Halloween Treat Bags

I wanted to get a jump start on making some Halloween treats for some special people both young and old.  These bags will probably go to the older Trick or Treaters.

The bags were made with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die using the Happy Hauntings Designer Series Paper.  They are the perfect size to put a gift card or greeting card along with a candy bar or two.  That’s why the big kids will love them!

 Here they are individually so you can see a little more detail.                                                                                                                                                                         Watermarked Photo 3 (2015-09-29-1444)   Watermarked Photo 4 (2015-09-29-1445)    Watermarked Photo 2 (2015-09-29-1444)

The mini treat bag thinlit is really great to have for so many different occasions.  Just change the paper and the possibilities are limitless.  They are also a snap to put together.  With this project though, the adorable little tag is the show stealer.  The tags were made using a small bit of cardstock and some little snippets of the DSP.  I cut some of the images directly from the paper.

Using the Tags and Labels Framelits, I created the framed tag by choosing two sizes of framelits and layering them before cutting with the Big Shot.  I then used the larger framelit and cut it out of cardstock and DSP gluing these two pieces together.  I lined the back of the framed tag with dimensionsals before attaching to the tag to give it a raised shadowbox effect.  The sentiment on the first tag and the BOO is from the Happy Scenes stamp set and the bird and spooky eyes on the middle tag are from the Among the Branches stamp set.  The ghosts are cut from the Designer Series paper and the sentiment is cut out with the smallest of the Lots of Lables framelits.  There are really so many ways to create fun tags using either stamps or paper.  I really do not have many Halloween stamp sets so I thought my options would be pretty limited but by using the sets I have, which are generally Fall sets, I was able to come up with these.  Instead of gluing them to the bag, I used some small clothespins which will not damage either the bag or the tag.

I hope you have the opportunity to make a few of these for some special Trick or Treaters this year as they were a lot of fun to make!

Thanks for stopping in to see my project and please feel free to leave a comment or I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Have a wonderful day,




  1. These bags are really cute. What size is the bag once it is completely finished? I like the way you came up with ideas for the tags. You won’t have a hard time sharing these with treaters of any age!

    • Karen, the bags are made with SU Mini Treat Bag Die and the finished size is about 5″ x 3 3/4″. They are a perfect size to put a couple of snack size candy bars in.
