Halloween Treat Bags

Materials

  • 12″ x 6″ Piece of Patterned Paper
  • 1″ x 6″ Piece of Patterned Paper
  • Adhesive Tape
  • Scoring Tool
  • Score Board

Instructions

  1. Take your 12″ x 6″ piece of patterned paper and score it at 5 1/4″ and 6 3/4″ on the long side of the paper. I am using Martha Stewart‘s patterned paper which is a perfect weight for this project. On the short side of your patterned paper, score at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″, and 5 1/2″. Cut and remove the areas that are shaded. Use this diagram as a guide.

Just stamp a brown paper bag with a cool pattern or crumple it for an eerie feel. Or for the handle, you can use scraps of ribbon if you have some laying around.
