I “fancied” my Halloween treat bags up with a touch of gold foil using the Minc machine.  A big thanks to American Crafts for sponsoring this post, as always opinions are 100% my own and I’m thrilled to work with a company that I believe in.

I have a great love for Halloween.  Not the scary gory stuff, the fun creative family-friendly stuff.  I adore decorating my home at Halloween and usually try to drop off treats to my friends and neighbors in honor of the holiday.

For the last few months I’ve been working with the new Minc Foil Machine from Heidi Swapp, you can see some of my previous projects HERE.

I thought for my project this month that I’d “fancy” up some simple lunch bags and turn them into cute goodie bags for Halloween.

The easiest way to make Halloween goodie bags

My initial idea was to print directly ON the lunch bags. Let me tell you that is NOT an easy feat. I’m quite tech-savvy and after an hour of trying to get Acrobat and my Printer to be “friends”, I just gave up and realized that this project is MUCH easier if the image is printed on cardstock first.

Also knowing that I was going to share this printable with all of you, I wanted to keep it as SIMPLE as possible.

I created the printable in 3 different sizes, 5×7, 4×6 & 3×4.  One of those sizes should fit on the treat bags that you are making.  Also, I think this would be tote adorbs as a sign on a buffet table at a Halloween party.

The tiny one seems just right for a nice piece of chocolate or two.

FYI: If you don’t have a foiling machine you can just print them in black and white and attach them to pre-printed Halloween Lunch Sacks.

Lunch Sacks

-Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Machine

-Gold or Rose Gold Foil

-Ribbon

-Black Cardstock

-Laser Printer if you want to add foil – or just take it to your local copy shop, inkjet printers don’t work with the foil – also a little PSA, laser printers are much less expensive to print than inkjets. The laser cartridges last longer and are less to replace than inkjet cartridges. If you mostly print in black and white you might want to think about it.

Then simply cut out and attach with double-stick tape.

Fold over the top of the lunch sack and punch two small holes.

Feed the ribbon through and tie.

  1. Oh, I wish your free printable was in gold. I could print it on a color laser printer. We’ll probably print in black on white card stock. It will still be cute! Thanks!

    1. It didn’t look good printed in gold ink.. kinda yucky. I think it would look cute glued to a colorful bag

  7. Hi! The lunch bags are adorable, and I was wondering if you offer (or will offer) a printable for the “BOO”. It’s in the pictures, but I couldn’t find it on your site.

  8. Hi! Everything you do is so cute. I love the autumn to do list. I would like to somehow print that onto a apron or a bag or even the back of a sweatshirt. I do not have a cricut. Is there any other way that you know of to do a transfer like this? Thank you, Carole

    1. You could try an iron on transfer. It won’t be as bright as a cricut but it might work. Just buy Ink Jet Iron ON Paper at a craft store.

  9. I’ve been trying to get the Good to the Last Bite printable. I enter the library with the password, find the printable, click on it and it takes me back to the page where it is first shown. So, I enter the library again with the password, find the printable and it takes me back again. I’m going in circles. I give up!

    1. Hi, I just checked it and it’s loading fine for me. Did you click on the blue DOWNLOAD box on the page?
