Sweet Little Treat Bag with Topper

Gusseted Bag with Topper - 1

I'm so excited to share this sweet little bag with you today!  One of my team members, Anita Dickson, shared this fun project at my team meeting last week and I could not wait to try it out!  I have directions below, or if you prefer a video tutorial check out my Facebook Live making this project.

This cute little box is small – just the perfect size to fit two mini Ghirardelli chocolates! The box is approximately 2 1/2' wide by 3 3/4" high. For comparison I took this photo with my paper snips!

For the bottom of the box start with a piece of cardstock 4" x 7 1/8". Place the short edge at the top of the trimmer and score it at 1". (I traced the score with a marker so you could see it better in the photo).

Now place the long edge at the top of the scoring tool and score at 2 3/8”, 2 7/8”, 3 3/8”, 5 ¾”, 6 ¼”, and 6 ¾”.Gusseted Bag with Topper - 5

Remove the rectangle at the end completely as shown above. Then cut a small wedge out of each side of the center tabs.

The topper is next! I'm showing it in a neutral so that you can see the score lines – but use a pretty Designer Paper like the Needlepoint Nook that I used above! Start with a piece of Designer Paper that is 2 3/4" x 7 3/8". Lay the long edge at the top of the scoring tool and score at 1/2", 1", 3 1/2", 4" , 4 1/2", and 7". This adorable box was created and share by a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from the Netherlands, Mirande Utrecht at Creamade.com

I used Tear & Tape to assemble. If you would like to see a video of putting the box together, check out this Facebook Live video that I did tonight for the step by step assembly – I also share a cute card made with this paper in the video. I am doing a Facebook Live video every Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. CT – hope you can join me next week!
