Trick or Treater Squidgies Halloween Treat Bags | Stamping Bella

Today I'm sharing another Stamping Bella Tutorial. These one Sheet Halloween Treat Bags are quick and easy to make and can be adapted for any occasion. 

The Squidgies stamps I've used on these are the perfect size for this bag. 
The papers are a mix of hoarded stash of  My Mind's Eye Mischievous collection, and Carta Bella's All Hallows Eve collection. 

Halloween themed paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Adhesive and foam tape

How to:
Stamp the images onto white card and colour using your preferred medium. 

Fussy cut each of the images and set aside for now.

Cut one piece of paper measuring 6" x 12" for each bag. Score on the 6" side at 1.5" and 4.5"

On the 12" side, score at 3", 5", 9" and 11 5/8"

Fold and crease all the scorelines with a bone folder.

with the 11 5/8" scoreline at the top, fold in one side.

Bend the 3" scoreline outwards until it lines up with the edge. Crease the fold with a bone folder.

Repeat on the other side.

turn the paper so that the 11 7/8" scoreline is at the bottom and repeat the steps above to create the other side of the bag base.

Fold down the corners on each side, on the end of the 3" section. Crease well.

Open the corners up and fold them inwards. Crease again.

Open up the paper and apply glue across the top as shown below.

Fold  the sides in and stick down.

Fold down the 5/8" section.

Cut a piece of card approximately 1/2" x 2.75"

Lift the 5/8" section each side of the opening and apply some wet glue.

Slip the piece of card under the lip. Working quickly before the glue dries, fold the box up and slide the other end into the opening ensuring the 'shoulders' fit.

Open the box up again. There will be a little gap between the sides.

Cut a circle from black card and a smaller circle from paper, adhere them together.

Decorate the front of the circle, then adhere the image down using foam tape.

Apply adhesive/foam tape to the back of the circles to about 2/3rd of the way down and stick them to the front flap of the bag. Stamp the sentiment onto a strip of white card and adhere to the front using foam tape
