Mini Treat Bag Card

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies make bags that are small enough to fit on a card front. You can tuck in gift cards (or cash or checks) for a gift and card in one.

When you die-cut your Mini Treat Bag, make sure the pinked edges of both dies are headed in the same direction, if your paper has a directional pattern. You don’t have to worry about this if you have an all-over omnidirectional pattern or no pattern. I avoid plaid designs because you really need to match them.

The bag Thinlits only need to go through the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine once. The words, bow and other fine-detailed dies really need 3 or 4 trips through. Place your die and paper in the middle of the cutting pad and on top of the Big Shot Magnetic Platform to make cutting easier. With the die in the middle, you can easily roll it back and forth without having to take your cutting sandwich out of the Big Shot.

One thing I noticed about the Boughs & Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is that it’s larger than the front of a card. I centered the 5-1/4” x 4” layer from side to side and covered the top. When I placed the Treat Bag on the card front, I centered it on the sides and bottom of the layer so the embossed top border would show. You could use the long edge to emboss a border on the envelope flap.

I scored and folded little over 1/2” of the bag top to form a closure. A Glue Dot secured it closed, but it will still open without much problem. The bow is attached to the flap with a folded-over Glue Dot.
