Hi and welcome! It’s week 2 for crafty Halloween festivities here and today I have some fun tags and bookmarks for goodie bags.
Each year I make a few goodies for my daughter to give to her friends and this year I’m putting them in brown paper bags and using Halloween tags and bookmarks to decorate them. I ordered some mini frosted bags as well for a different look.
Here is a close up on the tags and bookmarks… which I phrased “boo!-kmarks” for the holiday. 😉
To make the bookmarks, I cut out the bookmark shape in thick cardstock first, and then cut the bookmark shape in patterned paper as well and adhered it on top of the cardstock. I wanted to make sure it was nice and thick so it held up for a while. I typed up and printed out “Trick-or-treat Have a boo!!-kmark,” trimmed it and adhered it to black cardstock and then to the bookmark. Finally, I cut out a ghost shape and attached it to the bottom.
I made the tags in a very similar way. I first cut out the tag in thick cardstock and then in patterned paper and adhered them together. I typed up and printed out the Halloween sentiment, trimmed it out and attached it to cardstock. I attached it to the tag and finished it off with a Halloween sticker, and a cutout bat shape at the bottom.
I tied both the tag and the bookmark to the paper bags with Sew Easy orange floss twine after filling them with goodies. My little one really loved how they turned out and I hope her friends do too! This great little craft came from inspiration I got from the Papercraft Star web site.
Have fun continuing your Halloween celebrations and I will be back next Tuesday! Happy creating 🙂
