Halloween Week Day Two: Quick & Easy Treat Tags with Authentique Masquerade
Hello, Friends! Welcome to Halloween Week Day Two! Today we’re going to make quick & easy treat tags with Authentique Masquerade and G45 Large Black Tags. You’re going to love how simple it is to put these little beauties together!
How to Make a Halloween Treat Tag
- Begin by die cutting tag liners with the G45 Large Tag Die. You will need 2 liners per tag.
- If you do not have this die, you can just cut designer paper to measure 3 5/8″ x 8 1/4″. Round the corners with a punch.
- Cut 2 1/2″ from the bottom of the die cut. This will line the pocket flap.
- Place a G45 Large Black Tag on your scoring tool so that the rounded edge is on the left.
- Now score at 7″ and 7 1/2″.
- Fold along the score lines to form the base of a pocket.
- Adhere the tag liners to the tag base. Remember that the pocket flap will be folded up, so make sure you are lining the correct side of the pocket flap.
- Next, cut 2 pieces of 1 1/2″ wide black cardstock. You want the height to be slightly shorter than the pocket flap. Score each piece at 1/2″ and 1″. These will be the pocket sides. Simply adhere the outer flaps to the sides of the pocket.
TIP: You can make your own tag from heavy black cardstock. Cut the piece to measure 3 3/4″ x 9″. Cut the top corners and round the bottom with a corner rounding punch. Then score and fold as we did above.
- Once the tags have been lined and the pocket flap is secure, wrap the pocket with a piece of ribbon and tie a bow.
- Now you just need to add ribbons and decorate the tag.
- A full sized Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fits perfectly in the pocket. Dress it up with a little designer paper if you wish.
The Flip Side
Here’s a peek at the back side of the tag. Create a little note card from a 6 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scrap of black cardstock. Score it down the middle. Add a 3×4 image to the front. Place magnets inside to hold it shut. Then line with designer papers.
This gives you the perfect spot to add a spooky greeting. These are such fun to make that I had to do another one. Here’s a peek:
Now that you know how easy it is to make these cute treat tags, you can fill up a basket of them to give to friends, family and co-workers.
