DIY treat bags

Hello friends!
I am back again at the blog with a DIY tutorial. 

We often give out gifts to kids for birthdays or even as birthday return gifts. How about making environment-friendly treat bags to give these gifts. 

Today, I am going to show you how to make pretty treat bags using two stamp sets - Hogs & Kisses and Peek-a-boo from Craftyscrappers.

Here's a look at the treat bags!


Materials needed to make these treat bags 
A4 sized coloured papers
Stamp sets (Peek-a-boo and Hogs & Kisses)
Archival ink
Zig clean markers (or your choice of colours)
Scrap papers
Satin ribbon/twine
Foam adhesive

A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.

I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge. Folded the remaining paper into half. 



Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper and one and a half inch at the other end. 



 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 


On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.


 I took Archival ink and my favourite stamp set. I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.
Here, I have used different coloured papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly colour these stamped images. 


Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags. 


The treat bags are ready. 



On a watercolour cardstock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Coloured the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 


Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 


Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.


 Here are all the finished treat bags. 








 Hope you enjoyed making these Eco-friendly treat bags. 
Wasn't it easy and exciting to make these?

I would love to hear from you.
