It’s been a while since I’ve done a printable! Sheesh. Well, I’ve got one for y’all today. It’s a candy pouch.
One of the ladies in my neighborhood has not been feeling too well. I was wracking my brain for something cute & thoughtful to do, but all I could think of was to drop by a bunch of packages of Ramen. That’s what makes me feel better. Instead, I think a bright package full of candy might be more on par. It’s a little more thoughtful than stuffing Ramen in a grocery bag. It’s always the thought that counts.
While making this little package I thought I would share with you the pattern & artwork. No need for it to just sit in my harddrive all alone when it can sit on someone else’s too. Right? If you’d like to make your own candy packages like the ones pictured above, here’s what you’ll need:
- a sewing machine
- orange thread (or some other coordinating color)
- bright candy
- a paper cutter
- a hole punch
- matching baker’s twine or ribbon
First, you’ll want to download the artwork (click the download button below) and my post & presents tutorial (click on the last line of the post to download). Then you’ll want to print out the artwork on cardstock. I printed mine at home, but you could easily have this done at your local print shop. Cut off the unprinted edges so the pattern bleeds off the page, then cut the page in half width-wise. Follow the instructions on the post & presents tutorial to make your pouch. Cut out the little tags provided in the download & punch with a hole punch. Use baker’s twine or ribbon to attach the pretty tag & voila. Done. This would be perfect for a party/dinner favor, a little gift for a friend or anything else you can think of. The orange definitely says fall to me, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t use this year round. I do hope you enjoy.
