"Hello, it's Sheri joining you! One of my favorite ways to personalize a celebration is with coordinated loot bags and party favors. I have a very simple tutorial to share with you today on how to create slim style treat bags, as well as how to create wrapped chocolate bar party favors to share with your guests.
To create a slim style loot bag, first determine the desired size. The ones I created measure 4 1/2” wide and 6 1/2” tall. Score two lines as shown to create crisp folds.
Adhere adhesive along the bottom edge of the middle portion, as well as along one edge.
Fold the edge without the adhesive over first, followed by the edge with the adhesive.
Embellish as desired, and fill with goodies! I used a combination of die cut doilies, tags, and tassels. Have fun…anything goes!!!
To create wrapped chocolate bar favors, first select a patterned paper to use as your base, or opt for a pretty gift wrap as I used for my examples. (*tip - The thinner the paper, the easier it is to create neat folds.)
Trim the patterned paper to size, center and fold over candy bar. Apply adhesive on the underside of the patterned paper to create an invisible seam.
Once your candy bar is wrapped, it’s time to embellish as desired.
I couldn’t resist using these 4x4 and 4x6 cards from Bo Bunny’s “You’re Invited”collection. To create a crisp edge, I scored the top and bottom edges.
Adhere the 4x4 and 4x6 card toppers to the candy bars, wrap with decorative twine, and embellish as desired. (I used a combination of die cut and punched shapes, number stickers, and dimensional flower stickers.) Once again, anything goes! You can design a matching set, or give each one a unique touch.
