Happy Halloween Treat Bags

At my son's school, I volunteer weekly with some very nice women. I've made some great friends. Since our kids will be getting so many sweets today, I decided to give little treat bags to the adults. I started this project on Thursday night. I didn't have 20 glassine bags, so I used snack-sized Ziploc bags. I bought a large bag of M&Ms at Costco. I poured 1/3 cup of candy in each bag. I made the toppers from Stampin' Up designer paper and various paper punches. The skull stamp is from Imaginisce.

The guys are outside getting the house decorated for tonight. Have a safe Halloween!

Treat Bag Ingredients
Stamps: sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes), skull (Imaginisce)
Paper: Rockabilly Speciality, Ghostly Greetings, & Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper (SU!), Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss (all SU!), white paper (Papertrey Ink - love this stuff!)
Ink: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss
Tools: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Drippy Goo (Martha Stewart), Bat (Martha Stewart), Word Window (SU!), 1" circle punch (SU!), 1 1/16" circle punch (Marvy)
Other: foam tape, rhinestones (Michael's), bags (Ziploc), M&Ms

These are so cute Anthonette! I wish we did Halloween here (Oz). Last year I stocked up on goodies in case anyone dropped by...and no one did. This year, I forgot and didn't get anything and of course six little trick or treaters came knocking and I felt terrible!

I'll remember again next year...and maybe make something like these!

Best wishes,
