Peppermint Stripe Treat Bags

What are your treat-making and treat sharing plans this holiday?  We’re making peppermint bark, and I think it will look great in these bags.

Cookies  are a great treat to share on holidays!  Dress up your packaging by adding some fun red and white candycane stripes to a plain old bag!  Everything becomes a little more special when it’s wrapped in a hand painted package, especially when the littlest of Santa’s elves is the painter!

You’ll need

  • Paper lunch bags
  • Red and white paint
  • 2 paintbrushes
  • Cute tape to seal up bags
  • Gift cards, so you remember who gets what!

This project is pretty straightforward, but let me offer some tips!  Set up several bags in a row, instead of focusing on one at a time.  It’s easier and faster to paint stripes when you assembly-line it!

 

We used a nice metallic white paint, that really added a little glimmer.

Two separate paintbrushes help colors stay separate.  Finish all the white, then come back through and do all the red.

Use a bit of cute washi tape to seal up the bag when it’s full of treats, and add a great gift tag.  Voila!  Presents!   What treat are you giving?

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
