Cute Vintage Vogue Treat Bags

Joanne, a fellow Demo on ILWS has made a cute little treat bag which involves no cutting at all. It's similar folds to the boxes we made at the Extravaganza and a pretty neat idea it is too. The bags that Joanne made were created from one sheet of A4 and I wanted to make something a little smaller so using her design and adjusting the measurements slightly I came up with one made from an A5 piece of cardstock.

Once I'd made one I got a bit carried away and made another 3 for my crafting friends. Each one has some choccie inside of course. ;) The colours used, from left to right are Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede and Pale Plum. I can't keep away from these colours at the mo - luv 'em.

Absolutely gorgeous Jo.

I haven't ordered that Stamp Set here in Aus yet but have been seeing so many great project using it. Your project has "sold" me so off to place an order now.

Wouldn't these just make the most fantastic little hostess, stamp camp or thankyous.

These little bags are fabulous! Please could you send me the amended measurements please for the A5 version. I'd love to make a range of them like you have to showcase on our wedding stall in August. Thanks Caroline
