Boho Indigo DSP Series - Treat Bag (remaking an old favourite!!)

Stampin' Up! Boho Indigo

Today I am remaking an old favourite! It's my super simple Treat Bag / Gift Bag (whatever you want to call it!) made using just one sheet of  6" x 6" DSP

This is an original design of mine that I created way back in 2016. In fact, this design features in two of my most popular blog posts ever! It's been CASED many times too!

Wow we are only at project number 3 of my Boho Indigo DSP Series. There is still so much more to come! 

I've got lot's of other projects to show you too and very soon the new Mini Catalogue will be released featuring the new seasonal range! Are you ready for Christmas?

While this is the third time I've blogged about this little bag, I've made it countless times. Why don't you try making it? I promise you, you will find it so useful for gifting little treats or jewelry. They would be great for wedding favours too!

To make this bag you will need a piece of 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper - for your first make it's probably easier to use a pattern that has no specific direction!

You will need to score the DSP as follows:
  • Score at 1 3/8"
  • Turn paper clockwise
  • Score at 1 3/8" (only to the score line)
  • Score at 2 3/4"
  • Score at 4 1/8" (only to the score line)
  • Score at 5 1/2"
Once you have done this, find your scissors, bone folder and some double sided tape and watch this old video of mine which shows you exactly how to make this style gift bag - just remember I'm using DSP and stamps that have now retired!


Well, that was easy wasn't it! 

Did you know you can make 48 of these treat bags from the Boho Indigo Product Medley or Refill?

To decorate my Boho Indigo DSP treat bag, I've die cut a circle from the Stitched Shapes dies from Very Vanilla cardstock and added a Misty Moonlight scalloped circle behind it using the Layering Circles dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink onto the Very Vanilla stitched circle.

To embellish the bag, I've die cut the teeny flowers from the Well Written Dies and added a Basic Rhinestone in the centre. I've used the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and the thread from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to secure the bag
