Scor-Pal Mid-Month Tutorial

Hi there, crafty friends!

I'm here today with a photo tutorial for these crazy fun, super tiny little gift bags.
When finished, they stand 1 7/8" tall, and are 1.25" square, and hold 2 Hugs or Kisses.
I cannot take credit for the design, but I'm sorry to say that I don't recall whose design it was!

Here are the supplies you will need:

Scor-Pal (I used Scor-Pal Eighths), Scor-Tape, (I used 3/8" tape) Scissors, Hole Punch, Twine

and...patterned paper.
You can use cardstock, but these bags are so tiny that paper actually works best.

Cut your paper to 5.5" x 3"
Score the long side at: 1.25", 2.5", 3.75", and 5"
Score the short side at: 1"

Remove the small section at the bottom, and trim your tab at a bit of an angle.

Cut on each of your fold lines, cutting only up to the 1" fold line.
Mitre the back and two side tabs in a bit, but leave the tab on the front as is.

Add your Scor-Tape to your little flap, and create your box!


 Here's what your box looks like. Now you can see the three angled tabs better.

Add Scor-Tape to your 'front' box flap.

Fold in the three angled tabs, and secure them with the 'front' tab.

Add two Hershey's Hugs or Kisses (or another tiny candy)

After your goodies are inside, gently pinch in your two sides.

Holding tightly, punch two holes for your ribbon or twine.

Add twine and/or decorate as desired!

 Here are the finished bags - perfect for carrying in your purse to give friends, postal workers, etc.

 Easter and/or spring...

For your Valentine...

St. Patrick's Day...

The possibilities are endless!
Give them a try, and have fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.

I've been waiting for this tutorial as I think these bags are just too cute and like you said keep them in your purse or car and give away a token of appreciation. As you know you are queen of boxes/bags and this one is one of the cutest. Off to "see" if I can make one.

You are the Queen of small gift boxes, bags, containers!!!!!! Love these little treat boxes. Might have a go at these, my daughter is a Kindergarten teacher and her little charges would love these with just a little sweet treat inside. Thanks for sharing the excellent directions too.

So cute and sweet. These would be great done in Easter-y papers and put at each place on the Easter dinner table.
