How to Make Halloween Treat Bags with a Munbyn Label Printer
If you saw my post on How to Make Party Favors with a Munbyn Label Printer last month, you’ll know that I love this new little thermal label printer and I explain why in that post. So be sure to go check it out.
This time we’re going to take my party favor idea a step further and create Halloween Treat Bags for the neighborhood. I’ll be making more and more bags between now and Halloween so that I have enough for all the little ghouls and boos. But let me show you what I created so far and also how I plan on taking a bunch of these treats to share at the office too!
First, let’s go over how to design the labels. I started by checking out the options at the Munbyn site and saw these pretty Pink Shipping Labels. And since Pink is the new Orange for Halloween this year, I knew they would be perfect and on trend! I still have a bunch of 2 inch Pink Circle Stickers, so I wanted to use those as well. Next, I dug out my bin of treat bags from my party planning stash and found a bunch of cute 5×7 striped and chevron treat bags that I bought ages ago. I’m happy that I finally get to use! So with that, I headed to Creative Fabrica to select a cute design for the labels. I knew I wanted to use the shipping labels as the front of the bag with a cute design and the circle labels to seal the bags and finding a design that I loved was a cinch, it took less than 5 minutes. Once I downloaded the designs to my computer, I opened Canva to start creating the labels.
Starting with the circle labels, I create a 2×2 Label Circle design.
Next, I uploaded the design I found at Creative Fabrica and centered it on the template. I downloaded the file as a PDF to print.
Next, I created a 4×6 template and added the Creep it Real image from Creative Fabrica and downloaded it as a PDF as well. I will note that I purposely did not center the design because I wanted to leave room at the top for the circle sticker.
Next, I opened both files in Adobe Acrobat and set up the printer parameters. It’s super easy to switch label size, just select the correct size from the long list on the printer dialog screen.
I loaded the corresponding labels in the Munbyn Thermal Printer and printed a batch of both the pink circle and pink 4×6 labels. I then added the shipping labels to the favor bags and filled them up with candy and sealed them with the circle labels. They came out so stinkin’ cute! That little retro ghost is so adorable! How awesome would these be for classroom party? You can personalize them too. If I was a teacher, I know I would whip up a bunch of these goodie bags for my students for every holiday and occasion.
I created a quick video to show you how easy it is to load the labels. You got to see how easy the process is, it takes seconds. And the printer is so fast. I also share in the video how I assembled and packed all of the treat bags, so check it out below.
I had a bunch of smaller bags in my party stash so I filled them with some more candy and sealed them with the circle stickers as well. I also had a few pink striped popcorn boxes, so I added a circle thermal sticker to the front and stuffed them with candy for those who just want a piece or two instead of a whole bag. The smaller bags and popcorn boxes are perfect for the office along with a few of the larger bags I assembled, I can’t wait to share them with my coworkers on Halloween. I know they are going to go nuts over them!
Want to make these yourself? Let’s go over the supplies:
5 x 7 Treat Bags
Candy for the Favor Bags

Didn’t they come out cute? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love how this little shipping label printer has opened so many possibilities for my party planning projects and crafts! I especially love that I don’t need to refill the ink and the thermal labels come in large quantities which will last me a long time. It prints in high resolution with a crisp look and saves time. It can print 72 labels per minute! Another favorite feature that the labels are BPA-free, which is great for when you are using them near food like these treat bags. Did I mention how cute it is? I especially like the pink color and white color of the printer, it matches my craft room perfectly. Of course, it works great for shipping labels and personalized sticker labels, but I love using in in not so obvious ways.
What will you be creating with your Munbyn Label Printer for Halloween? I’d love to hear from you and see your creations, be sure to tag me on Social @michellespartyplanit.
