Treat Holder Tutorial for The Kraft Journal

     It's trick or treat time AND it's tutorial time. Today I'd like to show you how to make a very simple treat holder for some Halloween goodies or any other time you might need to package a treat.
     For this project you'll need a Lunch Bag Kraft #10 Open End Policy Envelope, Bakers, Twine, cardstock, embellishments of your choice and a couple of eyelets.

     In this photo I've covered the front half of the envelope and the flap with cardstock. Once you have those two pieces covered you can add your envelope fasteners by using some punched circles, eyelets and bakers twine.

     Next you'll decorate the inside of the envelope with more cardstock and there's your pocket all ready and the perfect size for those little fun size treat bags.

     Here's the outside cover view with the bag all closed up and ready to go. Can't get much more simple than that! :-)

     Hope you've decided to play along with our "Spooky Stuff" challenge this week. We'd love to see your projects! Happy Crafting!
