When my kids were growing up, I was one of those moms who loved to tag along on school field trips and I always tried to show up for class parties. I would have loved these DIY printable happy halloween treat bags …and would have spent an entire evening happily cutting out toppers and tying little bows. If you’re like me, and those sweet days are behind you, these little bags can be used for many other things, including coworker treats or fun snacks for the grandkids.

Today I’m joining Kristen from Ella Claire and more than 20 other bloggers for a Halloween printables event. This group has endless talent and I promise you won’t be disappointed. More on that (and all the links) at the end of the post.

*These treat bag toppers have been slightly edited for 2019.

Assembly: Print and cut out the bag toppers. Fold each topper in half. Add your goodies to the bag and fold down the top. Place the folder topper over the folded bag top, being careful to line it up with the edges of the bag. Punch two holes in the topper/bag and tie it closed with twine. An alternate way to close the bags is to use a stapler.

Tips for Treat Bags

  • Don’t double fold the cellophane bag. It’s easier and smoother if there is just one fold. When you are placing the topper on the bag, it helps to use a small chip clip or paper clip until you get the holes punched or get it stapled.
  • When printing the toppers, if there is a print setting that says “fit to page” or something similar, check that box. By cutting just inside the black line, the topper should fit a four inch cellophane bag.
  • I used brown kraft paper but white paper would be very cute too. (Especially if you used orange and white twine (linked below) for the tie.)

  1. I think we are going to follow this design for my daughter’s workplace bake sale this year.
    Although our lemon bars are not a typical fall desert, it may pass as a fall item if we throw in a couple of candy corns in the packet! 🎃 Thanks for showing!

  2. Very fun and festive … This is a great idea for celebrating co-workers too! Your creativity is truly appreciated !
