For now, read on for the step-by-step guide to make this super cute bat!
List of Supplies:
- Colored craft paper – black or grey or any colour of your choice
- White and pink coloured paper
- Craft glue
- Tape or Stapler
- Pencil – for tracing the template
Firstly, select a craft paper for the project and cut out a rectangular piece out of it. I chose grey and mine was 12.5-inch x 7 inch. By keeping the 0.5 inch intact; fold the 12 inch into half. Remember, you can choose any colour you’d like!
Secondly, apply glue along the 0.5 inch part. Fold and stick the glued part with the other open end of the folded rectangular paper.
Fold up 2 inches of the current paper from any one of the open ends. Do not fold the closed ends.
By keeping the paper on a flat surface, open the bottom of it from one side. This will create a triangular pattern on the side.
Similarly, open the other side of the bottom and flatten the paper neatly. Now it has 2 open sides, like flaps.
Hold any one of the open sides and fold half of it downwards, slightly overlapping the center line.
Similarly, hold the other open side and fold half of it upwards, overlapping the previous side’s fold. Apply glue along the overlapped part to secure the bottom of the bag. Notice the 2 squares formed on both sides of the bottom.
Create crease along the along the sides (left and right). Match the opposite corners of the squares on the sides of the bottom part to make perfect crease lines along the left and right. This will create crease lines on both the front and back side of the bag and a center line for each pair of creases.
Unfold the folds created for the crease and carefully tuck the center line inwards. The open end can be secured by using clear tape or glue or staplers, whichever you prefer. Then the bag is ready!
Trace the patterns from the template on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely. You can access the TEMPLATE and print it off.
Attach the wings on any one of the creases on the sides.
One by one attach the other details of the bat to complete the bag.
Allow the glue to dry.
Fill Those Bags!
Now that you’ve made these adorable bat treat bags, you’re ready to fill them. You can fill them up with candies of all sorts, mini chocolates, pens, erasers, even coupons or vouchers for bigger treats. However, you can get as creative as you’d like with these.
Once they’re filled, they’re ready to be passed out for your child’s class, your annual Halloween party, or to the neighbourhood kids!
