Halloween Treat Bags with the DIY Party Board

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a quick and easy way to use your DIY Party Board to make Treat Bags for your Halloween parties.

The DIY Party Board is all you need to make your party decorations a success. With it you can make party hats, cupcake wrappers, party horns and of course treat bags.

To make the treat tags cut your paper following the board instructions. I am using Pebbles’ Midnight Haunting collection.

Wrap the papers and secure the treat bags with your hot glue gun. Fill them with candies and close them.

To make the embellishments I used my Fringe and Score Board and made some paper rosettes.

I also used my Ribbon Cutter to seal the edge of my ribbons. No more fraying, yay!

The treat bag is quite big and you can put lots of candies inside. These treat bags would be perfect to give to coworkers or maybe as favors for your Halloween party.

Halloween Treat Bags with the Goodie Bag Guide

Hello there, We R fans, Laura here today. I love making treat bags for all the holidays. Sometimes I use them for little gifts, other times I use them to package things up for the kids in my children’s classes, and sometimes they are simply for my own kids to give them a special little treat.

Halloween Treat Bags with the Goodie Bag Guide by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The Goodie Bag Guide is the perfect tool to quickly make customized treat bags for any holiday. Today, I am sharing how to make these cute Halloween treat bags. The base of each bag is the adorable glassine Halloween paper.

One of my favorite features of the Goodie Bag Guide is you don’t need a lot of extra tools to create almost any size bag. You use the guide to trim your paper to size. Then, using the correct pieces of the guide, you trim the top and bottom of the bag.

Lastly, use the flat edge to score and fold your bag. Assemble each bag using adhesive.

Then, the fun part begins of embellishing the bags. For the first one, I create a flag shape using the Banner Punch Board and some white and black cardstock.

I wanted to make a spider to go with the web paper. I used letters and symbols from my Thickers pack to create a fun little spider to go on the white tag.

I attached everything to the front of the bag and wrapped it with baker’s twine.

For the candy paper bag, I used purple cardstock and striped acetone paper to create a wrap around the bag. I attached a cute orange ribbon bow to the front of the wrap.

The last bag had the cute pumpkin paper as the base for the bag. The pumpkin paper was fun on it’s own, but I wanted a little something extra. So, I cut out a flag shape from orange paper and a dotted acetate sheet. I attached them to the bag and wrapped up the whole thing with twine.

I think the bags are so cute. They can be filled with candy, little trinkets, or even a home baked treat. The great thing about the glassine papers is that they can be used to hold food without making a mess.

Easter Treat Bags

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today to give you some Easter inspiration with three different cute little treat bags! I used the incredible DIY Party Board and the 1-2-3 Punch Board to make them, with scrapbook papers and  a glitter acetate paper too.

Easter Treat Bags by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

For the first triangle shaped treat bag, I used the Trim & Score Board to get a 9×9 inch paper square. Then I followed the instructions on the DIY Party Board and in order to make a treat pouch I used the marks A11. So easy and so fun!  Then I used a piece of the FUSEables yellow decorative tape along with a flower diecut and a resin rose to embellish the pouch.

Still with the DIY Party Board, I made a tiny party hat using the marks C7 and C1. How cute is this mini cone that will be filled up with yummy chocolate !  And here is a another tip for you : use a waterfall sleeve to hold the chocolate eggs, tie a knot and flip it before putting it in the cone ! That way, the candies won’t fall off the bags!

For the last treat package, I made a little gift box thanks to the amazing 1-2-3 Punch Board and to get more transparency (because those little eggs are so colorful to hide them) I made it with a gorgeous glitter acetate paper ! Then I  made a cute tag with the DIY Party Punch Tag and made a hole on a little pink label with my Crop-A-Dile.

Gift Bags with the Crop-A-Dile

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here today using a tool that was one of the first tools in my paper crafting stash; the Crop-A-Dile! That fantastic hole punch and eyelet setting tool. The one that can punch through just about any material. Heavy duty and beloved in my work space. When you think of the Crop-A-Dile, gift wrap isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But, this wonderful tool helps make gift wrapping a breeze! It helps add a finishing touch to a specially wrapped gift.

DIY Gift Bags with the Crop-A-Dile by Kimberly Crawford

I began by creating three gift bags using Glassine Papers and the Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide. The paper is food safe, making this perfect for cookies, brownies, or my favorite–homemade caramel popcorn. These small bags also could hold gift cards, earrings, necklaces, and more!


After adding a few papers from the Hazelwood Collection to my bags, I folded a small paper doily over the top. Using my Crop-A-Dile, I punched two small holes side-by-side. About ¾” apart from each other. The Crop-A-Dile has two different sizes for holes.

DIY Gift Bags with the Crop-A-Dile by Kimberly Crawford

Due to my smaller width ribbon, I chose the smaller. The Crop-A-Dile punched through all the layers easily. The other great feature of this tool is the small “teeth” that can be seen on the side of the tool. Those teeth help you line up each punch in the same spot. Simply count the teeth on the first punch placement and repeat.

