I’ve only used these awesome Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies set once so far, but it’s so much fun and so darned cute, quick and easy to use!
These little bags would be great for table seating tags, children’s parties, little goodie handouts and more.
Here’s my first finished Mini Treat Bag, which will also be used for a swap at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Conference at the end of January:
I filled these bags with Hickory Farms Mints.
TIPS AND STEPS TAKEN FOR MY LITTLE MINI TREAT BAG:
- Make sure your Designer Series Paper‘s pieces are positioned so that the pattern is pointed in the same direction. This papers pattern is pretty random but I still was sure that the dies were set on the paper so that the zigzag edge was positioned the same way.
- Carefully fold along the score lines and attach the front to the back.
- I die cut the circle (3rd from smallest) before attaching that smaller right side panel.
- I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to secure all edges of the Mini Treat Bag. If you place a thin line of the glue on the overlapping edges, the entire seam will be secured.
- Before closing the bag attach a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ window sheet with 4 Glue Dots. (no photo, sorry)
- Attach the Tag and Bow to the Treat Bag before filling. The Tag was attached with Snail Adhesive, the ‘for you’ sentiment with Multipupose Glue and the Bow with a Glue Dot. All of the thinlit die pieces are a part of the 12 piece Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.
Again, here are my 5 finished bags. This was a fun project that you can easily duplicate.
