Who is a fan of the iconic s’more? It seems like everything in the stores this time of year is replicating the awesome flavors of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. I’ve given away s’more treat bags for years to teachers, coworkers and friends. But, I wanted to revive this idea with an easier way to make a s’more that I saw online recently, using the CutCardStock papers, of course!
This treat bag comes fully equipped to create your very own microwavable s’more! The only problem is that your recipient may not want to open it because of all the cuteness!!
How to Make S’more Treat Bags
Okay, to make 1 bag, you are going to start with a 4.25″ by 5″ piece of Vanilla Bean Brown card stock. Score this piece at the halfway point on the long edge to create a tent. Set this piece aside.
Next, you’ll be cutting 1 square of each in the following colors and sizes: Vanilla Bean Brown at 3″, Basis White 80lb. at 2 and 7/8″, and Ginger Snap Brown at 2 and 1/4″. Take these squares and layer them, matching them up in one corner. Then, take a scallop circle and lay it over the matched-up corner, and run it through your die-cut machine. This creates the layered effect of someone taking a bite of the s’more!
Now, I dusted the edges of the Ginger Snap Brown and Basis White squares in brown ink, to give the look that it has been toasted. I take the same ink and stencil some brown polka dots on the Ginger Snap Brown square. Voila! Instant graham cracker!
These pieces are glued together, then glued to the Vanilla Bean Brown tent in the left corner. After that, I’ve taken a die-cut alphabet set and cut the word S’MORE out in Basis White. This is also dusted with brown and then adhered to the front of the tent.
Using a stamp from my stash, I’ve added the word “sending you” to the graham cracker. Then, my final addition is a PopTone Wild Cherry heart die cut, and the first of my S’more treat bags is complete! Attach this tent to the top of your treat bags with either double-sided tape or a staple.
So – as an added treat, I’m sharing with you a picture of an assembled s’more too! These are so easy and eliminate the “middle man” – the chocolate bar! Of course, you can make them any way YOU want, but using the fudge stripe cookie saves you time and is just as yummy.
I recommend microwaving only for a few seconds, 5-7 seconds at most. And then – enjoy your summer treat! Don’t forget to add this idea to your Pinterest boards too!
