Pencil Dot Art treat bags

I have one more halloween treat packaging idea 
to share with you.

It's quick, easy and fun-approved by the kids. 

Pencil Dot Art

Here's what you'll need:

1. paper bags (fun size)
2. ink pads
3. new pencils with erasers
4. kids

pencil dot art supplies:
bags, ink pads, pencils with erasers!

This is NOT a messy project unless you have very messy kids, then you'll want to protect your work area.

Orderly or random stamping, your choice!

While the kids were busy stamping, I created some tags for the bags.

Tag supplies:
Spellbinders label die, Memento ink,
Ranger embossing powder, CM circle punches,
Stampin'Up background stamp and
Joy's Life Halloween Puns stamp set.

Stop by the Joy's Life design team blog to see more
Halloween bag ideas all this week!

Quick, easy & kid friendly crafting!

Do you have ideas for quick kid-friendly crafts?
I would love to hear about them.

  1. Maria, these are fabulous and fun! TFS for such a great idea!

  5. Maria, I had to stop back over and tell you I used your idea with my nursing home residents this morning. We're working on treat bags for our 4th grade pen pals. It's working brilliantly, thanks to you! Thanks for joining us at Creative Inspirations Paint Challenges. Julie, CIP DT member

  6. This would be cute for decorating Christmas bags/paper, too.


Thank you for commenting, I enjoy hearing from you!
