I’ve been having a lot of fun making Halloween treat packaging lately, and this is just my first project in what’s turning out to be a whole series of Halloween packaging projects. These bags are a little big larger than your typical treat bags, so they’ll fit larger items or a bunch of different treats.
In this video, I’ll also show you how to make custom stamps using fun foam (it’s easy – promise!) and the printable Halloween words file that I’ve linked to below. And we’ll work a little magic with silver metallic embossing powder to give the bags a bit of pizzazz. I never get tired of heat embossing.
Tip: If, after you’ve embossed your bags, you’re left with a few bare areas (no ink or embossing powder), then you can use an embossing marker/pen to color over the bare spots and go through the embossing process again. This should take care of those bare areas.
