Taffy Treat Bag

Saltwater Taffy always screams beach to me. It’s one of those candies that you see at every little tourist shop along beaches everywhere. Today’s summer themed treat bag was inspired by the candy inside.  Good thing there were some leftover candies for me. Yum.

I used a cute swimsuit stamp from Simply Stamps for my tag.

I started with a regular sandwich bag filled with candy. I folded the corners to the back to give it a little better shape and secured it with clear tape on both sides.

Next I cut a piece of light blue cardstock 5 1/4″ x 4″ and scored and folded to make a folded topper that is 5 1/4″ x 2″.

Note***Make sure and check that your bag is the same size. I’m sure different brands of sandwich bags vary a little bit. Adjust the size as needed.

I thought a little texture would be fun so I tore a piece of sandpaper and attached it to my cardstock and then trimmed the sides and bottom. I didn’t measure but it comes to not quite an inch tall at the highest spot. I hand painted a sun in the corner with watercolor paint for a little added something.

Next I started on a tag for my bag. I stamped the Vintage Bathing Suit stamp from Simply Stamps onto white cardstock in bright pink ink.

I added some glitter to the bathing suit and a little shading. I sponged the edges with brown ink and then added a border with a fine black pen. I used a hole punch to make a hole at the top.

I assembled my bag by punching a hole through the topper and bag and then threading twine through both and knotting. I added my tag under the knot. Here is another look at my finished treat bag.
