Getting Creative with TREAT BAGS: Interactive Card by Sharm

We are so excited to share our latest Design Team challenge. We're going to be featuring our "Treat Bags" and different ways you can use them. Our team has really knocked our socks off with some amazing ideas and you will love them. Be sure to comment and share what you like...we'll be giving away some packages of these fun items to several lucky winners by the end of this challenge!!

First, lets show you the variety of treat bags we currently offer:


In fact, we're starting off by featuring a fun "interactive card" idea from Sharm. 

Hi there! Sharm here to show you what you can use those awesome treat bags by Doodlebug Designs for. The treat bags need not be used for the conventional treats..but can also incorporated into your paper projects in many ways. 

Some of the projects that I use the treat bags for are as follows: 
1) Storybook / Project Life Cards
2) Cards
3) Banners
4) Layouts 
5) Treat holders!

For my project today, I'd like to share with you a little interactive card I made.

Some close-ups

1) Slit a little strip about the size of the straw that comes in the pixies pack on the side of the treat bag. be careful to create the slit on only the top of the treat bag and that it doesnt cut right through the back.
(this will act as the slider).
* I would recommend that you completely open up the treat bag to do this

2) Put a flag right through the straw and cut off the protruding bits of the straw. You want it to look seamless. Further embellish with flowers etc

3) Cut a piece of cardstock to fit into the treat bag. Embellish the card and slot it into the treat bag. Make sure that part of the cardstock is visible through the slit you just created in step 1 and that it is tight enough

4) Once you have slot the card in, apply a thin line of glue on the slit (onto the cardstock) and adhere the little slider onto it. Once dried, move it back and forth to make sure it's able to move. When you move the slider flag, it should cause the little card inside the treat bag to move up

5) Gently push the card back in. Push the 'Hi' flag upwards to see the card inside the treat bag to pop-up again.

Hope you'll have fun making this!
