It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! I just looooooove Halloween and always look forward to starting my spooky crafting and decorating. These adorable treat bags are perfect for making “Boo bags” or party favors. The nested coffin dies from Maker’s Movement come in a variety of sizes, so you can make the bags as large or as small as you want to!

Coffin Treat Bags Supplies

The paper pack in Maker’s Movement new line is sooooo cute! The patterns are really fun (one sheet has tricks & treats, including toilet paper rolls…hahahahaha). I chose the spooky night paper with the eerie sky and the glowing moon to create my backdrop. I cut two large coffins and two of the smaller ones out of the paper pack.

Next I rolled a piece of white cardstock through my Xyron sticker maker and then die cut the skeleton out. Doing it this way makes the paper like a sticker! I peeled and assembled the dancing skeleton on the front of one coffin.

Next, I took the smaller coffins, for the sides, and scored them as pictured. This creates the tabs so you can assemble the bag. Use hot glue to assemble the bag.

I traced the open base onto a piece of the paper, adding a slight allowance on two sides. I scored and folded those to make tabs so I could glue the base on.

I rolled some of the fun shaker sprinkles through my sticker maker so I could add them to the scene. I think the eyes are hilarious and give the skelly so much character! The bats and stars add some fun dimension to the bag, too.

All that was left to do was punch a hole in each side and add a wired ribbon to make a handle. These will be really fun to fill with treats and hang on a neighbor’s door, leave on a co-workers desk, or delight kids with at a party. Have fun crafting and creating for Halloween!
