Treat Bags

In continuation of the month long party celebration at Cuttlebug Challenge blog, I created two little party favors/ treat bags for my spa themed party. My step-by-step tutorial for both the paper purse and sour cream container can be found here. (I hope you will check it out, and leave me a comment over there as feedback.)

I love making the little purse! It only requires 1 sheet of 12"x12", two 10"ribbons, a slot punch, and adhesive. It has two pockets. I have gifted it for a set of 3"x3" cards; treats; or a 3"x3" card and a gift card. This time I put little samples of face mask, face wash, and lip balm along with a 3"x3" card (using Core'dinations card stock and my Bloom Dots embossing folder.)

The sour cream container is super easy too. I always fill it with chocolate ;)

Happy Saturday!

I used the purse project and my first Holiday Stamp Camp, and it was a real hit! Maybe I'll make some out of my retired DSP for this year's Holiday markets.

Pretty paper, by the way!

I've made the bag before, but not the "sour cream" container. Unfortunately, my creation was pre-blog days (for me), and I gave them away with gifts in them. Maybe I'll have to make some more though!
Yours are beautiful! Love the papers you used!

Any ideas how to crimp if you don't have a crimper ? Could you just score in the area where the tape is ? I want to make pretties like you did !!
