Posts Tagged ‘Halloween Goodie Bags’

It’s fun to make your own Halloween goodie bags for a party or for the kids in your neighborhood.  These are fun and easy to make!

Materials & Tools:

  • Cellophane Bags
  • Candy
  • Scrapbook papers
  • Stickers and/or Halloween stamps and ink
  • Scissors, glue and a stapler

Directions:

  1. Fill cellophane bag 2/3 full of candy.  Fold the bag opening over at least three times, ensuring excess air is out of the bag.  Staple the folded edge so bag is completely sealed.
  2. Cut the background decorative paper to make a card. (In the example to the right, the orange and white striped paper is the background).  The width should be the width of the sealed bag plus 1/2 inch.  The length should be the desired front height then doubled.
  3. Fold the background paper in half (to make a card).
  4. Decorate the front of “card” with stamped greetings and stickers.
  5. Staple the decorate card on the top of the cellophane bag, hiding the sealed edge of bag on both side.

Bag Tags

You can also make cute “bag tags” using the same materials.  Instead of stapling the decorative card to the top of the bag, tie the bag with ribbon and add a bag tag.

These tags are also great to tie on to a bottle of wine as a host/hostess gift for Halloween parties!