DIY Gift Bags with the Crop-A-Dile by Kimberly Crawford

On these first two bags, I pushed the ribbon through the holes from the back to the front. One end of the ribbon in each hole. I pulled the ribbon through, made both sides even, and tied a bow.

I never learned to tie my shoes “properly,” which is a story for another time. However, it has served me well when it comes to tying bows in paper crafting. After tying the start of a square knot, I create two loops. I then cross the loops, tucking one underneath the other. By doing this, both ends of the bow can easily be adjusted for loop size!

For this bag, I closed it with ribbon again, but used a different technique. This time, the ribbon was fed through the front of the bag. One end of the ribbon through each opening. Then, crossing the ribbon in the back, the ends were fed back through to the front.


After pulling each end of the ribbon tight, it creates this closure. I love the look with the checked ribbon!

Each of the bags was decorated with more papers and fussy-cut images from the Hazelwood Collection. Oh, how I am infatuated with those butterflies!

Who knew that a versatile tool like the Crop-A-Dile could create such beautiful gift bags?!

Guest Designer: Gina Lideros

Hello, and happy Friday friends! Today we’re lucky to have guest designer Gina Lideros with us. Get to know a little more about her, and then scroll down to check out the lovely Christmas Goodie Bags she made with our Scallop Goodie Bag Guide and Christmas Glassine Papers.

I started scrapbooking back in 1996 when supplies were limited. Back then it was mostly stickers, decorative scissors and colored cardstock. It has been so fun to watch this industry change and grow over the years and grow with it. I am passionate about scrapbooking and photography and I love sharing it with others. I have been fortunate enough to study photography and work with Canon as a Special Projects Representative to train store employees in digital photography. I currently enjoying being on a few design teams while I share my love for scrapbooking and photography with others.
Favorite We R product:   I love the original crop-a-dile tool.  It is always a favorite go-to and must need in my tool supplies.  I’ve had my crop-a-dile for over 5 years and it is still going strong!
Favorite scrapbooking/papercraft tip:  My favorite scrapbooking/papercrafting tip is to keep your supplies organized.  This way they are always easy to find and access for that last minute
Christmas Goodie Bags
Hello everyone!  Gina Lideros here, and I am so excited to be the guest designer this month.  I was invited to create a couple of treat bags using the Scalloped Oh Goodie Bag Guide tool as well as the glassine papers and accessories.
The Oh Goodie Collection has everything that you need to make easy treat bags.  I used the scalloped tool guide along with the Oh Goodie Christmas themed glassine papers to make holiday treat bags for family and friends.
The tool cuts the glassine paper so easily, the possibilities are endless.  After using the tool on the tops and bottoms of my bag I then folded the sides over and used my Sticky Thumb adhesive roller to glue the sides shut.
I filled my treat bags with candy, confetti and gift cards for loved ones.
I just love how these treat bags came out.  So festive and much more personable then just gifting a gift card.  Have you tried making your own treat bags for friends and family?

Christmas Cookie Boxes & Recipe

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today bringing you a fun Cookie Box with a hidden message inside.


I have always loved to bake. In fact, before scrapbooking, I spent most of my free time cross stitching and baking.  Cookies are one of my favorite things to make (and EAT) during the holidays, so I always prepare a batch or two of simple sugar cookies. I think they are delicious and you can decorate them with kids–it’s a super fun activity! (I have copied my recipe at the end of this post)

A small box of homemade cookies it is a wonderful gift for friends, neighbors or for someone you want to thank for what he or she has done for you during the year.  Make your box with your 123 Punch Board and some pretty patterned paper. I am using the Holly Jolly line by our sister brand at Pebbles Inc. The boxes are very easy to make. You don’t need to glue or cut anything, the punch board does everything for you!


To make the hidden message, use your Mini Alphabet Punch Board to spell your word or phrase. My message is going to be “Fa La La”


With an embroidery needle and some twine create your vertical message.


Attach the end of your twine to the bottom of your box with some washi tape.


Place your cookies inside your box and wrap them with a strip of corrugated cardstock


Close your boxes and decorate them with twine, ribbon or a bow made with the 1,2,3 Punch Board and some gold acetate from the Clearly Posh collection.


I placed my message on top of my cookies so when you open the box it is the first thing you see. I glued two “Enjoy” stickers together to lift the message easily.



You could spell the recipient’s name or another phrase and adapt the box to other holidays like Valentine’s or Thanksgiving.


And there you have it! Cute boxes in minutes with the help of a few We R tools. The 1,2,3 Punch Board is one of my favorites! What’s your favorite Punch Board?


Have a great day!

Preheat oven to 370 degrees F (180 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely and cover with icing.


Christmas Treat Bags & Recipe

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with handmade treat bags for giving a homemade sweet treat, plus scroll down for the recipe if you want to make some yourself! The Scallop Goodie Bag Guide, along with Glassine 12×12 Papers make quick and easy treat bags. I always say that making these projects is easy, but We R Memory Keeper’s tools really do make beautiful and thoughtful gift-giving simple!


