Golden Honey Valentine Treat Bag

Hi Everyone,

Today I have made a classy gold and black treat bag for you to give to your loved one on Valentine's Day.  This is Project No 31 of #31dayscraftchallenge, Hooray! I made it! If you would like to see any of the other projects  have made, click on the links in the right hand side bar.


1 piece of designer series paper 6" x 12"
Scrap of black card stock
Scrap of gold foil
Gold embossing powder
Embossing buddy
Heat Tool
Versamark ink
Detailed Hearts Die
Die cutting machine
Painted Labels dies
Multipurpose adhesive
Velcro dot
Heart to Heart stamp set
Detailed Trio Punch


On the long side, score the dsp at 3 1/2", 5" and 8 1/2", then turn to the short side at score at 1 1/2" and 4 1/2", fold and carefully burnish all the score lines (the dsp is not as think as card and if you are too heavy handed it will tear).

Cut as shown in template (this is just some scrap dsp to show you what it should look like, its hard to see on the black and gold. Please excuse the messy desk and my feet in the shot.)).  The long tab on the right will be the flap on the front.

The small tabs in the centre of the two longer sections need to be wedged and then round the corners on the flap for the front of the bag.

Put adhesive on the inside of the smallest tabs and bring one of the sides round to meet it so that the cut edge of the side is level with the folded edge of the tab.  Then add adhesive to the inside of the other flaps and line them up on the outside of the previous one to make up the bag.  It will look better when its finished, if the folded edge is the one which shows at the front of the bag.

When the glue is dry, pinch the top of the back and front together, this will form a pleat down the side of the bag.  Add the fluffy side of the velcro dot to the inside edge of the front flap and add the hook side on the top of it and fold over to meet the front of the bag.  Then squeeze the two sides together to secure. Open and close a couple of times carefully to make sure that it is secure.

Die cut a swirl from the black card stock and the Painted Labels die.  For the gold hearts, I have run through the die cutting machine a small scrap of gold foil and the detailed hearts die.  I only wanted a couple of the hearts, but you could cut the whole thing and then use that to make a card.

Rub the embossing buddy over the black swirl and stamp a sentiment in the centre with Versamark ink, sprinkle with gold embossing powder and then set with the heat gun and leave to cool.  Add two of the golden hearts underneath the sentiment and then add the swirl to the front of the bag with dimensionals.  Fill with chocs or sweets or your choice. Mine will have mini Toblerones because they are my Husbands favourite.
