Back-to-school season is right around the corner, so I’ve started thinking about what we need to do to get ready. I really like making little lunch notes, so this lunch note treat bag is a must have. We don’t always have the time to do all those fun back-to-school diy crafts and activities. We do have time to write a happy note and share treats in lunches. So today I’m sharing a quick printable craft you can use all year long! Make this cute treat bag, fill it with something yummy and surprise your littles with love from you.
You can make special little cookies with messages (look at my Royal Icing and cookie article to help you with ideas) and then slip that treat into your new treat bag, voila! Little bits of sweet treats… that’s so much better than a virtual hug!
Make a Lunch Note Treat Bag
You can fill these treat bags with any kind of goodie, even fill it with more little love notes. You can put this bag together in under 5 minutes, just print, cut and glue! The set includes a colored version as well as a black and white layout so you can print on your own colored paper or color it in like a coloring page if you’d like.
Materials you need
- Printable Lunch note treat bag – see below
To Assemble your lunch note treat bag
- Print out the printable treat bag.
- Cut out the bag.
- Fold in sides, bottom and top.
- Glue the sides together at the middle. Glue the bottom flap in place.
- Fill your bag and seal with the star or heart art cut-out (like a sticker!)
You can also spend more time and add glitter, your own decorations or more little note. Have fun with this project! If you have more time, print out the bag template onto an iron-on fabric transfer and then stitch up a fabric bag that can be reused!
