How to Use the We R Memory Keepers Goodie Bag Guide
Create lovely little treat sacks with this one simple tool, the We R Memory Keepers Goodie Bag Guide, and scrapbook paper you already have on hand.
Hello crafty friends! You know I am a big fan of crafty tools, and by golly do I have a good one to share with you today. This is definitely one of those why didn’t someone think of this sooner kind of tools! It’s called the Goodie Bag Guide by We R Memory Keepers, and it is AH-mazing. The Goodie Bag Guide is a super easy way to make you’re your own glassine bags and treat sacks.
I know, I know. Brilliant!
Here's what you need to make these projects:
- We R Memory Keepers Oh Goodie Guide Ruler
- Maggie Holmes Shine 12"x12" Paper
- Maggie Holmes Shine Embellishments
- Maggie Holmes Shine Wood Words Ephemera
- Adhesive Tape Runner
- White Tissue Paper
Let’s get started! To use the Oh Good Bag Guide ruler, choose a piece of cardstock for each treat sack that you want to make. I chose four 12”x12” pieces. You can adjust the size of bags you make by adjusting your ruler and paper sizes.
Take your 12”x12” paper and align the ruler on the bottom of your paper. Using your ruler, press down firmly while you tear the bottom of each page, using the ruler as a guide. Now, I am left handed so I tear in the direction you can see in the photo. Do whichever way is more comfortable to you! You can totally tear the page from either direction.
After tearing the bottom, do the same on the top of the page. Isn’t it SO COOL how the ruler gives the paper the jagged edge like you see in glassine treat bags? Love it so much.
After tearing the top and bottom, fold the sides of your treat sack using your ruler as a guide. You can fold the paper and score it with your finger while using the ruler.
Fold both sides, using a tape runner to adhere it together in the back. Then use the ruler to create a straight fold on the bottom. I fold about a 1/2” of the bottom up, and use my tape runner to adhere it.
Look at that! So cute and so easy. Now just repeat the process to make as many as you need!
After creating your treat sacks, embellish them if you want to with ephemera, ribbon, and stickers.
Fill your treat sacks, and insert tissue paper. So pretty!
This is such an inexpensive way to make your own treat sacks for a party. Just think how many you can make from a single 12”x12” pad of paper!
I love that you can customize the sizes with the ruler. You could easily make four small treat sacks from a single 12”x12” paper!
