Handlettered Holiday Treat Bags

Hi guys!  It’s Amy from My 3 Monsters again.  I am excited to share my Handlettered Holiday Gift Bags with y’all today.  Christmas will be here before we know it, so I wanted to share my absolute favorite way to package goodies and small gifts during the holiday season.  Brown paper bags are super affordable and you have complete freedom to customize them to your heart’s content!

I handlettered a few of my favorite holiday phrases and digitized them so they can be used in oodles of different ways this holiday season — I’ll be showing you two of my favorite ways to use them here.  I love printing directly onto brown paper bags, right from my home printer.  You get such a one-of-a-kind custom look and no one would ever guess how easy it is to do!

How to print on paper bags:

You will need:

1. Click “Print” and then go to “Printer Properties”.  

2. All printers are a little different, but make sure you flip the design 180 degrees so that it will print in the right spot on your bag and be right side up. For me it is under Page Layout.  Once you have checked the box, click OK.

3. Insert bag into printer as shown below:

I found it helpful to make sure the crease on the bottom of the bag was really sharp so that the printer would pull it in without a problem.

4.  Click Print and watch the magic happen!

Cut the top of the bags into a cute scalloped design and use them as popcorn bags for your holiday movie nights or family get-togethers.   You could also use them to package treats for your neighbors like this Candy Cane popcorn I made last year.  Or, imagine how excited your kiddos would be to get their school lunch in a fun “Get your jingle on” bag in December!  If printing directly on the bags is a little intimidating {or if your printer doesn’t want to cooperate!} here’s another option:

Create these bag toppers by printing the designs onto plain white {or colored} printer paper.  Cut them out and attach to the bags with a stapler, cute washi tape, or ribbon as shown above.  These would be perfect for packaging up cookies for your children’s teachers, treats for your neighbors, or for wrapping small, oddly shaped gifts to put under your tree.  Download the hand-lettered holiday phrases here.

  1. Hi Kelli & Kristi. These holiday bags are super cute! Such a fun and creative homemade holiday project. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Dishing It & Digging It & congratulations on being featured this week! Happy Holidays ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You are genius, great way to give gifts without hassle of all that gift wrap, ribbon and tape. It’s all I can do to get gifts ready let alone the wrapping after many years of being up half the night wrapping for 4 kids then for grown kids, mates and their kids, phew. As it is have to get so many gifts ready to mail in time as two older kids live in San Diego and we live in CO. Then there’s friends in other places.
    Not that our dearest kids weren’t worth it and then some, just getting older and need some rest. Holidays are so full of much activity.
    This is such wonderful and helpful way to “wrap” gifts, sure appreciate you sharing this.
    Don’t know whose handsome kids those are in the greeting but they look like great kids, enjoy them. Have wonderful happy holidays

  3. Such a fun and creative holiday project. Thank you for linking up at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I’m delighted to be featuring this post at tonight’s party.

  4. I like to keep on hand a stash of cotton drawstring bags just for these types of gifts. You can even get food-safe ones that work well with popcorn or homemade treats. Thanks for sharing, I especially love the scalloped edge on your paper bags.

  5. Your holiday bags are super cute. I love to pack my gifts in burlap! It gives that rustic charm that goes so well with Christmas. I of course am biased!

  6. You, my dear are a genius! It never occurred to me to print bags from my computer. These are very cute and I look forward to trying this. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story link party and have a great weekend.

  7. This is such a great idea!! I used mason jars last year but I love the rustic look of the paper bags with the hand lettering! โ™ฅ Never considered printing directly on the bag– you’re so clever! I hope my hp will cooperate!!!

  8. I just saw something similar in the store and guessed it probably would be easy to do at home. Thanks for showing how to print to the bag!!! Hopped over from “party in your pjs”.
