Xyron - Old to New

The Design Team for Xyron was challenged to take an older, well-loved project from our design archives and be inspired to make something new from it.  I chose a treat bag, because I always find these so handy to have for little gifts.  But since spring is here, I was inspired to give the gift of seeds, thus, I created a decorative seed packet.

And here was the original project I was inspired by - Treat Bag.

To make the seed packet, cut a piece of cardstock 10 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 3 1/2" and 7" to divide the paper into thirds.  Turn the paper and score at 1" and 7".  Trim the paper as shown.

The center section is going to be the front of your packet, so fold the outer panels in towards the center.  Put adhesive on the far right panel, and adhere to the back of the far left panel to form the packet. 

At this point, ink all of the edges, and add decorative paper to the front and back of the packet.  Fold the bottom tab up to the front and adhere with the Xyron Mega Runner.  Punch holes on the upper tab and the packet below it to run a ribbon tie through it.  Add stamped designs to finish decorating.
