I love this little bags/boxes. And I thought they always looked so familiar but couldn’t figure out where I’d seen them…
And then my friend Danielle said they looked like the popsicle / frozen juice things we used to get with school lunch. Hahaha, yes! Good times, good times.
These are super easy to make and so much cuter than regular store bought treat bags. (Less expensive, too!) Here’s what you need:
-squares of paper. This can be wrapping paper, comic book pages, old book pages, construction paper, whatever you like and have lying around
-tape. Scotch tape and, if you want to go the extra mile, Washi
Cut your paper into squares. I made mine 4×5 inches but you can make them any size you want. (Gratuitous Washi tape photo below. Can we just talk about Washi tape for a sec? I love you so much, Washi tape. You’re so beautiful.)
Roll your paper square into a cylinder and tape it in place leaving both ends open.
Being careful not to flatten the tube, pinch one end closed and fold up a little tab. Tape in place. (Scotch tape for all of these steps. Washi comes at the end.) This is the time to trim if you feel like it needs it.
Fill your bag with little treats or notes and then pinch the other end in the opposite direction, again being careful not to flatten or crease the tube. Fold up a small flap and tape into place.
Aww, it’s so dang cute!
Feel free to decorate your seams with Washi tape like I did or stickers.
All done and a snap to make! <3
