Thanksgiving Treat Tags Tutorial with Simple Stories Autumn Splendor for Throwback Thursday
Hello, Friends! For this episode of Throwback Thursday, I have a Thanksgiving Treat Tags Tutorial to share with you. We’re playing with our Simple Stories Autumn Splendor Collection, Graphic 45 Large Kraft Tags, G45 Large Tag Die, Prima Autumn Sunset Flowers and bits and bobs from my stash.
These little treat pockets are quick and easy to make, which is always nice during a busy holiday season.
Each tag is filled with a tea party for one.
These make adorable place cards on a Thanksgiving table.
If you are hosting a Thanksgiving buffet, the pocket is a great place to put napkin and silverware. You could tuck in a little Andes Mint treat along with the flatware to make it extra special.
The tutorial below will show you how to transform that large kraft tag into a nifty pocket.
Quick How-To Guide and Measurements
You are going to love how easy this project is to make.
- First, place a G45 Large Kraft Tag on your scoring tool so that the rounded edge is on the left.
- Now score the tag at 5 1/2″ and again at 6 1/2″. Fold and burnish the scored lines. Fold the bottom end of the tag up to form a pocket without sides.
- Then die cut patterned paper with the G45 Large Tag Die. Try to use paper that has a non-directional pattern on the back side.
- Now cut the tag liner at 5 1/4″. Adhere the top half of the liner to the tag base. Trim 1/8″ off the bottom piece that has the square corners. Then place the rounded corners on the left hand side of your scoring tool and score at 2″. Set this piece aside.
- Next, cut (2) 2″ squares of heavy kraft cardstock. Score 1/2″ flaps on both sides. Fold and burnish the scored lines. These are the sides for your tag pocket.
- Then adhere the 1/2″ flaps to the back side of the pocket flap and to the tag base.
- Now line up the rounded corners of your tag liner with the rounded corners of the pocket and adhere.
- Finally, decorate your tag with ribbon, flowers, ephemera and charms.
You could easily use this same design for Christmas party, Baby Shower, Birthday or Bridal Shower, too. One of the other things I love about this project is that you can use up scraps of designer paper to dress up the tea party goodies.
So dig into your stash of fall papers, and let’s get started making these clever tags!
