You Plus Me Stacked With Love "Mini" Mini Treat Bags

My awesome upline Betty's January Stamp Share was last week. We get together once a month and it's something we all look forward to! We do some stamping, share projects we've been working on, talk about Stampin' Up! and have a swap. 

For my swap this month, I decided I wanted to use up what was left of my Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack since I probably won't have another class before Valentine's Day. My first thought was to use the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit, but the paper isn't wide enough. But then I thought, why not just make a narrower bag?


This is how I lined up the DSP. If you look at the bottom, you can see there are 3 1/2 of the zig zags below the paper. This seemed to be the best way to line it up and have the 2 pieces come together nicely. That's actually the backside of the bag, which sticks up higher than the front, so I wanted the zig zags to match up.


I cut the smaller piece like usual


My finished swap. If you make the Mini Treat Bag the usual size, it's 3 11/16" wide. Mine are 3". 


The tag inside- I used the strip of DSP leftover from cutting the smaller piece on these


15 "mini" Mini Treat Bags- all ready to swap!
