Sweet Treat Pouches - Papercraft With Crafty's Sunday Pictorial

These sweet little treat pouches are super quick and ridiculously easy to make.

I used the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper for these, as the papers are already conveniently cut to the right size for each pouch.

They may sound small, but they do hold a fairly generous amount.  I was able to fill mine with almost a full pack of chocolate coins.   Those you see in the photo are just a fraction of the contents of my treat pouch.

This step by step pictorial will illustrate just how nice and simple they are to make-

1.   You need one sheet of 6 x 6 DSP plus two strips cut @ 5/8 x 6 inches.

2. Adhere them as shown below.

3.  Turn the paper over and place double sided tape down one side and along the bottom.

4.  Next roll the DSP gently in your hand, in order to get the DSP to curve as shown below.

5.   Next, remove the protective backing on the side strip of adhesive tape, and leaving the bottom strip of protective backing in place.  Gently fold over WITHOUT CREASING THE DSP so that  the paper joins and adheres together, with the seam to the right-hand side.

6.  Now remove the protective backing on the bottom piece of adhesive strip and stick the bottom together.  Your pouch should now look like this:-

7.  Next, with the seam to the back, pinch the top part together.

8.  Take a hand-held punch and punch two holes as shown below.

9.  Fill with your treats and thread some decorative ribbon through the holes and tie yourself a nice decorative bow.

10.  Decorate the front of your pouch.   I used my Starburst Punch, 2 inch Circle Punch and 1 3/4 in Circle Punch together with a sentiment from the Labels To Love stamp set, and finished off with a cute Stitched Felt Embellishment.

Told you it was easy !!!

I have decided to add here a video tutorial I made some while ago for a much larger treat pouch.  The process used is exactly the same in principle to the steps illustrated above.

These can be knocked out very quickly.  Ideal if you are preparing for Craft Fayres.

Hope you like today's project and I do hope you will pop back tomorrow for Project No 7 in my Countdown to Christmas.
