Craft Project – Halloween Gift Bags
Hello! It is getting close to fall and if you are like me, you are getting excited about Halloween. I don’t know about you but Halloween is my favorite holiday. I am already starting to plan for my up and coming Halloween party. I decided to make treat bags using our DEKedout Creatures of the Night Halloween Tag Set and Creatures of the Night Halloween Craft Papers.
First, I started by making small paper treat bags out of black card stock with my Gift Bag Punch Board. I got mine on Amazon and here is a link if you need to buy one: Gift Bag Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.
I measured the front of the gift bag and subtracted .25″ from the measurement on both the length and the width. I did not want my paper to stick out over the edge, plus I thought a small black border would look quite nice.
I printed out several sheets of the Creatures of the Night Halloween Craft Papers and then I trimmed them to my measured size.
Ta Dah! All trimmed and ready to apply. I used a glue stick to attach them to the fronts of the bags.
Next, I cut out a bunch of the tags from the Creatures of the Night Halloween Tag Set. This set gives you circles with creepy animals and bugs as well as Halloween sayings.
Cutting out Tags! Trick or Treat!
These ones say “Happy Halloween” and “Happy Haunting” and a bunch of other small ones.
To make the tags really stand out I punched out some black circles with my Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Dies, Lacey Circles punch. But if you don’t have a Sizzix cutting system you can find some cute black doilies and those will work out great (and save some time too!).
I wanted to make the rectangle tags really stand out so I also trimmed some black card stock and glued the tags to the front. I used foam glue dots to get the tags to pop off of the surface.
Four dots, one in each corner, that sucker is not gonna fall off during the party for sure!
All ready to start assembling. The papers are glued onto the bags. You can see that the paper is slightly smaller than the bag and there is a bit of a black border.
Stick the tags and the doily die cuts on with the foam dots.
Super spooky Halloween treat bags are all ready for the party!
