DIY Stamped Halloween Treat Bags

Hey there Eighteen25 readers!  I'm Rebecca from The Crafted Sparrow, and I am beyond thrilled to be here today!  A huge thanks to the three of the sweetest blogging sisters around for having me.

Today I'm sharing these cute & simple DIY Stamped Halloween Treat Bags.  I love to put a personal touch on packaging whenever I get the chance, and Halloween is no exception.  A while back I had a sweet friend in Utah pick me up a gazillion of these 6 x 9" brown paper goodie bags for products I make.  Needless to say I use them for lots of things since I have so many.  They are actually perfect, they are pretty much a blank canvas for me to get creative with.  Here's what you will need for this project:

-  Brown Paper Bags {either flat kraft bags or lunch sacks will do}

-  DIY Foam Stamp as wide as your bag {go HERE for instructions on how to make one}

-  Americana Acrylic Paint {Ebony Black}

-  Foam Brush

-  Bakers Twine

-  White Cardstock Spider Webs {made using a Silhouette cutting machine}

-  Hole Punch

After you have used the tutorial for making a DIY Foam Stamp that I put above in the supply list and made your stamp, you will need to brush acrylic paint on all your striped foam pieces.  Then align it with your bag and press firmly, you won't get a super solid will usually be distressed looking like mine.  You can stamp both sides if you want, or just one side.  Totally up to you.

While your bags are drying get to your favorite cutting machine and cut out some super cute spiderwebs on white cardstock.  I used my Silhouette machine, my spiderwebs are 5.5" in diameter since my bag is 6" wide.  I also used my machine to cut some fun spooky letters out for the front of the bag.  I just used a good old fashioned glue stick to glue my "Boo" letters on my bag.

Then I just filled my bags with delicious Halloween goodies.  Fold over the top of your kraft bag, I left the back of my bag blank so there was a contrast when I folded it over.  Now add your spiderweb by folding it in half over the top of the bag.  Hole punch two holes in the center of your spiderweb, then add your cute bakers twine and tie a simple bow.  You can use ribbon too.

I hope you will stop by and check out some of my other past Halloween projects.
