The internet has taken very fondly to my unique treat pouch designs so I was inspired to add another design to the mix ~ boho rainbows! Perfect for that special rainbow-baby baby shower or first birthday party, or any other event that needs a little something special. The ability to customize our exclusive, Boho Rainbow SVG file is almost endless… so I’m sharing just 4 ways you could use it below. Your color of paper, your favorite rainbow treats, and the saying of your choice will make the most adorable favors that are sure to impress your guests!
The Choice Is Yours
You can see just how different one file can look! Paper color and candy type, along with the saying you choose to add, will make these favors a truly unique treat.
Create In Design Space
The first step is to login to Design Space and start designing your treat pouches! Stop by our craft file shop to purchase our exclusive Cricut cut file. Upload it to Design Space using the “upload” button on the left tool bar. Locate the file on your computer and select to add it to your canvas.
HOW TO EDIT:
Step 1: select all three “cut” lines in the layers panel. Under the “Operation” dropdown select score. After you make this change the three lines should then turn to dashed lines.
Step 2: add your own text! I filtered my text options by choosing the ones that had a “writing” style, since I knew I was going to use the Cricut pens.
Step 3: Then select the 3 score lines, the added text, and the card itself and click attach. This ensures that the Cricut will score the lines right where you want them to and place the text where you have placed it here.
Step 4: Select the pen color and type you are using for the text.
Step 5: Cut! You can fit 2 on one 8.5″ x 11″ page or 3 on a 12″ x 12″ page.
Let Your Cricut Work It’s Magic
Following the prompts to insert the pen, scoring wheel, and fine point blade when needed.
Crafters Tip: this file has delicate details! If you’re having cutting problems you’ll want to make sure you have a sharp blade and a sticky mat, along with the proper cut settings for the type of cardstock you are using. I actually had to replace my blade during this project and I tried cutting a cardstock that had some texture to it, and it didn’t work out well.
Carefully Remove From The Cutting Mat
Fold On The Score Lines
Gently fold the cardstock on the score lines that your Cricut created.
Fill The Treat Bags
Each of the 3″ x 4″ treat bags will take a little less than a 1/4 cup of candies. Peel off the sticky backing to seal the bags. The bags also perfectly fit 4 Smarties! I used Rainbow Nerds, Easter M&M’s, and Starburst Minis.
Assemble Your Treats
Now we are going to staple the candy bag inside of the pouch.
- Set the treat bag right the middle of the folded card.
- Fold the rainbow cut-out side up to the bag and staple.
- They should be able to stand up by themselves.
- Add a line of hot glue right underneath the flap
- Fold the back side up and around
- Fold the flap with the hot glue to cover the staples
- Press firmly to seal!
Always Look For Rainbows
What special event on your horizon will these darling rainbow treat pouches be perfect for? A baby shower? A first birthday party?
