Halloween Treat Bags
I made these cute little Halloween treat bags for my sons pre-K class. I thought they were so cute, I made 12 more for my friends daughter to take to daycare. They were so easy to make! I took a 2.5x8.5 piece of orange paper and covered it in this candy corn Recollections paper I got from Michaels.(the sides are open) I folded the top and bottom using my scor tool( I gotta be honest here, I eyeballed the folds at the top and bottom! ) I used my 1 3/8 round punch to punch out the circle. I then took 2x3 clear plastic ziploc bags I found on Etsy (100 for about $3.00! I LOVE ETSY)and filled them with candy corn. I punched a hole in the top of the clear bag and treat bag and then threaded the orange ribbon thru both the top of the treat bag and the clear bag. I used my scallop punch and used my Tim Holtz distress Ink(thanks to 2 Creative chicks, they were selling at the Crop Out Breast Cancer crop)and inked around the edges of the tag. I used a sentiment from Bug Bites stamps,love the saying! I think they turned out cutie patootie! They are so easy to make even my non crafting girlfriends think they can manage these!!
I am entering this into the Getting Cricky with K Andrews Simply Sunday Halloween Treat holder challenge and the More Than Favors challenge, Treat bags or boxes!
