Trick or Treat Bags

I still don't really feel like crafting, but yesterday I made up some "Trick or Treat" bags to give to the neighbouring children.  These are just for a select few of the children that live closest to me.  With the whole Covid situation, I doubt we will have many knocking on our door to "Trick or Treat".

I buy packs of ten kraft paper bags from Home Bargains.  I think their primary use is lunch bags, but they're handy to have for all sorts of things, so I used them as the base for the bags, stamping a few spooky images and making a hang tag.  I've made five in total.


  1. Just perfect for some Halloween treats, great stamps and a fantastic tag

  2. Quite clever, Sam! I have tons of bags similar to this with handles but advertised as gift bags over here in the U.S. They are thicker and rougher than the lunch sacks we buy at grocery store, which has thinner paper with a slight waxy polish to them. The ones I have are more like the paper sacks they used to bag our groceries in back in the day and so I've hoarded them to use in my art as pages for journals, LOL. XOX

    1. Thank you. It's good to use things in an alternative way x
