Hello there! Check out this sweet treat bag, it was quick and easy to make, and I thought it would be perfect to showcase it for the Stampin' Royalty challenge this week. The challenge this week is a color challenge, so take a look at the colors, create something fun and head on over to the Stampin' Royalty to link it up.
I could not make it to convention this year, but I was able to stream the opening ceremony on YouTube. This cute little bag was demoed, it was super easy and quick, so I thought I would share with you how to make it.
Lay your Tag a Bag gift bag out with the opening at the top. Score on the right side at 1 inch, score on the left side at 1 inch, and score on the bottom at 1 1/2 inch. Cut just a teeny bit off the bottom to open up the bag. Cut up from the bottom on each side until you reach the 1 1/2 score mark. Reinforce your folds, open it up, gusset the sides, glue the bottom flaps together, and you are done. SU also suggested to use the cardboard that comes in the package, cut to a bit less that 2x3 to reinforce the bottom to make your bag a bit more sturdy.
All that is left is to decorate it. The Chalk Talk bundle makes it easy. I stamped in Bermuda bay, and pear pizazz, snipped out the "something" and popped it up with dimensionals.
I decided to fold the top backwards, punch two holes and secure the tag with ribbon. Pear pizazz chevron ribbon and Bermuda bay taffeta ribbon secures the tag to the bag. Basic rhinestones bling it up. The tag is free flowing and not attached with adhesives, just the ribbon.
Super cute, quick and easy, just fill with goodies and give away. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
