Halloween Treat Bags (Using One Sheet of Paper and No Die!)

Halloween Treat Bags
 Do you need some last minute Halloween treat bags but don't have a die or "thinlet" to make them? I have the answer! All you need is a piece of printed paper 5-1/2 x 7-1/2 inches and a way to score your paper (on a trimmer or scoreboard). Use any Halloween themed papers you choose. I used an older Paper Studio Card Stack.See picture below for cutting instructions:
Score at 2-3/8 and 5-3/4 inches on long side, turn and score at 5 inches
Finished bag size is 3-3/8 x 5 inches. It's large enough to hold some treat size candy pieces or several snack size Hershey bars. Cut the paper as shown, trimming off the bottom two pieces on the sides, leaving a center flap. Round the corners of this flap. Fold the sides in, then the bottom up and adhere with a strong adhesive. I used a pinking shears to cut a small strip off the top of the bag for decoration. You could use any kind of decorative scissors or leave it straight. It's up to you! Decorate as you wish and you've only used ONE PIECE OF PAPER! I have used this over and over again for many occasions and wanted to share it with you!
