{Sewn Paper Candy Pouch}


These sewn pouches are really fun and easy to make!
You can probably use any paper and any candy you like (as long as it hides nicely inside)
I used brown/craft/postal paper for these.  It's thick enough to hold its shape, but thin enough to sew with the sewing machine.

Things you will need:

paper
pencil
candy
scissors
sewing machine


Lay out the candy you want to hide inside and draw your desired shape around it, leaving enough room to sew.


Next, set the candy aside and cut out the shape you have drawn.
Make sure the paper is folded in half so you will get 2 exact shapes.


Sew around the edges of your shape, leaving one side/corner/bit open to slide the candy in before you completely sew it up.

Like so:


Once the candy is tucked nicely inside, finish sewing up the pouch.
Leave a few longer strings of thread hanging off to give a good starting point for the tearing into.

That's all there is to it!  If you use blank paper like this craft paper, you could easily stamp or write anything you want on them.  I preferred to keep mine simple.

These would make great stocking-stuffers or class/church treats or even potty-training tools!  What toddler wouldn't love tearing into one of these pouches with a hidden gummy bear inside?


Enjoy!
