How to Make Mini Halloween Treat Bags
Make cute little treat bags for Halloween. You can cut all the pieces and have the kids decorate the bags as part of a class party. Or how about making the bags ahead of time and fill them up to surprise neighbors with mini boo bags. I’m including two free SVG files for this project. Feel free to combine them with other designs I’ve shared. You can also use this design to make Halloween luminaries. Just fill the “bags” with a mini, battery operated light instead of candy.

- Orange and Black paper or cardstock
- Black Vinyl (I used chalkboard vinyl because that’s what I had on-hand.)
- Vellum or other translucent white paper (parchment or wax paper mix work too)
- Download the cut files (skull and treat bag) and upload to Cricut Design Space
- Lay out the design as shown in the screenshot below. Make sure the top of the bag is properly set with the images (I had to make this project twice as I first created the entire bag upside down – oops!).
- I used the Contour tool to create separate pieces of the skull to use. I used just the skull outline to slice out of the bag. Then I used just the skull face with vinyl as a sticker to place on the vellum. I also created a rectangle for the vellum on the inside of the bag. You can easily cut this rectangle by hand, I just find it easier to size in Design Space.
- Make sure to adjust the different layers for the appropriate action. The bag has a layer of score lines you need to set to “score” before sending the project to the mat” Don’t forget to attach the score lines and the cut shape of the bag together.
- Follow on-screen instructions to cut the different pieces.
- Assemble the bags. First fold along all the score lines. Then glue the vellum in place on the inside of the bag. Then apply the skull face. Finally, glue the bag side flap and bottom flaps to create the bag.
- You can leave the bag as is to use as an open-top luminary or gently crease the top half of either side to allow the bag to seal shut.
