12 Days of Holiday Crafts by Crafting CheerfullyChristmas movie printable treat bag.

Hello Crafty Friends! It’s day #2 of my annual series “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” and I am very excited to share this fun treat bag with you! Christmas movies are one of my favorite parts of the holiday season and I created this treat bag design to celebrate some of the classics. 

Can you name all of the movies on the bag? I doodled these cute images on my iPad, then turned them into a treat bag that is perfect for festive gatherings, movie nights and cute gifts. The treat bags feature movies like Elf, A Christmas Carol, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas. 

Three Christmas movie treat bags are grouped together and sitting on a green surface.

This movie-themed treat bag comes in two different sizes so you can pick the size that works best for you. These would look adorable at a holiday-themed party or a Christmas movie viewing party. Fill the bags with sweets, treats, gifts or even a gift card for streaming holiday movies! 

Christmas movie treat bags sit next to bottle brush trees and have festive tissue paper sticking out.

This cute treat bag goes really well with my free printable Buddy the Elf syrup label. A bottle of syrup could technically fit in the larger bag but you would need to add a piece of chipboard to the bottom to make it sturdy enough. I also wouldn’t recommend lifting the bag by it’s handle as it wouldn’t be strong enough to hold the weight of the bottle.

Movies Featured

I’ve had a few readers reach out asking for the list of movies featured so I thought I would add that to the post. They were planning on playing games with the treat bags to see if everyone could guess the movies. How fun! Below are what movies my little doodles represent. :) 


  • Home Alone – red house
  • Elf – green and yellow hat
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas – sad pine tree with ornament
  • A Christmas Carol – black top hat
  • Miracle on 34th Street – street sign
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas – green hand with red ornament
  • Frosty the Snowman – gray top hat and corncob pipe
  • A Christmas Story – leg lamp
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – green winter hat
  • White Christmas – Santa Hat (lots of Christmas movies would work for the Santa hat!)
  • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – blue elf hat and Yukon Cornelias’s pick ax
  • The Muppet Christmas Carol – Mr. Bunson and Beaker muppets
  • It’s a Wonderful Life – bell with wings
  • The Santa Clause – snow globe (though my kids have pointed out the base of the snow globe should have red and gold on it….so this one may be questionable for super fans of that movie!)

Supplies Needed

Supplies for the treat bag including a paper trimmer, scoring board, and printable treat bag.

How to Make the Christmas Movie Party Favor

Step One: Cut out the pieces for the treat bag. I used a paper trimmer for all of the straight edges, then switched to my paper scissors to finish cutting the pieces out.

Step Two: Score the fold lines. A scoring board is really helpful for creating nice, smooth and crisp fold lines. If you are just making one for a gift I wouldn’t worry about having a scoring board, but if you are making a bunch as party favors, a scoring board can really come in handy! 

The pieces are scored using a scoring board and stylus.

Gently fold the boxes along the score lines.

Step Three: Form the bag by placing adhesive on the tabs. I used 1/4″ Score-Tape – my favorite double-sided tape. It is nice and strong which is great for treat bags. One thing to keep in mind is the tape is not re-positionable, so you need to connect them correctly on the first try. 

Double-sided tape is added to the tabs.

Attach the two pieces together using the tabs.

The two treat box pieces are adhered together along one of the tabs.

The box is formed by attaching the second tab.

Step Four: Fold in the bottom of the box. Start by folding down the “H” piece, then the two side pieces, followed by the final piece with my logo on it.  

The bottom of the paper treat bag is folded together and closed.

Step Five: Add a paper handle to the treat bag. Place double-sided tape on the ends of each handle and attach it to inside the bag.

Double-sided tape is added to the ends of the paper handle.

The handle is adhered to the inside of the bag.

Step Six: Fill the treat bags with sweets and treats and enjoy! To add additional stability to the treat bags you can add a piece of chipboard or cardboard to the bottom of the box. If you are planning to make multiples, I recommend making one and testing it with the treats you plan to place inside the bag to make sure it will be strong enough.
