Don’t forget to follow along with my co-hosts for this series as well: 30 Minute Crafts and Me and My Inklings. This quick and easy pencil gift bag is perfect to give to teachers or students or even for teachers to give to students. However you choose to use this cute little treat bag, they will only take you minutes to put together.
Items needed to make your own pencil gift bag:
- Yellow and white striped bags (mine were sent free of charge from Baker’s Party Shop)

- Silver glitter tape
- Chalkboard labels

Fold the treat bag as shown in the image below.
Add a piece of silver glitter tape down the seam in the back.
Add pink glitter tape around the entire bag with the seam meeting in the back.
The front should be seamless.
Add an additional line of pink glitter tape as well as a line of silver. Then add on a chalkboard label to the front.
Write the message of your choice onto the label with the paint marker.
