These treat bags are quick and easy to make. You can punch a hole and tie with the ribbon, but I used hidden thin magnets. The bag will hold four Hershey’s Kisses or a diamond ring.

I also show in the video how to make a cord with the Copper Metallic Thread.

Make this box with the Gift Box Punch Board. It’s one of those extra sizes I added in this expanded chart. Add a tag and a cute little gingerbread man holding shiny peppermint candies. The box is just right to hold a gift card and a few candies.

I used the Triple Banner Punch that can make tags 1″, 1 1/2″, and 2″ wide. The Scallop Tag Topper punch is designed for 2″ wide tags, but I share a tip for making narrower tags.

0620161521_resizedI absolutely fell in love with this Detailed Floral Thinlits as soon as I saw it. In fact, I fell in love with the whole suite on pages 76 and 77 of the 2016-2017 catalog. Use 1/2 sheet of any of the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, a few punches and scoring down the track with the Gift Bag Punch Board, add a bit of card stock cut with the Detailed Floral Thinlit, and present a gift with pride.

The0511161319_resized Gift Bag Punch Board directions included in the box were confusing to me. I did what I do. I figured it out and made it simple.

Perhaps you’ve seen my Gift Box or the chart on Pinterest. It’s one of my most popular pins. But it can be confusing! I mean, I didn’t even put a title on the chart or add my email or website. My reader Chandra was totally confused by this footnote:

*1 Slide until corner of the square made by overlapping score lines is at any diagonal, then score to diagonal corner.

What? It made sense to me at the time but it’s gobbletygook even to me now. So I made a video trying to explain each footnote. They may just be more gobbletygook with lots of repeats.

Chandra, let me know if I’ve answered your question.
