Custom Sized Treat Sleeve

Have you checked out the Diagonal Score Plate for the Simply Scored Tool?  It gives the Simply Scored Tool even more possibilities.  At my monthly stamp club a couple weeks back, we made custom sized treat sleeves for a pack of flower seeds.

These little pouches are approximately 6" tall and 4" wide.  They are made with a simple 6x6 square of Designer Series Paper.  We used Comfort Cafe for our projects.  The steps are simple enough to follow.

Step 1:  Score the 6x6 piece of DSP diagonally on all four sides at 2-3/4".  I used a white piece with dark lines for the photo.  

Step 2:  Cut off the little triangles on each side.  Put small bits of adhesive where the red markings are.  We used snail adhesive for our project.  If you plan to put a bulkier item in your sleeve, you may wish to use sticky strip.

Here are a few of the other projects made by the group.  All but the Chocolate Chip sleeve came from Comfort Cafe DSP.  The small tag was made with the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set and Coordinating Framelits.
