It's no secret that fall is our favorite season around here at Freckle & Fair. And it's also no secret that we watch way too much TV. So when we realized we could marry one of our favorite television holidays with our second-favorite fall holiday, we had to make it happen.
You may be familiar with the "Treat Yo'Self" episode of Parks & Rec, featuring the amazing Retta and Aziz Ansari encouraging each other (and others) to treat themselves to basically whatever they wanted, for one day of the year. So, we bring you treat or treat yo'self 2015, Freckle & Fair style. Bag of Reese's cups? Treat yo'self. Hot toddys? Treat yo'self. Cashmere scarves? Treat yo'self. Tall leather boots? Treat. Yo. Self. It's the best season of the year!
So, print off our treat bags — fo' free! — fill 'em with your favorite candy, put on your favorite sweater and curl up for a Netflix & candy binge session.
Making these treat bags is crazy easy! Here's a step-by-step walk-through:
- Download our printable treat bag design.
- Tape down the bag opening and the bag flap of a brown paper lunch sack using painter's tape (or another tape that won't rip the paper).
- Load the bags into an inkjet printer, top of the bag head first. I loaded the bags bottom-side down, so it would print on front of the bag without the bottom. However, every printer is different, so test yours first if you're not sure. I also had to gently give the bag a little nudge when it started printing so it would feed correctly.
- Remove the tape and stuff it full of treats!
