Halloween Treat Bag

I took a bag from Michaels and some flocked heat transfer vinyl to create a new Halloween treat bag for Wynn. Hopefully we will get to do some trick or treating this year.  Wynn is really excited about it, and keeps asking for her costume already. That's probably because I've already put up Halloween decorations.

I picked up the bag from Michaels for a $1. They had several different colors in stock, and I think they would make great gift bags too.
I cut out this cute little witch from the Silhouette studio images, and then ironed it on the bag. It does take a lot longer than the 60 seconds or so that it says to iron it on the packaging. It always seems to take me several minutes for heat transfer vinyl to stick.  I do like the flocked heat transfer material because it is quite a bit easier to work with.
I also added a little strip of ribbon on the side. Wynn said the bag needed some spiders on it, and so we grabbed a roll of that at Michaels too.

Wynn really likes the bag, and has already asked on a few occasions if I could fill it with candy for her to practice trick or treating. Smart girl! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That witch silhouette is so cute :) My daughter has always been excited about dressing up for Halloween, this year is no exception, she already knows what her custom is going to be! On the contrary, my son doesn't even care about it :)
    Have a great week, Megan!

  2. This turned out so good!! Love the witch, think I need to visit the Silhouette store and make a purchase! Can I ask what you used to cut the witch out of? I am very new at using my Silhouette and have only worked with cardstock and vinyl.


    1. Not a problem! I used the Flocked Heat Transfer vinyl. :)

  3. She is a smart girl! And your bag is cute, cute, cute!

  4. Practice trick or treating, huh? She is going to do really well when it comes to the real deal. What an adorable little bag. Love the embellishments you added. And, I can't wait to see what Wynn will be for Halloween.

  5. Bahaha, she is a genius! Poor kid has a bit of a wait but what a cute little bag

  6. Super-cute!! (I think you need to make two more teeny-tiny ones, though!)
    P.S. Did you get my email about the Silhouette Designer position?
