Weekly Project - Treat Bag

It's time for another weekly project and this week's tutorial comes from Donna who has made this gorgeous treat bag using the Penguin Stuart stamp which is available on the website here at only £3.50.

To begin you will need a piece of card 6.5 inches by 6.5 inches - score on the blue lines and cut on the red lines as shown in the photo below:

Stick front of A to back of B, sandwiching 1 in between, then stick front of C to back of D, sandwiching 2 in between. You will then be left with a box shape as shown in the photo below:
Die cut 2 largest labels (Donna has used Nestabilities Labels 23) out of card and then the next size down out of patterned paper.  Also, die cut or punch a strip of A4 card for handle as shown in the photo below:
Stick the handles to the sides of box and the labels and patterned paper to the front and back as shown in the photo below:
Stamp Penguin Stuart, colour and fussy cut him or her out - Donna has made a girly one!
Stick Penguin Stuart on the front of the bag and decorate with die cut snowflake and sentiment.  Add two bows to handle.

Fill with sweeties!
