Years ago, I started making these darling treat holders. They were perfect for popcorn parties at school! It's simple to make and can be jazzed up for older recipients. Just add stamping, decorations, or a fancy handle. Here I used stamps from the recent PMS January Release...Moody for Love and the Love sentiments. The swirlies are from Dream Big, another PMS set. Since the base is a lunch bag...it's cheap. Here's the lowdown:
Get a regular sized lunch bag. Remember they do come in colors. After you see how to make these, you will want to stamp them before cutting and putting it together.
Fold that bottom flap over.
Cut on the edge.
View of the bottom, unfolded.
Then, cut off your "handle" at what ever width you need from the top section of the bag. (Second piece in the pix.) The remaining piece should be about the size of the bottom of the bag. I slip this in the finished bag to get the bag a little more structure.
On the bottom piece, cut the corners, as shown to the fold line.
Fold in all 4 flaps...the base of you bag is now complete.
Take your "handle" and straighten it out a bit.
Staple the handle to both sides. This is a great project to use all those colored staples that you bought, squirreled away and never used. haha.
The finished bag...undecorated.
