I have a tutorial for you all, to make a very quick and easy Christmas treat bag.

Crafter's Inspiration Issue 12 - Winter Edition freebie dies set

Step 1 - Trim a piece of blue Centura Pearl card to measure 8.5 inch  x 10 in.

Score at 4 inch from either edge of the 10 inch length, turn the card and then score 2 inch from either edge of the 8.5 inch length. You will now have a square section at either side in the centre. Snip into both of the score lines of the square until you reach the score line as shown.


Step 2 - Fold all the score lines and glue the sides to create a box. 

Step 3 - From the length of  an A4 piece of Centure Pearl white card, trim a 1 inch piece. Using the cut in border die from the Traditional Wreath die set cut out twice along this piece to create an handle. Trim two pieces of white Centura Pearl measuring 4.5 inch x 3 inch & cut out Mr Snowman on each one. Then attach the handle as shown and adhere both Mr Snowman to the front & back as shown.

Step 4 - Cut out several snowflakes from the freebie die set and affix randomly around the box. Adhere a bow to either side to finish.

Thank you so much for visiting me on the Crafters Companion Mind Blog Hop
