Penguin Treat Bag with Tutorial

Good morning, Steph here. Did you know that some of the new Stampavie Christmas stamps can be used for projects other than a card? These images are a little larger and lend themselves perfectly for place settings or candy bags for someone special on your Christmas list. Isn't this Penguin just the cutest you've ever seen?

Cut cardstock 3 1/2" x 10".
Score at 4", 4 1/2", 5" and 9".
Accordion fold on the first 3 score lines and fold on the last one.

Cut pattern paper from the Bo Bunny Mistletoe Collection to fit the front of the bag and the flap and then adhere.

Line up a Spellbinders oval die in the center of the front and die cut through the two layers.

Stamp the Penguin on Cryogen white cardstock, my cardstock of choice when using Copic markers. Color the image with Copic Markers - several shades of red for the hat and candy cane, yellow-red for his beak and feet and then C3, C5 and C7 to color his fur.

Fill a cellophane bag with peppermints.

Punch two holes through all layers (including the cellophane bag) and tie with
Twine.   Twine and more are on sale this week!  Click here for the coupon code and details.

Adhere the Penguin to the bag with Joy foam adhesives, being sure not to adhere it to the flap. The accordion bottom allows the candy bag to stand on it's own, so why not make several of these for friends and family this holiday season? 

I also made another candy treat bag using this cute Mouse with Stocking.

 I love these little bags!   Thanks, Steph!!
