I was recently invited to a friend’s BBQ and as I thought her little grandson might be there I made him a bag of treats. As it turned out, he had a better offer and his mummy promised she’d pass this onto him…
To create the bag I actually started with a box tray base. I cut a piece of Pineapple Punch card to measure 4 x 5 inches and scored this on each side at 1 inch. I cut up the score lines on the corner square tabs and glued them to the inside of the rectangle sides to form the tray.
I then cut a piece of the Dinoroar designer series paper (DSP) to measure 6 inches by 10 & 3/4 inches. I scored this on the long side at 1 inch, 4 & 1/16th inches, 6 & 1/8th inches and 9 and 3/16th inches so that it fits each corner of the tray. So that the sides pinch in neatly I also scored the long side at 5 & 1/8th inches and 10 & 1/4 inches. As my scoring board only has grooves every 1/8th of an inch I used the scoring ‘blade’ on my trimmer to score the lines for this project.
I started at the short side of the box and glued the DSP to it and then worked my way around glueing the DSP to each side of the box and eventually overlapping where I started and glueing the 2 edges together.
I stamped the sentiment and (what I presume to be a) Pteranodon in Pretty Peacock ink onto a piece of 2 inch wide Pineapple Punch card. I used the Triple Banner punch at one end and folded the other end over the top of the bag.
As I wanted the bag to be easily accessible I added a retired library clip to close it.
This bag takes quite a few treats and might be a good idea for Halloween too.
