Scallop Card Treat Bag

I am going crazy creating these cute little treat bags! They were inspired by a fellow CTMH consultant, Pam O'Connor...and I ran with her idea! They are so much fun!

They are made with our 6 x 6 Kraft Die-Cut cards (Z1474 10 for $6.95...see page 123 of our catalog). YES I turned our cards into a treat bag and with minimal supplies...this is what I came up with.

First you take the card and open it up. It has that cute little scallop edge on it already! HANDY! So you open the card, but keep the scallop part folded over facing down on your Cricut mat. Oh, did I tell you, you get the oval by cutting it with your Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge! YOU DO! So put the card down on your mat with the scallop fold on your left. Then set your size to 2 1/2". Now you will need to move your blade to the following position. Left/Right 1 3/4" and the In/Out to 0 11/16. This is where you manually move the your screen for the left/right and in/out will come up as you move the blade. I used the Oval 3 on page 42 of the Cartridge book. Cut. Then take it off the mat and score 1 inch on both sides of the score line to have the bag stand up. Then just decorate with your favorite stamps and paper and tada!

I was having so much fun, I had to create on for Halloween, Christmas and Winter! HOW FUN ARE THESE! You simply add a baggie filled with your favorite treat and give to a special friend, teacher, coworker etc. So order your Kraft cards and get started making these great treat bags soon! You just never know when you will need some!
