or cardstock. I will post the last one in the series tomorrow as I will be doing something new next week.

Apologies for the lighting in the photos; it's been a really dull day today where I am. Hope it has been brighter wherever you are.

Step 1

Step 1: Place a piece of 6 x 6 inch paper or card onto a scoring tool and score at 7/8, 2-7/8, 3-3/4 and 5-3/4 inches. ( 2.2, 7.3, 9.5 and 14.6 cm)

Step 2

Step 2: Turn the paper 90 degrees and score at 7/8 inch. (2.2cm)

Step 3

Step 3: Fold on all the score lines. Use a bone folder with thicker paper or cardstock for a crisper fold. Cut into the tabs along the narrow end up to the horizontal fold.

Fold over the skinny tab on the side and add glue or double sided sticky tape. Fold over and join the two long sides of the bag.

Add glue/tape to the bottom tab as shown. Fold in the small tabs, then the larger unglued one before the final glued tab to create the bottom of the bag.

Step 4

Step 4: Push in the sides at the top of the bag and pinch.

Step 5

Step 5: To close the treat bag, punch two holes and add ribbon or twine to tie together or use a stapler or mini clothes peg to keep the goodies inside.

The final size of the treat bag is 2 x 7/8 x 5-1/8 inches (5 x 2.2 x 13cm).

I hope you have a go at this little bag. Like all the others they make great thank you or table gifts or even Advent or Christmas tree gifts.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing. Please drop back to see the last treat pouch tomorrow.
