Easy Fall Treat Bag Tutorial
Show your thanks and gratitude in November with easy Fall treat bags that can be shared with friends & neighbors.
Hello, friends! I hope fall is treating you well! The weather at our house has just been beautiful the last couple of weeks. My kids have had so much fun playing in the fall leaves too! In fact, since the weather has been so pleasant, we decided to create some fall inspired treat sacks for delivering a little something sweet to our neighbors. They are super cute, and super easy to make! All you need is just a few supplies.
To make your own fall goodie bags, you need:
- Imaginisce Give Thanks patterned paper
- Orange twine
- Treat sacks
- Paper trimmer
- Tape runner
- Hole punch
Let's get started!
Next, cut wraps for your paper sacks measuring 4"x10". I like to mix up the patterned paper I use, but you can use the same paper for all of them if that is your preference. If you are making these for a party, use the colors that coordinate with whatever else you are making. If they are just for fun neighbor gifts like we made, use whatever paper you feel inspired to use.
You will want to trim a large and small paper wrap for each of your treat sacks. When you are done trimming, just adhere the paper to each sack with your tape runner.
I always adhere my paper wraps on the front first, then wrap them around the back and adhere them together. Start with the larger 4"x10" paper, then wrap the 1/2" x 10" strip on the top. Treat sacks can vary in size, so just trim any excess with your scissors.
After covering your treat sacks, cut additional paper strips measuring 3/4" and 3". With the 3" paper, create a 3"x5" paper tag. Punch a hole, and add a bow with twine to the top.
With your 3/4" strips, create one or two paper strips, and staple them to the top of the tag. I used paper pieces that had some fun fall inspired writing, but fall patterned paper would look great too!
Adhere your tag to the front of your treat sack using your tape runner. I like to slightly angle mine, but have fun with each treat sack and be creative!
When you are all done, your treat sacks are ready to fill! We picked some of our favorite fall colored candy, but popcorn or cookies would also be fun!
My kids love helping me craft, but let's be honest. The candy is always the funnest part!
We had so much fun delivering these goodie bags to neighbors, I think I will make another set for Thanksgiving. Wouldn't these be so fun with napkins and silverware inside them at your Thanksgiving table?? Yup, totally going to do it. They are so easy to make, I think they will be a big hit!
Wishing you fabulous fall festivities, and hoping you too get a chance to share some of your creative talents with neighbors and friends. :)
