Spooky Halloween Treat Bags Tutorial

These are the cutest Halloween treat bags ever that Creative Team member, Katie made! She used her Silhouette CAMEO to cut them out and they are the perfect little Halloween favor. Love how she snuck in some washi tape too. Enjoy! -Linda

Halloween Treat Bags

Halloween is such a fun holiday! It really draws out the creative side in most people. I love the clever costumes, fun decor and of course, treats! Treats are the best part. This Halloween, I am making Halloween treat bags for my coworkers. I found the best Silhouette cutting files and I love how they turned out!

Step 1: Use the Cameo to cut the pumpkin file out of orange cardstock. I chose to cut the stem out of green cardstock.

Step 2: Cut a small green strip and use scissors or a pencil to curl the end of the strip.

Step 3: Insert the stem and the curled strip into the slit at the top of the pumpkin. I used glue dots to secure the base and then covered both pieces with a bit of washi tape.

Step 4: Insert a bag of treats into the inside of the pumpkin. Use washi tape to secure the bag at the top of the fold, as shown in the photo.

Step 5: Fold the pumpkin up along the perforated lines and use washi tape to securely close the flap.

Voila! Isn’t it the cutest? Now, let’s do the next treat bag – the bat!halloween bat treat bag

Step 1: Cut out the bat file. Everything is cut out of black except the white teeth.

Step 2: Unlike the other treat bags, the closure flap is used as the bat’s mouth. Glue the mouth down to the front of the bag. (If you want, it is easier to go ahead and tape the treat bag inside the bat before you glue his mouth shut).

Step 3: Glue the wing cutout inside the bat, to the back panel. It will look like two wings sticking out.

Step 4: Embellish the bat – glue down googly eyes, the teeth go under the flap and the ears at the top of the flap. The cutting file just includes two triangles which I suppose you could use as the teeth and the ears. I just cut out the ear triangles from scrap paper.

I love the bat! So p. Let’s do Frankenstein next!

Step 1: Cut out the cutting file. I used green for the body, black for the hair and gray for the screws.

Step 2: Using glue dots, attach the black hair to the top of the front fold.

Step 3: Using washi tape, attach the screw cutout to the inside of the front flap, so it looks like two screws are sticking out.

Step 4: Embellish the little guy with googly eyes and drawn-on mouth and stitches.

Okay, Frankie is my favorite. Each time I made a bag, I thought it was my favorite until I made the next one. They are all so adorable!

    I LOVE these!!!! I am still on the hunt for how I am going to hand out Halloween candy this year. I dedicated an entire blog post to all the options out there. And although my boyfriend thinks I’m crazy for putting so much effort into these, I just can’t help it when I look at how cute your treat bags turned out!
