Wicked Cute Treat Bags

I’m so excited to be here today to participate in the Monster Craft Bash! I’ve seen some wonderfully fun projects and recipes so far! Ready to see what I have for you? 

I’m going to share with you how to make these darling little treat bags! They make a great gift for teachers, a great party favor for a Halloween party or handout on Halloween night {if you really love your trick-or-treaters}.


I started with a sheet of 12×12 Halloween scrapbook paper. I chose three pieces of cardstock to match.
Next I cut three different size circles for layering. You can do this with a cutting machine, such as a Silhouette SD, with a die cut machine or just regular punches. If you do not have access to any of these products, you can certainly trace different sized circles and cut them out with regular and decorative scrapbook scissors. The point is to have different sizes and possibly different shapes.


I purchased this adorable “Wicked Cool” stamp set from Stampin’ Up! You can find a variety of Halloween stamps in your local craft store or, if you’re not a stamper, you can just print an image off of your computer.
 Here is how I created the stamped center piece. . .
I started with the web, applying a light coat of ink and only stamping 3/4 of the actual stamp on my circle. Next I used “have a WICKED halloween” stamp, this time applying more ink so it would stand out. Then I brushed my circle lightly across the ink pad to give it a distressed look. Finally I embellished it with a small rhinestone in the center of the web.
I used regular scrapbook adhesive to attache the bottom circles and used a dimensional to attach the top circle. The dimensional raises this layer and adds a little something extra to any paper craft.


Next I cut a 1 1/2-inch strip of the scrapbook paper.


I used my scoring tool to create the pinwheel to go behind the scalloped circle. I just bought this new toy and I love it! You can find them in the scrapbooking section at the craft store. You certainly could create the accordion fold without, but a scoring tool makes it much easier.


I attached the two ends with glue dots. . .


and hot-glued the pinwheel behind the layered piece made earlier. I used hot glue because the pinwheels seem to have a mind of their own and tend to be a little difficult. Hot glue puts them in their place.



I filled the cellophane bag {which I also got from Stampin’ Up} with candy corn.
Then I folded two coordinating ribbons and stapled them to the top of the cellophane bag.
Finally, I hot-glued the ribbon and bag to the back of the pinwheel.



A perfect and cute little Halloween treat!
Happy Halloween y’all! I hope you’ll stop by my blog, Scissors & Spatulas, and do some browsing!
