Picked up these bags of pistachios yesterday and thought...hey, I can do that!!! It's the same idea I originally learned from Brian over at Photo Craft...just adding a little twist by using cellophane instead of paper or a photo.
Start with a piece of cellophane 2-1/2" x 4" and 2 strips of printed paper cut to 1/2" x 4" (yay!! Using up more scraps!!!) . Put 2 strips of double stick tape on the back of each strip of paper:
Take one backing paper off each of the strips of paper (leave one of the backing papers on for now)...then adhere the cellophane to the 2 strips of paper as shown:
Now put double stick tape along one side of the cellophane:
Take the backing off the last piece of double stick tape...roll the cellophane into a tube and adhere :
Remove the backing paper off one end, and with seam at the center back, pinch end together:
Add your treats into the pouch at this time...remove the last piece of backing paper and pinch this end in the opposite direction as shown:
I crimped both ends with a paper crimper and edged it with a zigzag scissors, then punched a hole at the top and tied on a tag and flowers..perfect for a summery get-together!!!
Stamps used: #4009 (Sun) and #5047 (Flower Pot). Of course, you can play with the size to suit your needs. This favor comes out quite tiny...but, there's always something extra cute about something so small!!!
