Quick and Easy...

candy pouch! Here is another great treat package for scouts, classmates, office friends (!), etc...keep in mind you can adapt this for any holiday occasion just by changing the paper, stamps, candy, etc...the best part is, you can make it fairly cheaply because it is made out of lunch bags and you can yield two pouches from one bag!

Here is the finished version...it was hard to photograph as you can tell...
click on photo for a closer view. All images are by CC Designs, Halloween set.



And here is the how to:

Supplies: lunch bag, ink, stamps, crimper, adhesive, scrap for tag, scissors, hole punch, string or ribbon or twine, circle punch...



Step 1: Fold bottom flap of bag back and cut just above, discard bottom.




Step 2: Cut bag in half...



Step 3: Trim off top portion...just below half circle opening...you can trim an additional inch or so if you would like your pouch to be a little bit shorter - this will work well if you have "short" candy to put inside!




Step 4: Stamp/decorate front portion of one half of lunch bag. Color images if desired. Cut half circle from top with circle punch.



Step 5: Apply adhesive to open sides and bottom. Because it is a lunch bag, you will have more folds/flaps than just using a piece of card stock...just place adhesive wherever you find extra openings.





Step 6: Run bottom through crimper (approx 1 inch.)



Step 7: Stamp ghost on scrap card stock and cut out. Punch hole for string. Wrap string around pouch and adhere tag. Fill with candy and/or pencils, etc... Enjoy!!

I hope this is clear enough...if you have any questions, please send leave a comment or send me an email!
Stay tuned for more fun projects - the wheels are turning!!!!
See you soon...
