Use the Martha Stewart Score Board to score the 4” x 12” cardstock at these intervals beginning from the left edge: 5”, 6”, 7” and 11”.

From the Nestabilities Labels One set of dies, going smallest to largest, take the 3rd largest die. Place the die on the section between the 7” and 11” scored lines. Center the die and use the Big Shot to cut out, following the manufacturer’s directions. This makes the window.

Take the 4” x 4” coordinating cardstock and place the 5th largest die in the center. Now place the 3rd largest die inside of it, creating a frame. Center and cut out. Place the frame around the window cut-out and tape in place.

Fold at the 5” 6” and 7” scored lines, forming a gusseted in the middle, this creates the “tent”.

Optional: Place the 4” x 5” printed or contrasting cardstock on the section without the window. Tape in place.

Fill clear treat bag and staple or tape closed. Fold over at the 1” score line above the window. Place the treat bag on the inside of the window and tape the inside. Tape the folded edge to the back cardstock. Use the corner rounder to round out the top corners.

Embellish as desired with buttons, stickers, ribbons, etc.
