We had a wonderful weekend with our granddaughters Nora and Fiona! Those little gals kept Papa and Nana so busy with activities and chatter we both let out a sigh of relief when we handed them over to Mom and Dad! I was especially proud of Jim surviving church with a little one on either side of him! I was able to sit with them briefly, but when you are the church organist you have duties that keep you from sitting with the family most of the service. Many guys would have said ‘ain’t no way!” but Papa Jim handled it like a pro. I did see him split a tiny bag of sixlets between them, and with a few stickers from Sunday School and the promise of the church Easter Egg Hunt after the service it was enough to keep them quiet and focused! So we breathed that sigh of relief on the hour drive home after dropping them off, only to come in and comment that the house was too quiet without them. Wish they were closer but we also are thankful they are just 3 hours away versus a full day’s drive or even halfway across the country. In that we are fortunate and blessed.
A Fast Treat Bag Idea To File And Keep!
This bag is super simple to make and assemble! Truly no PDF tutorial is required! Start with a piece of DSP measuring 10 and 1/2 inches by 6 inches. Score on the long side at 2 and 1/2, 5, 7 and 1/2, and 10 inches. Rotate the DSP a quarter turn to the short side and score at 2 inches. Burnish all score lines with your bone folder. Remove the little rectangle formed by the 1/2 strip and the 2 inch score line. Cut and notch all of the score lines up to the 2 inch score line to create the flaps of the treat bag bottom. Using tear and tape on the 1/2 strip fold over the sides of the box. Place tear and tape on the inside of the bottom flap and fold in to create the bag. Push the sides of the bag in making a gusset, and pinch the top together with a clothespin or large paper clip. I was able to slip the folded sides of the bags into a small circle punch and punch a 1/4 notch on both sides of the bag. These notched sections provides a place for the ribbon or baker’s twine to stay in place when tying the bag closed. Embellish the front how you choose!!! I layered Encircled In Beauty dies and Layering Circle dies for the front but there are so many other possibiities.
