How to make Sweet Treats
I made these pouches as stocking fillers for Christmas, but they could quite easily be used for weddings or parties too!
Using double-sided paper, cut a square of 15cm and fold it corner to corner to make a triangle.
With the point of the triangle facing up, fold the bottom corners up and across, in turn, to make a pentagon shape.
Finally, fold the top point down and secure with a glue dot or brad or simply fill with treats :-)
How to make pouches
These pouches have been called different things. I’ve seen them called sour cream cartons and pouches, but I think they look like Jublies…..or am I just showing my age with that! :-) I used these to make my Advent Calendar, the only difference being I left the top open, punched a hole centrally and threaded them onto a cord before hanging them up.
Trim a 6x6’’ patterned paper to 10.5cm (apologies for mixing metric and imperial!). Discard the smaller strip.
Stick double-sided tape on both long sides and one short side and remove the backing from all strips.
Roll the paper in to a tube, adhering the short side without the tape to the short side with the tape.
With the seam facing you, pinch one end together making sure the tape sticks together. You should have a wedge shape.
Add your treats to the other end of the pouch and then pinch the top edge together at right angles to the bottom edge.
To give it a professional finish, you can use a paper crimper to crimp the edges.
Finally, punch a hole in one edge and thread with ribbon to trim.