I started with the snowflake glassine paper from the Holiday Classics pack along with the Scallop Goodie Bag Guide. Following the easy instructions included with the tool, my basic treat bags were done in minutes.


To begin, the food-safe glassine paper is torn along the guide, both at the top and bottom of the paper. This guide leaves a scallop finish to the edges. Then the straight edge is used to create the folds. Adhere the edges closed, and the bag is finished.


After making the treat bags, I decorated the fronts. On both bags strips of Chevron Washi Tape were added. On this bag chipboard heart stickers and a “xoxo” sticker was used. I love the gold shine from the stickers! So, festive!


On this bag, I spelled out “for you” with Thickers. A starburst closure and a gold bow finished things off.


Once my treat was put inside the bag, I closed the bag with a sticker. It’s a nice finishing touch.

Inside each of the bags is homemade caramel popcorn. It’s a special family treat that was always made to enjoy on Christmas Eve at my great-aunt’s house. As we waited for Santa to arrive, she would fill bowls full of popcorn. It’s a tradition and memory that brings a smile to my face every time. I have shared the recipe with you below. It’s a sweet treat meant for sharing!


What treats do you like to give to friends, loved ones, and neighbors during the holidays?

Halloween Treat Boxes

Happy Monday friends, and welcome to Trick-or-Treat Week! Actually, it’s more like just plain old Treat Week because our design team will be sharing creative ideas for packaging Halloween treats all week long. We’ve got some inspiring projects lined up, so enjoy!


Hey there, We R fans. It’s Aly here again sharing a set of Halloween Treat Boxes that I made using the Template Studio and some Designer Poster Board. October marks the start of the baking season at our house, and I’m always looking for a creative way to package homebaked goodies for our family and friends.


Combining the Template Studio with the new Oh Goodie Halloween Glassine Papers turned out to be the perfect solution! I lined my boxes with the adorably spooky, grease-proof, food-safe 12×12 papers, and my yummy cinnamon sugar bread was packaged safe and sound. Not to mention it looks pretty cute, too!


These papers are super versatile–they’re perfect for making goodie bags with the Goodie Bag Guide and the Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide, or you can use them as a liner for other treat packaging and containers. Awesome.


Making the treat boxes with the Template Studio is so convenient because I can select from a variety of sizes to create a box that fits the contents I’ll be packaging. You can watch a video tutorial for making boxes with the Template Studio on our YouTube channel HERE.


Once I finished making my boxes, I secured them with thin strips of cardstock to coordinate with the box colors. You could use ribbon or twine as well.


I found some cute Halloween designs and cut them out with my electronic cutting machine. I used my Fringe and Score Board to make the rosette for the above box.


To personalize my treat boxes I added labels and tags from the Typecast paper collection and typed sentiments directly onto them with my Typecast Typewriter.


I love how easy it is to add text to my projects with the typewriter, especially since I’m not so good and writing things by hand. And the typewriting looks so cool!


I hope you enjoyed some inspiration and my little crafting hack. Try using the Oh Goodie glassine bags to line your treat packaging. They’re easy to use and they look adorable too! Creative cheers!

Patriotic Goodie Bags

Hello and welcome to the We R Memory Keepers’ blog! I am Eva Pizarro and today I want to show you how to make some cute Patriotic Treat Bags using the Goodie Bag Guide.

Patriotic Treat Bags by Eva Pizarro 1

The Oh Goodie Collection has all you need to make easy and cute treat bags, from glassine paper to embellishments and even seals! Plus The Goodie Bag Guide can be used with other types of paper. You can see a tutorial on how to use this tool on this We R YouTube video by Aly.

I used the A, B and D inserts and started with an 8 inch paper. For my first treat bag I decided I wanted to use some red paper from the Flower Girl collection. To make it even more fun I cut a star window on my paper, I used a shape from the Clearly Posh Ephemera as my guide

The tool cuts patterned paper really easy, the possibilities are endless!  Next, I glued my treat bag with a strong adhesive like this glue gun from Bazzill. I also added a piece of Clearly Posh acetate to cover my star window.

To embellish my treat bag I used a sticker from the Flower Girl collection, a star from the Ephemera Pack of the Clearly Posh Collection, a vintage clothespin, and of course my favorite–a chocolate chip cookie!

I assembled everything and this is how it turned out!

For the next treat bag I used the Oh Goodie paper, the stars pattern was perfect for my theme and I love that my treat bag is grease proof, so no food stains! To decorate I used a die cut  from the Flower Girl collection; a vintage clothespin, starburst tag , and star clip from the Oh Goodie Collection; and some baker’s twine.

For my last treat bag I ran some cardstock through my Evolution Advanced using the Gemstone Next Level Embossing Folder to add some extra texture to the bag.

And I also made 5  mini banners with my Banner Punch Board. I used them to create a star by attaching them on top of a starburst tag.

I added a few more embellishments like a wood veneer from the Flower Girl collection and a vintage clothespin.

Add your triangles to the tag using some foam dots and finally layer the wood veneer on top.

My treat bags are ready and they are so cute! I think all my friends will want one now!
