Today it's my turn to share a tutorial with you for Bugaboo Stamps, you can see my final product on the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog! So are we ready to see what we are learning to make today? Okay, here it is, we are making what I call a 'Treat Goodie Bag'!
1 - 12" x 12" sheet of DP
Cutter or Scor-Pal
Double Sided Tape
hole punch or crop-a-dile
First decide what paper to use, I pulled out some great Halloween paper to go with this super cute Hoppy Halloween image!
Scor along the top of the paper at 1", 5", 7", 11", then turn the paper to the right and scor along the 1", 4", 5", 6", 9", 10" and 11". At the 5" mark cut over 2" and down 2" and remove that square. Then cut over to the 8" mark and then at the 7" mark and cut down 2" from there and again across along the same line to the 12" mark. I did this on 12" x 12" paper so that we could create two Treat Goodie Bags out of one paper, more bang for the buck! Fold and score over those lines so that the lines are more defined and easy to create with.Now use the top piece to make one, cut the first 1" x 1" square, leave the 3" piece where it is and cut away another 2"s, leave the 3"s following that cut and continue to the rest of the 12" x 12" paper. Also make tabs along the bottom two flaps so that you can attach the entire paper together for the goodie bag! Place stips on the tabs on the bottom and along the 1" side to the left.Begin attaching the sides with sticky strip so that the edges can attach into a bag. Once your goodie bag is attached you have to decorate! I decided to add some ribbon to mine, it's also a great way to hold the whole thing together. I used my crop-a-dile to thread the ribbon along the top and tie a bow. I love this ribbon by the way, it's prefect for this patterned paper too! I then added some pop dots to my main image so that it would pop off the goodie bag, just a little added dimension. That's the last step, attaching the image! Of course you should fill it with candy before you tie the bow, but those are little details and I have no candy on hand...that's right all, I am on a diet for the time being. Here is my final product!Hope you enjoyed my tutorial, these things are a lot of fun to make. Not only did I create this fun Goodie Bag as part of my tutorial, but I also played along with the current Christmas Stampin' All Year Round Challenge, which was to create a card that is a non-Christmas card, Halloween totally counts! My creation today also follows the JUGS Challenge, or Just Us Girls, the challenge was to create something with a template, so I made my own! or Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
