How to Fold Valentine Treat Bags
Time needed: 5 minutes.
Print-at-home, easy-to-make Valentine’s Day party treat bags featuring vintage artwork.
Print out your the vintage Valentine images on a letter-sized sheet of paper. Do not scale the image. Print at 100 percent.
Each printable includes pale blue folding lines. Use the bone folder and scoring board to score each line.
If you don’t have a scoring pad or bone folder, don’t feel you have to run out and buy them. But they will help you get nice, crisp creases, and they definitely makes folding the bags easier.
If you’re planning on making a lot of these treat bags to give out as classroom treats or as party favors, I recommend buying a scoring board and bone folder
To create the bag shape, fold the paper along the outer, vertical lines.
Flip the bag over and use tape to secure. You can use patterned washi tape or clear tape.
Next, fold up the bottom of the bag, following the printed horizontal fold line. Use the bone folder to get a sharp crease.
Open up the bottom section and flatten, folding in the corners. (See the video on this post for a demonstration of how to do this.)
Fold down the top and fold up the bottom portion of this section until they meet, and secure with tape.
Fold the top flap down so the tape is hidden, then flip the bag over so the image is visible.
Fold along the inner printed vertical fold lines, those closest to the image, to create the sides of the bag. It helps to use the bone folder. Fold the paper to the front and then to the back to make it easier to form the sides of the bag.
Open up the bag, flattening the bottom. Pleat the sides using the creases you created in the last step, pinching the outer edges of each side together.
(Again, watch the video here to see exactly how to do this. You can also check out this post for more tips on folding paper into bags, including another video tutorial.)
If you like, use pinking shears or paper edger scissors to trim the top of the bag and create a decorative edge. You can also fold the top of the bag over and secure with washi tape. Or fold the top of the bag over, punch two holes and thread ribbon through them to secure.
Fill with candy, jewelry or another small gift.
