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!
- 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?
