Coffee Break Mini Treat Bags

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Coffee Break Mini Treat Bags

Today I have a sweet little treat bag to share with you made using the Coffee Break DSP and coordinating Coffee Café Bundle. I used this tutorial by the super talented Sam Hammond of pootles.co.uk to create these lovelies and if you love 3D items like I do, make sure to check out her blog, she has stacks of awesome tutorials there 🙂

This little bag is really quick to assemble and only uses a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper – so very economical as well 🙂 You can make four from each 12″ x 12″ sheet and 48 from a whole DSP pack, perfect for bulk favours or small seasonal gifties – I’m definitely going to be making these again at Christmastime 🙂

I used the Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White and Crumb Cake to close my bags and love the softness and subtle shimmer that it adds. The ribbon just slides off the bag for easy opening and I found it easier to tie a knot before I tied the bow and like the extra security it gives.

My only other embellishment is a sentiment from Coffee Café stamped in Garden Green and die cut with the coordinating framelit. This was layered onto one of the *new* Corrugated Elements – love the texture of these – and attached to the ribbon with Glue Dots.

These little bags measure 1-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ x 1″ and while small, they’re the perfect treat size. These have a Chupa Chup, mini Mentos and a couple of Starbursts in them but I think filling them with chocolate coated coffee beans would have been much better, mmm… 🙂

A Quick & Easy Tutorial:

DSP: 6″ x 6″

  • Score @ 1″, 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 5-1/2″
  • Turn 90º
  • Score @ 1″, 4-1/2″
  • With the 4 score lines running vertically cut up to the 1″ horizontal score line to create the base, remove the small tab on one side
  • Turn 180º
  • Remove the small rectangle from side tab, keep the next section, cut up to the 4-1/2″ score line to create the lid, remove the remaining sections
  • Round the lid corners (optional)
  • Assemble as usual

I hope this is easy to follow, if not, Sam has a video on her blog which is perfect for visual learners.

A short and sweet post from me today to finish off the week. I hope you liked my little bag, they are so cute and if this DSP isn’t your cup of tea – or should that be coffee? 😉 – try it in one that you love with a different sentiment, you’ll be amazed at what a few simple changes can make.
