I love the look of treats packaged up in glassine bags, but I’ve found that I don’t always have the right size bags on had to fit my needs, especially when I’m interested in packaging some larger sweets, like this full-sized candy bar and long lollipop sticks. Fortunately, it’s super easy to create your own custom treat bags using parchment paper and strong adhesive, like Therm O Web’s SuperTape.

Here’s all you need to do.

Start by cutting a sheet of parchment paper to a size suitable to hold your treats.  I measured the width of my candy bar and then doubled that, plus threw in about an extra inch to allow for the depth of the bar. Basically, lay your treat onto the parchment, and make sure you have enough to fold over and secure the back flap. Fold in the two sides so that they have a slight overlap in back, then secure the flap with 1/4″ SuperTape.

*Note: Parchment paper is glossy, making it a bit tricky to adhere. Try burnishing the SuperTape with a bone folder or wooden stick before removing the red liner.

Fold up the bottom 1/2″, and secure with Super Tape. Then trim the top to size using decorative pinking shears, if desired.

Cut a 12″ x 4.5″ strip of patterned paper. Layer with a contrasting patterned paper cut slightly bigger and adhere the papers together using Therm O Web Mini Tape Runner adhesive. Add machine stitching if desired. Wrap paper panel around the parchment bag and create strong crease folds at the bends. If too much overlaps in the back, simply trim off a bit from each end. Adhere the belly band wrap to the bag using additional SuperTape for a super strong hold.

*Note: for a shabby chic finish, try edging all paper pieces with brown ink.

Cut a strip of Valentine journaling cards from patterned paper and layer with contrasting patterned paper. Add lace trim to the bottom edge using Therm O Web Fabric Fuse Tape. Wrap strip around the parchment bag, securing in the back with SuperTape. Cut a small ticket embellishment from patterned paper and staple to the top of the bag.

Peel and stick a silver Glitter Dust Frame to one of the Valentine journaling cards, and trim out. Die cut a memo paper from pink polka dotted paper and adhere frame to the die cut. Wrap twine around the frame and adhere to the bag.

Adhere a die cut arrow and decorative pins to the bottom of the frame using Zots for Bling.

    Love the little parchment bag. Anyone would be happy to get it. Right now I’m trying to get caught up on some of my layouts of my great grandson.
