Halloween Treat Bags

Every holiday I make little treat bags to sell at the local consignment store. But since its Halloween, and I only get a handful of trick or treaters where I live, I will also pass these out to the little monsters and goblins that come to my door.

Because I'm pressed for time these days, I kept them very simple. Just plain white card stock using the Sizzix Top note die for the background. If you are looking for inexpensive baggies, JoAnn's sells them the cheapest I've ever found, and in many different sizes too.

I staple the white card stock to the baggie once its filled with chocolate, then wrap a ribbon around it to hide the staple.
I used a variety of Halloween/Thanksgiving images. This one is retired Stampin Up! 'Festive Four'. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
The pumpkin is a Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss die, the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

This turkey I found in a dollar bin at JoAnn's.

And this turkey and sentiment is also from Hero Arts.
I hope I have inspired you to make some treat bags for your own monsters and goblins who come knocking at your door this month. Have a great day! Amy


  1. Wow Amy, these are so cute! I'll bet you sell out of them too! I'd love to know what you charge for them. We have an upcoming craft festival, and they'd be fun to make and take! Great job!!!

  2. Oh just love the treat bags, some lucky kids are gonna get 'em! Liz x

  3. These are so cute! I just love that little turkey form the dollar bin, I think I better go hunting for that one. How sweet of your to give these out to the kids I bet they love them!

  4. Very cute Amy ! The kids will love getting those ! (and adults);o) Tracy

  5. Amy these are soooo cute!! What a great bunch of treat bags!

  6. I can see how you would sell these adorable bags at the consignment store but I can't imagine going through all that effort for trick-or-treaters.
