~Cut at 3″ x 4-3/4″.
~Score at 1/2″, 3/4″, 2-3/4″, 3″ 2. Attach two Glue Dots close to the 1/2″ score line on the lower flap and two Glue Dots towards the top back of the candy. Attach the candy to the lower flap first, then to the back. Fold top flap over and tuch inside the lower flap. 3. Decorate for the occasion. These are for Valentine’s Day. Stamp the Heart in Real Red Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then stamp one of the other sayings inside the heart. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me position my stamp inside. Cut out with the Heart Framelit. The Heart Framelin in the Mini Treat Bab Thinlits fits perfectly. The Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit is close to perfect, but not the exact shape.
Happy Candy Giving! You can get all the supplies to make these Matchbook Candy Holders from My Online Store. You will need to get the candy from your local store.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Choose the color and pattern of paper you want to use. I chose Mint Macaron. If you are using the striped paper choose the way you want your stripes to go. If you want them up and down like mine, then cut your paper 6″ x 12″ with the stripes 12″ long. The zigzag part of the Thinlit is the top of the bag. 2. Now cut out the Mini Treat Bag using the Thinlit. Make sure the zigzag bag top is positioned so your stripes will be going up and down. Cut out both bag pieces. 3. Fold your Treat Bag pieces on the score lines. Check to see if any of the score lines tore. If they did, the put a piece of regular tape on the inside of the bag over the torn score line OR you could put coordinating Washi Tape on the outside to cover the torn score line. 4. Decide whether the bottom flap will be inside or outside the bag. If it will be on the inside than fold up the flap and put your Fast Fuse on the striped side. If it will be on the outside, then put your adhesive on the solid color AFTER the rest of the bag is put together. 5. Put Fast Fuse on the striped side of the tab and on the edge of the small bag half. Line up the side and bottom. Now attach the tab to the large side edge. Lay the small side flat and overlap the back of the larger back piece. 6. If your flap is going on the outside, add your adhesive now and fold it up. 7. Stamp your sentiment in the same color ink as your paper. Cut it out by hand. Optional: Stamp your image twice. Cut out the inside with the coordinating Framelit included with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit set. You will still have to hand cut the larger outside bottom layer, but this will add a nice layered dimension to your Treat Bag. 8. Cut your Ribbon the desired length with the ends cut diagonal as desired. Attach with a strip or two of SNAIL or Fast Fuse on the back of the Ribbon behind where the Stamped image will cover it. Add your Stamped and cut out image with either Fast Fuse or Dimensionals. 9. Put a small treat or gift inside and give to someone.
