How To Fold 6”x6” Paper To Create A Pocket Treat Bag

Several years ago I attended a Stampin’ Up! workshop hosted by a good friend and it was there that she showed us how to fold 6” x 6” paper to create a pocket treat bag to give as gifts.

Have A Hoot Pocket Treat Bag

Just one 6” x 6” piece of patterned paper will give you a two pocket treat bag. Perfect for a special tea bag and small gift card.

Fold two 6” x 6” pieces of patterned paper and you will create a four pocket treat bag, that you could fill with a small chocolate, a gift card and tea bags.

My personal favourite is folding three 6” x 6” pieces of patterned paper, which creates six pockets to fill with lots of small treats.

6” x 6” Pocket Treat Bag Instructions

Visual pocket treat bag instructions

Step 1: Take a 6″ x 6″ sheet of patterned paper.

Step 2: Fold in the right corner and crease at 3.5 cm. Fold in the left corner and crease at 3.5 cm. Note: If you would like bigger pockets crease at increased measurements.

Step 3: Flip over and fold in half, matching points together.

Step 4: Take one point and fold down. Creasing at 2 cm.

Step 5: Repeat with the remaining side.

Repeat with extra paper and glue them back to back to create more pockets!

Punch a hole at the top of the treat bag and thread ribbon through the hole.
