Hey crafty friends. I’m back for a Monday Minute with some adorable and easy Halloween Treat bags.
I just love it when I can find a tutorial to do something fun with the crafting supplies that I already have in my stash.
Not only did I use supplies from my stash, but this was a project that was quick and easy to put together.
This weekend my grand kids are going to be visiting. We’ll be having dinner and carving pumpkins. It will be a house full of fun, but that’s the best kind. Right?
I’ve been looking for some ideas for a special Grammy treat that I could give them. When I saw this tutorial on one of my Facebook Groups. It’s by Crystal over at the Cut Card Stock Blog.
Be sure and check out her tutorial. I knew that it was one that was perfect for what I wanted to do. If you make some of these, be sure and let Crystal know how much you enjoyed this project!
I had some little 3″x 9 1/2″ treat bags that were left over from last Christmas. They worked out perfectly for this project. I had to cut them a little shorter, but at least I didn’t have to get anything new.
They don’t hold lots of candy, but then again I won’t have the mommies mad at Grandma for sending their kids home with too much sugar. (That doesn’t happen though…does it?)
Materials That I Used:
- Heavy Kraft Card Stock
- Twine from the Dollar Tree
- White Cardstock
- Orange Cardstock
- Sizzix Framelits Circle Dies
- 1 inch Circle Punch
- Paper Trimmer
- Score Board
- Cricut Explore (optional)
- Cuttlebug for die cutting
- Spectrum Noir Markers (optional)
I experimented a little and made the bottom on one a little larger. Either way works well. My smallest circle die went missing, so I used a once inch circle punch for the little hole that the top of the bag goes through.
For the little frame around the hole in the front was simply from some scraps of orange card stock cut with the Sizzix dies and glued on.
My Cricut came in handy for cutting some small leaves. To save time, I cut these out of white card stock and then colored them quickly with my Spectrum Noir Markers and put three leaves in a cluster on each bag.
My cello bags were pretty long, so I clipped the top with a scissors and tied them up with pieces of twine from my stash.
I think these turned out super cute and it won’t take long for me to make the rest that I need for this weekend. This is one I’ll have to remember for other seasons of the year.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’ll spend some time this week creating something special for your home and family!
