if you need a quick treat bag for your kids to hand out to teacher or friends give this idea a try.
a friend found a variation of this last year and it was too easy to pass up.
i gave my daughter a white piece of cardstock 5 3/4 x 3 1/4. i admit, i helped line up the letter stickers to spell her teachers name. but then i gave her free reign of Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens and some halloween stamps. allow your child to color the stamp with the brush side of the dual brush pens, then “hufff” on the stamp to re-wet the ink for stamping.
while she was stamping i was cutting the base. using a full sheet of 12×12 black cardstock i cut it in half, so i had (2) pieces of 6×12. i scored each one at the 3 1/2″ mark and folded it over.
when the white name plate was done i adhered it to the black base using Tombow Powerbond Adhesive Runner. then again, using the Powerbond I adhered a treat bag, UPSIDE DOWN so the opening is at the bottom of the card, under the name plate flap. i put Powerbond between the back of the base and the treat bag AND the top of the treat bag and the back of the name plate. i wanted to make sure when i stuffed the treat bag with candy it held good and tight!
now your treat bag is ready to be filled and delivered. grab some stamps, markers, Tombow Powerbond, clear treat bags, cardstock and maybe a few letter stickers and your little crafters will be busy putting together treat bags for everyone they can think of. have the candy or cookies ready!
