- Green Envelopes
- Black Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Black Marker
- Black Stamp Pad (optional)
- Glue Dots
- Candy and other fun goodies
Any size green envelopes really should work – mine measures 5 ¾’ x 4 ½ “.
Cut the flap off the envelope. and fold over the bottom of the envelope – about 1 inch.
Unfold the bottom and fold over both of the sides – about ¾”
Before turning the envelope into a bag you want to put Frankenstein’s face on because it will be more difficult to put the face on once the bag is made.
Turn the bag over so the folds are in the back. Take your piece of black cardstock and fold it in half length-wise.
Temporarily place it on the bag to get an idea of where you want the eyes.
Take your two white circles and using a glue dot place them where you think the eyes should be.
Using your black marker draw on the mouth and stitches.
Now unfold all of the folds, place your hand inside the envelope and stretch open the envelope.
This part is a little hard to describe so looking at the picture would be helpful. At the bottom, you will want to press down the middle and it will form some corners on each end.
Fold the two corners down and tape them down.
Let’s work on Frankenstein’s hair next. Take your black cardstock and make a few triangle snips along the front.
Fill your bag with fun goodies and candy and place the black cardstock over the opening.
Staple each side – I stapled twice in an X to be Frankenstein’s bolts.
Using the black ink, ink the edges of the envelope (this is optional, I just like how it looks).
So quick and easy you can make a bunch up in no time!
I hope you liked it and if you have any questions on how to fold the envelope to make a bag please let me know!
