Hello Sizzix Crafters! Welcome back…it’s Aida from Life and Paper Crafting! The season of celebrations and gifting is upon us again. Making sweet tokens for guests who visit is always such a pleasure.
Lynda Kanase has designed the Sizzix Gift & Gather die collection to help you quickly create easy projects. Today I’d like to show you what I made with her Thinlits Treat Pouch Die Set. This set has three accent tags you can use to make each pouch different—how cool is that?

Die-cut the largest Thinlits. This die has two score lines: to the left right edge of the shape and one in the center. There are two curved tops with four holes for threading a ribbon through.
Fold in half (along the score line) and fold right flap over. Glue down to create a flat envelope.
Push the two corners at the lower ends to get a triangular shape. Flatten the end and staple with the Tiny Attacher. This way the pouch is secure, and the bottom will not fall apart when you fill it up.
To hide the staple and make the pouches more decorative, adhere a thin strip of coordinating patterned paper.
Next die-cut the floral accent in white cardstock. This is such a delicate and pretty shape, and the two holes in the design make it easy to tie to the pouch.
I found adding a little glue will help keep this floral die-cut in place.
Thread a matching ribbon through and tie into a bow. Do the same with the other Pouches using the other sentiment tags.
Here’s a closer look at the tag details. I love how the design is so fine and delicate. Imagine your guests sitting down for dinner with these elegant favors on the place settings!
I hope this quick tutorial will inspire you for this coming holiday season. Thank you for stopping by!
