At the She Loves Color event a few weeks ago we made the cutest and easiest little treat holders. My mind immediately began spinning with ideas and I decided that it would be really cute to make little bats using the same concept. At the event we put m&ms in the containers, but for Luc’s preschool we are asked to bring non-food treats, so I bought some bubbles, spider rings, Halloween stickers and tattoos to put inside. Luc helped me fill the bats and attach their googly eyes. Didn’t they turn out so cute?! Luc loves them and keeps asking when he gets to take them to school so he can give them to all his friends. 🙂
To make these you will need the following:
- Black Construction Paper
- Paper Trimmer
- Double-sided Tape (I tried 3 different tapes before having success with Tombow XTreme Permanent Adhesive)
- White Construction Paper
- Craft eyes (we bought the ones with adhesive on them already, but any will work)
- Star Punch (Optional, you could also just free hand the fangs, but this is a nice little shortcut)
- Bat wing template
- Download, print and cut bat wing template.
- Trace bat wings onto black construction paper and cut out.
- Use a star punch and white construction paper to make fangs (each point of the star is a fang) or just cut the fangs yourself.
- Cut the construction paper into 4.25″x5.5″ rectangles.
- Add tape to one short side and both long sides of paper.
- Roll over and tape together forming a tube.
- Pinch the bottom with the seam in the middle.
- Fill with candy or small treats
- Pinch the top closed in the opposite direction (the seam will be on one side of the crease)
- Tape the wings to the back overlapping slightly over the seam.
- Add googly eyes and fangs.
I hope you enjoy these fun little treat bags.
