It's time for another Method Monday and today Kristine is going to share a fun way to package up some goodies for those little valentines in your life!
It’s hard to believe that Valentines Day is right around the corner! But there is still time to whip up some fun, cute treat bags for the kids in your life. When my kids were little I loved making these little bags for my kids to take to their friends.
You’ve probably seen Bag-A-Lopes before made out of large envelopes to make gift bags but these Bag-A-Lopes are made out of standard business size envelopes which turn into the perfect size goodie bags.
-No. 10 envelopes (4 1/8″ x 9 1/2″}
-multiple printed or stamped images (I used Heartful Chloe)
-Markers, pencils, or other coloring implements
-Score-Pal (or alternate method of scoring)
-yummy goodies to put in your bags
To make your bag-a-lope, first seal your envelope.
Score envelope 1″ around on three sides and across the bottom corners.
Print out and color your images for your bags. I used Heartful Chloe and typed the sentiment below her.
Cut the images down to 2” x 3” and back with a slightly larger panel of cardstock before adhering to the bagalope in between the scoring lines.
This step gets a little tricky but I know you can do it! Open the envelope at the top where you cut the 3 inches off and fold on the creases to create the sides and bottom of the of the bag-a-lope.
STEP 6: Fold the pointed flaps on the bottom underneath the bag and secure with adhesive.
STEP 7: After filling the bag-a-lope with some goodies fold the top of the bag-a-lope over away from you and punch two holes through the fold. Tie a piece of ribon through the holds and secure with a bow to hold the bag closed.
These adorable little bag-a-lopes would be great for anytime you need a favor bag. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you’ll give it a try the next time you need some goodie bags!
