Hello! I hope you are all having a fabulous fall! I'm so excited to be here today and to share these quick and easy treat bags for Halloween!
This idea was featured in the October 2014 digital issue of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking! They've been a big hit and take only a couple of minutes per bag...super quick and SUPER fun!
So, of course, it's not too late to make a special Halloween treat for your kids, friends and neighbors! I'll include a link below where you can PURCHASE a kit to make 6 of these on your own--for THIS Halloween--there's still time!!
- kraft bags
- scrapbook paper (Fancy Pants Designs, of course!)
- Fancy Pants Designs small Chalk Tags
- Fancy Pants Designs Be Different Ticket Roll
- Halloween paper straws and plastic rings from the dollar store
- black string
- White WATER based Sharpie (for writing on the chalk tags)
Cut your scrapbook paper to fit in the center of the bag (my main paper is cut to 4x6). Then, cut a 2x4 strip to go across the top area and glue them down!
Next, add some glue to the bottom part of your paper straw and glue it down. (We're leaving the top unglued so we can slide our nifty, gifty plastic ring on top!
Next, wrap your string around your bag--all the way around the back and tie a knot.
Now, add your labeled chalk tag and your ticket (from your cute monster style ticket roll--some of the tickets have a hole and some don't--you'll need to punch a little hole in your ticket for the string if there's not one!)
Now you can tie a bow, slide a little plastic ring on top of the straw and drop in some delicious treats! Isn't it the cutest!? Not to mention easy!? You could add a little more detail by using pinking sheers on the edges or a border punch!
Want to make some? If you live in the Continental US, we can get these kits out to you ASAP....and, guess what...we're doing it for ONLY $12 and that Includes Shipping...BARGAIN...but you must live in the lower 48 states....sorry friends that are really far away :)…we totally love you all, but we couldn't get them there in time!
