Old Fashioned Paper Sack Treat Bags

Who doesn’t have brown paper sack lunch bags, laying around the house. We have a Gazillion of them. They are perfect for packing that quick snack or lunch, but they are even better to Craft with. Wouldn’t you agree?

I started out by trimming the top with my Scalloped Scissors. I found these great Valentines inspired Rub Off Transfers at Hobby Lobby.

Be sure to fold the top of your bag over, to insure proper placement of your transfers or any other embellishments.
