Coffin self-closing treat bag


This really cute little self-closing treat bag is such a quick and easy make.  It was inspired by Keren Hughes and adapted for the Happy Haunting Collection. It has a wide base and flat top so the folds and clever shape  make the bag close.  

It is made with a 6 x 6 1/2" paper.                                               

  • along the long side score down at 3 and 6               
  • turn and score 1 and 5 on shorter side
  • on back with ruler and scoring tool, join as diagram   
  • cut away hatched sections
  • gently fold and press on score lines
  • glue to make box
  • decorate with stamped sentiment
  • add sweets
