To embark on this crafty endeavor, you’ll need the free printable template, which you can find at the end of this post. Additionally, gather the following supplies:



  • Colored craft papers
  • Craft glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Select colored craft paper in black, brown, white, and pink for your bat treat bag craft. However, don’t hesitate to get creative with your choice of colors. You could make a pink bat, a red bat, or even a rainbow-colored bat if you’d like. For reference, I’ll be using a piece of paper that measures 6 inches by 9 inches to create my bag.



Step 1: Fold Your Paper

Fold your chosen paper in half lengthwise, leaving approximately one centimeter of extra paper at the top. This extra centimeter will be crucial for sealing your bag. Fold down the one-centimeter section over the top of the other end and glue them together securely, as illustrated in the image below.



Step 2: Create Bag Shape

Next, fold up approximately 2 inches of the paper from one of the open ends. 



Now, open the folded part from the bottom middle and carefully flatten the sides as neatly as possible, as shown below. This will give you two triangles on both sides. 



Step 3: Complete the Bottom

Fold the top open end of the flap halfway towards the inside.


Similarly, fold the bottom of the flap towards the inside, overlapping it with the previous part. Apply glue on these folded parts to securely seal the bottom of the paper bag.




Step 4: Make Creases

Match the two opposite corners of the squares on both sides of the bottom of the bag and create a crease on both sides, as shown in the photo.



Step 5: Add a Decorative Touch

Open the last folds and flatten the bag neatly. Now, use scissors to cut a curved border along the top side of the paper bag to give it a unique and appealing shape.




Step 6: Cut and Attach Templates

Cut out all the template pieces, including the bat wings, ears, fangs, and eyes from your colored craft papers.



Use glue to attach the wing patterns on both sides of the paper bag.



Attach the rest of the cutouts, including the ears, eyes, and fangs, to the paper bag using glue. This will complete your charming bat paper bag craft.



Step 7: Allow It to Dry

Finally, allow everything to dry thoroughly.
