Halloween Treat Bags-No Template Needed!

Hi friends!  Today we are going to make these sweet treat bags for Halloween! You get 2 bags from one sheet of standard cardstock (I am using the cheap stuff from Sams Club so whatever you have on hand is totally fine!) making these favor bags less expensive than store-bought treat bags.

If Halloween isn’t your cup of tea you can use the technique for making these bags for whatever occasion you like! You can change-up the dimensions of the box, all you need to remember is to keep the sides the same size,  and the front the same size as the back. You can save time by using thick patterned paper to match your occasion too! Watch the video to see how!

I hope you found this project useful! You can make a wider, thinner box to hold gift cards as well. Just make the score for the bottom flaps equal to the skinniest side so you don’t have to cut off excess and it will make your bag a bit taller to hide the card. Add ribbon and you have a bag you could even hang on the Christmas tree! There are so many options for this, I hope you give it a try! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
