Party Treat Pockets

by Steph Hung

I’m heading to San Francisco next week to compete in the “Lau Olympics” which is like our family olympics. It’s going to be a showdown of physical challenges like a hula hoop discus, watermelon eating contest, and suitcase relay.  My cousin Sandy asked for help with party favours so I’m planning to make treat pockets. These pockets are a cinch to make and you can put anything in them.  They make tidy snack packs and are a great alternative to the candy bowl that invariably gets mauled by lots of muddy little hands (at least in my family).

Materials you will need:  vellum or parchment paper, double stick tape, 1/2″ coloured tape (trim if wider), scissors, and your choice of fillings – I used candy necklaces, salt water taffy, and candy blocks.

Step 1:  Cut strips of paper:  3.5″x8″ for small, 4″x9″ for medium, and 4.5″x10″ for large.

Step 2:  Place double stick tape along one short end and stick to the other end to form a loop.

Step 3:  Pinch one end and close the opening with a strip of coloured tape.

Step 4:  Fill the pocket.

Step 5:  Pinch the opening in the opposite direction as before and close with coloured tape.

    Those are so cute. I use to make them with Sew edging, but yours are so much easier and pretty! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Great idea! I do tend to wince at events after the kids stick their muddy or sticky hands in the candy/chip bowl. =)

    Mmm… lego candy!

    Love the treat bags. But I want more details on the olympics. Sounds like something we could do here for a party. Let’s see: hula hoop discuss, suitcase relay, and what else?

    What an adorable idea! and @REVITALIZEWITHSTEFANIA , I got Lego candy exactly like that from for the little guys last Christmas, and they were great…not gourmet candy, and really hard to chew (better for sucking on!) but still a great part of the Lego themed gift we did!

    I have made these before for an anniversary party. I used double sided tape to secure inside but used a paper crimper to seal the ends. The tape wasnt visible at all. I also rubber stamped images on the vellum. They were a big hit.
