Free Printable Easter Treat Bags

I’m excited to be teaming up with Kristen from Ella Claire today for another one of her beautiful, seasonal printable and vignette hops. Today’s is all about Free Easter Printables. I have to tell you that while this is technically  a printable and vignette tour, I’ve been doing more undecorating than decorating around my house lately. I literally think I’m on like bag 60 of junk that I’ve sent packing. So, rather than a traditional frameable print and decorate a new space while I’m trying to sort of pare it down, I decided to do something a little different than the traditional print and vignette I normally do: Printable Easter Treat Bags.

I thought these would be fun at an Easter table place setting, or fun for kids to fill with candy at an Easter party (I’m thinking vintage muffin tins with different candies), or just something to take home all of their loot from the Easter egg hunt. They also coordinate with the placemats I created for last year’s Easter table so it all just goes right together.

I just love that cute little vintage bunny. I have to tell you, that printing on paper bags was new territory for me, so I had to do a little research to figure out how to do it correctly. There were tutorials for taping the whole bag to a piece of paper and running them through the printer individually, and at that point, I almost just gave up and moved onto something different. Bless those with patience, because there is no way I would sit there and tape each individual bag to a piece of paper and run it through the printer–I have my limits. Tell me I’m not alone. Anyway, after some trial and error, here’s the easiest way I found. And bear with me, it seems long, it’s not. The gist is, fold the flap back, tape it down, print.  So here’s the full rundown. (And I COMPLETELY spaced taking some pics for a little visual for you, so I’ll try to get that updated ASAP, but here goes:)

-I printed these on regular sized lunch sacks. Just a regular package from the grocery store.

-When you pull the bag out of the package it looks like this. You want to print on this smooth side (the other side has a seam down the middle), but the flap is in the way, so you need to fold the flap back the other way and secure it with a small piece of tape. How-To-Print-On-Paper-Bags MyFabulessLife.com-My home printer prints on the side that’s facing you when you put it in, so for me, after folding the flap back, I placed the bag in the printer with the “non-seam” side forward, and the bottom of the bag down. Just like you see it in the photo above (except the flap is now folded back).

-Then slide the little paper guide over to the size of the bag.

-Then open the file (download link is below) in your Photo Viewer program. Select “Print” from the top, left. Then when the print dialog box comes up, make sure you select “Half Letter” under paper size. And make sure the “Fit Picture to Frame” box is UNCHECKED.Paper-Bag-Printing-Directions MyFabulessLife.com

-You’ll notice the graphic is upside down. My printer prints at the top of the paper first, so it was easier for me to set the graphic this way so that I could still load the flap part of the bag into the printer first and not jam up the printer when it tried to run that part through. Does that make sense? If your printer prints differently, you can use those little arrows that you see at the bottom center of the box, to rotate the photo the way that you need it.

It sound like a lot of steps to print a paper bag, but I promise you it’s so easy. Literally, fold, tape, print. PROMISE!!

After it was printed, I cut it down with some pinking shears and punched some holes to tie some ribbon through. And you know, as annoying as Easter grass can be, I swear it just makes everything cuter.

    I found you thru the Nina Hendrick blog. I tried saving the treat bag printable by right clicking but it saved with your water mark. I don’t see how else to save it. I would love to down load this for my grandkids for Easter. What am I doing wrong?

  2. DIANE GAGNON says

    This link doesn’t appear to be working. Could you send me the file, or let me know when fixed. Thank you!!

    These bags are so adorable! I’d love to print them, but the “DOWNLOAD FREE PRINTABLE EASTER TREAT BAGS HERE” link isn’t a hyperlink. How do I download?

  4. Judi Johnson says

    You have a sign that says download here to get the free treat bag printable. Yet when I touch here nothing highlights and nothing downloads. Am I doing something wrong? I really like this idea. Please help.
