I was perusing SplitCoastStampers, as I have for years, but have never joined it until this week. Anyhow, I saw Robin’s very cool Tart & Tangy Treat holder & had a flash back to making those as a kid (but mine was made out of the lined paper I tore out of my Phonics Exercise pages).
Anyways here is a link that I found that is pretty straight forward … look at it before trying to go by my photos.
Here is my take on the treat holder using the new S.U. Designer Series Paper – Afternoon Tea … so pretty. Kinda’ leaning towards Earth Elements shades, my fav.
Robin said she made hers 6″x6″, which is a fantastic idea, because you can get 4 out ONE 12×12 DSP. Plus it fits bite size brownie cookies just right (make ‘em small, eat more). So copy and share everything … here is my take on Robin’s treat bags:
Quarter the paper … 6″x6″:
Fold the square in half:
Fold the bottom up to meet the side … this is more clear in that link I gave above.
Now unfold that last fold, it was just a guideline for the next fold.
Now fold the right hand side up to meet the crease guideline.
And bring the other side up … looking kinda like a McDonald’s Fries box, no?
Now fold down one of the top flaps over.
Now make it 3-D by opening the top & pushing the bottom in a bit.
I’ve made this more complicated that it is, after all if a kid can do it, so can us big kids too, & in prettier paper.
Thanks again Robin for the inspiration!
Always a good time to bring cookies, brownies, deserts of any kinds to the neighbours.
