Stamped Clear Treat Bags

Dress up these bags for a party, family gathering or holiday. You can use recycled bags from clear rubber stamps that you buy; and store your stamps in CD cases for easy access. The bags that I used are polypropylene header bags that seal on the bottom, they usually sell them in large quantities~so you could chip in with some friends if you wanted to keep some on hand. These bags come in all different sizes, depending on the type of "treats" you want to put inside them; you can also check your local craft store to see if they carry them or something similar.

Treats don't necessarily have to be candy, they can be items you pick up at the dollar store for party favors or a healthy snack. A combination of both is nice too.

Take your rubber stamp and stamp your image onto the clear bag using StazOn Jet Black or White. Use a type of ink that dries fast and is designed to stamp on plastic.

Measure the size of your bag and cut out a piece of card stock that is a bit longer. My bag measured 5" x 6" so I cut my card stock at 5" x 7-1/2". I scored at 1-1/2" along the 7-1/2" side. Fold down the clear header on the clear plastic bag and attach the card stock as shown. Staple on either side to hold it shut on the top.

Decorate your bag and fill with goodies. For thebag on the left, I cut a circle 5" round and then folded it in half over the top of the clear header bag.

Have fun with this project and include your kids as they will just love decorating and filling the bags. Great for Halloween treats, Fall Parties, Christmas goodies and birthday parties as it is that time of the year. From our Bigfoot & Pickle Face Creations clear rubber stamp collection I used the circus set stamps. I stamped the saying with our child safe/washable ink stamp pads in the color pink.

Happy stamping and come visit us at our website or storefront to purchase our products that are geared for kids crafts. All products are made in the U.S.A.
