I managed to find color-coordinated candy at The Fresh Market. The sour taffy in raspberry and orange flavors looked perfect in the bags, and it tastes pretty good too! (Naturally, I sneaked a few during production.)
Halloween Goody Bag Instructions
1. Download the bag top artwork and/or the Halloween bat label using the bat buttons below the instructions. Save the art to your hard drive.
2. Print the art using good quality paper or card stock on the highest quality setting available on your printer. (I used glossy photo paper for the samples you see in the photos.)
3. Write a name on each bag top or tag, or write anything else you'd like, such as "Boo!" or "Happy Halloween!" Do this before you cut and attach the pieces to the bags, in case you make a mistake in your writing.
4a -- bags. Cut the width of the printed bag tops to fit the particular size bags you have. The template has been sized to fit treat bags up to 6" wide, but you can easily trim the printed bag top down to fit. Once trimmed, fold the tops in half, and then attach them to the candy-stuffed bags with a glue stick, tape or staples.
4b -- labels. Your best bet is to use a sharp pair of manicure scissors to cut the labels, being sure to include the tabs that allow them to be attached to the bags. Use a standard office hole-puncher to punch a hole in the tab. This will allow ribbon to be threaded through. To thread the ribbon, fold the ends of a piece of ribbon that's about 15 inches long and push them through from the back of the label to the front. Put the loop that makes over the top of the bag, tightening it and tying a bow. To make the bow sit correctly, use the bottom end of the ribbon to form the first loop of the bow.
Tip: These could also be used as place cards for an adult Halloween dinner party!
