Halloween treat bags


  • Pencil
  • Small black paper bags (available at craft stores such as Michael’s)
  • Piece of card stock or thin cardboard for template
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Silver or white paint pen


  1. Trace around bag on card stock. Cut out shape.
  2. Draw a tombstone outline within template, leaving sides and bottom as they are while creating a decorative shape at top.
  3. Once you’ve drawn a design that pleases you, fold template in half vertically and cut out drawn shape. (This step ensures that your design is symmetrical.
  4. Place template on a bag and trace around it. Cut out tombstone shape.
  5. Using a ruler to center lettering and ensure that it is straight, write RIP and a guest’s name on bag. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each bag.
