Treat Bag decorated with clear rubber stamps

This cute little treat bag is very simple to make and is great for any season or theme. Fill it with candy for Halloween, knick knacks for a birthday party or a gift card for that special event. It is 2" wide so lots of room for all sorts of goodies. This project is fun for the whole family and a very simple project to do with your children. Kids crafts are fun and educational for your children, especially when your are doing it with them.

The completed bag size is 3-1/2" x 2-3/4" x 2". Print the template below onto card stock. Right click and save it to your computer and open to print. It should fit on a 8-1/2" x 11" paper. You want to use card stock as it will give the bag some durability. If you have problems printing the template, email me and I and send it to you as a pdf file.
Cut out the template on the solid lines and score on the dotted lines. Once I cut out the image I used the decorative scissors on the top of the bag to give it a fancy look.

You will decorate the bag before you glue it together, as it is easier to do so when it is flat. I cut out 2 pieces of card stock sizes 2-1/2" x 3" to put on the front and back of the bag. You can also use a decorative paper to jazz up your bag. I stamped clear stamp image onto white card stock and colored it in. It is wise to use washable markers, crayons or pencils when working with children. Here I used from our Bigfoot & Pickle Face Creations Fun with Fish set SKU#FSH05 and our child safe/washable ink stamp pad in black.

Cut out your images and decorate your bag. This is the time to use your imagination. Put a nice saying on your bag to complete the look. I used foam tape to make my images stand out. You will want to do this so that when you thread the ribbon through the front of the bag it goes under your image and saying. Use double sided sticky tape or a glue stick to glue your bag together. Make sure that you fold in the side flap and then at the bottom the square flaps go on the inside. Cut a 15" piece of ribbon and tie it around your bag and knot at the top once you put your treat inside.

If you have any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to comment or email me.

Clear rubber stamping is fun, especially when you include your children. Many of your projects may look like a child did it, that makes it much more special to receive it as a gift. Happy Stamping!
