Hello and welcome to the We R Memory Keepers’ blog! I am Eva Pizarro and today I want to show you how to make some cute Patriotic Treat Bags using the Goodie Bag Guide.
The Oh Goodie Collection has all you need to make easy and cute treat bags, from glassine paper to embellishments and even seals! Plus The Goodie Bag Guide can be used with other types of paper. You can see a tutorial on how to use this tool on this We R YouTube video by Aly.
I used the A, B and D inserts and started with an 8 inch paper. For my first treat bag I decided I wanted to use some red paper from the Flower Girl collection. To make it even more fun I cut a star window on my paper, I used a shape from the Clearly Posh Ephemera as my guide
The tool cuts patterned paper really easy, the possibilities are endless! Next, I glued my treat bag with a strong adhesive like this glue gun from Bazzill. I also added a piece of Clearly Posh acetate to cover my star window.
To embellish my treat bag I used a sticker from the Flower Girl collection, a star from the Ephemera Pack of the Clearly Posh Collection, a vintage clothespin, and of course my favorite–a chocolate chip cookie!
I assembled everything and this is how it turned out!
For the next treat bag I used the Oh Goodie paper, the stars pattern was perfect for my theme and I love that my treat bag is grease proof, so no food stains! To decorate I used a die cut from the Flower Girl collection; a vintage clothespin, starburst tag , and star clip from the Oh Goodie Collection; and some baker’s twine.
For my last treat bag I ran some cardstock through my Evolution Advanced using the Gemstone Next Level Embossing Folder to add some extra texture to the bag.
And I also made 5 mini banners with my Banner Punch Board. I used them to create a star by attaching them on top of a starburst tag.
I added a few more embellishments like a wood veneer from the Flower Girl collection and a vintage clothespin.
Add your triangles to the tag using some foam dots and finally layer the wood veneer on top.
My treat bags are ready and they are so cute! I think all my friends will want one now!
Do you make treat bags for your friends and family?
Happy 4th of July!
