Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here on this lovely Valentine’s Day with my first DIY Party Board project – glassine treat pouches!
These pouches are super easy to decorate for any occasion, so even if you don’t have time today to make some for your Valentine, I still have some great tips for you! To make your treat pouches from Oh Goodie glassine paper, first trim your paper to 9 inches square. If you plan to keep the pouches food safe, use the Oh Goodie Guide to tear the excess paper; if not, just use your trusty trimmer. My candies were individually wrapped, so I used my trimmer.
With guide A in place at the 11 mark, use the blade to cut out your pouch shape. Glassine paper is delicate, but if you follow these tips, your cut will be perfect: Tip #1: Start with the blade in the center and slide the blade to the right edge. Then return the blade to the center and cut to the left edge. Tip #2: Slide the blade swiftly; pausing may cause the blade to catch. Tip #3: When sliding the blade, hold the paper above the guide taut – the extra tension will help the blade move smoothly through the glassine paper.
With the point upward, fold over the sides and secure with adhesive. Fold over the point to close the pouch. I did not seal my pouch at this point, but instead used a binder clip to attach some decoration and close each bag.
I also used the DIY Party Board to create a wrap for my mini cactus. The 8 ounce ice cream cup wrap was the perfect size for this little pot.
I cannot wait to make more party supplies with this handy tool! I have a feeling that this board will stay near or at the top of my collection for quite awhile. Happy creating, and happy Valentine’s Day!
