Today I have a Treat or Gift Bag to share with you. This is quick and easy. I used a variety of punches to make it faster and I really like the outcome.
Most of the work for this project is already done for you. This bag is from the 2023-2025 In Color Treat Bags. All of the new In Colors are represented in this package of bags. There are 25 bags included, 5 of each New In Color, for the reasonable price of $10.00.
To create my bag, I used the Paper Trimmer to make a slit across the bottom to open the bottom of the bag. I then cut up an inch from the bottom on each side. The last touch was to score at 1/2″ on each side all the way down the bag. By cutting and opening the bottom, I was able to create a flat bottom.
The ribbon is wrapped around the folded over top of the bag and secured in place with a glue dot. It will slip over the fold to open. The bow is made separately and also added with a couple of glue dots. They are strong and my go to for bow adhering!
This tag may be a bit more elegant than you would think for a guy. It has the filigree look at the top. But that is mostly covered and doesn’t really show all that much. I do love this new tag punch though! It is the Elegant Edge Punch. It will create a tag up to 2″ wide. That is the width of this one. And it is 3 1/2″ long.
The circles are made using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and the 2″ Circle Punch. I am so thrilled that Circle Punches are available again! Punches are so quick to grab when you need a simple layer. The stamp is from the He’s All That stamp set. I love the retro bus and it looks great in just one color.
Colors and Finishes
I chose to use the Copper Clay version of the Treat Bag, so made the tag in that color. As well as the stamped image. To add some contrast I turned to another of the New In Colors and went with Wild Wheat. The ribbon is really nice with just a touch of a sheen to it. And the circle layer fits perfectly. The finishing touch for Bling is a bit different. At least it is positioned differently. I used two of the 2023-2025 In Color Dots in Wild Wheat to cover the wheels on the van. That is a retro look that has returned. But we must have bling!
