Don't be afraid to try different things with your Halloween treat bags: in this sample, we used just one simple stamp, drew a dotted line for the spider's web, trimmed the top of the bag with fancy-edged scissors, folded over the top and added a little bow. We liked the simplicity of this treat bag - easy enough for kids or the "creatively-challenged"!!
Ok, just to show you that you don't have to be "Martha" to make a really terrific looking Halloween treat bag, this sample was done by a guy, my dearest and beloved! He came up with the design himself, using stamps from two different sets to create his version of Frankenstein - not bad, eh?
These two samples we did using the repetition of a single stamp - changing the ink color and ribbons, gives the Halloween treat bags a similar and co-ordinating feel.
You don't have to limit yourself to just treat bags, why not try making Halloween treat boxes?! If you're feeling generous with your Halloween baking, decorate a gift box or bakery box to put the goodies in.
Hope this inspires some of you to try your hand at making your own Halloween treat bag and boxes this year!
