Tiny Easter Treat Bags 

This is a really cute idea for quickly making handmade treat holders for Easter treats.  Mine are filled with foil-covered chocolate eggs that match the papers I'm using.  I was able to get 6 small eggs into each of the treat bags.  I'm sure you could also use this for fun-sized candies such as Snickers, etc. And the small size of these treat holders will help you control candy portions.  Another idea is to fill them with small gifts, like erasers or pencil sharpeners, instead of candy.  

I used the Gold Binder Clips, Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes, and a Gold Foil Sheet to accent the window in my treat bag.       


I used Garden Green, Berry Burst and Pacific Point cardstock for my little bags as they were the closest match to the foil eggs I found.  The Happy Easter sentiment is from the You're Inspiring set from the Occasions catalog.     


The measurements for the cardstock and scoring are:

Cardstock:  8-1/2" X 4"

Score on the 4" side at 1-1/2 and flip the cardstock over and score at 3-1/2"

Score on the 8-1/2"side at 2", 4", 6", and 8" and then score down only to the 3-1/2" score line at 3" and 7".  See image below

I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stylus to quickly score my cardstock.  Your cardstock score lines should resemble the photo below, after you cut away and notch the right hand edge. Also cut up to the 1st score line from the bottom on the remaining 3 score lines.

Beginning with the notch at 3", use a ruler and score a line from the bottom of  the 3" mark to the top of the cut line to the left and right of the mark.  Click the image above for a larger image of these score lines.  Do the same with the 7" notch.  These will become the sides of your mini treat bag, once assembled.    

Crease all your lines.  Then turn the short lip up and using a 1" circle punch, punch a centered hole in the second square.   See photo above for placement. 

Cut a small 1-1/2 X 1-1/2" window sheet and adhere it to the inside of your treat bag with glue dots.  Then, using the 1" circle punch first and then the 1-3/8" scalloped circle punch, create a gold frame from a Gold Foil Sheet to adhere around the window on the outside of your box.  

Crease the fold lines similar to the layout above.  Seal the side and bottom of the box with Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse.  Fill with chocolate eggs, and close the top with the Gold Binder Clip.  Stamp the Sentiment from You're Inspiring in Basic Black Archival Ink, and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Add a Gold Metallic enamel to the sentiment, and adhere to the bag with mini dimensionals.
