The project I’m sharing with you today is a quick & easy St. Patrick’s Day favor that I whipped up for my kiddos’ classmates and teachers. I have a hard time sending my kids to school empty-handed on holidays, but that’s the nature of being a paper crafter, isn’t it? I adore spreading the handmade love. Here’s my super simple favor:
This favor can be adapted so easily for any occasion! I’d like to give a shout out to fellow demonstrator, Georgia Giguere, for being the mastermind behind this quick & easy project!
I opted to use Cucumber Crush paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. All it takes is a 4-1/2″ x 3″ piece of paper, scored at 1″ on the 3″ side and scored at 1″, 2″, 3″ and 4″ on the 4-1/2″ side. Cut away the little section that measures 1/2″ x 1″, which will leave you with a 1/2″ tab along the 3″ side. Then, along the 4-1/2″ side, cut up to the 1″ score along the 4 score lines. This will create the 1″ x 1″ bottom flaps of the “bag”. Assemble the bag together by adhering the tab to the opposite side and then folding up and adhering the flaps to create the bottom of the bag. Add a little goodie to the bag, pinch the top of the bag by joining the front to the back, and staple it closed! So easy! I finished it off with a little bow created with the Metallic Ribbon Combo pack (free with a $50 order now through March 31) attached with mini glue dots.
I whipped up 50 of these babies in a snap, which, for this full-time working mom of 2 who saves everything until the last minute, is one of my favorite types of projects – tee hee!
I hope you enjoyed today’s quick & easy project! Let me know if you have any questions!
