Halloween Treat Bags

Hi!
Halloween isn't really celebrated here in Croatia....everyone knows about it but there's no trick-or-treating...I noticed that my neighbour carves a pumpkin and puts a candle in it and I just love them for it! ;)
For the past few years I've been hosting a Halloween party for our family and friends...they get a 'HOOT' out of the decorations and love my brownies and apple pie. And I do hand out treat for my kids schoolmates and the neighbourhood kids. Which brings me to this....




These Halloween treat bags were totally inspired by Michelle Wooderson who is the BOMB!!! This woman ROCKS!!! I always find inspiration on her blog! I've always used plastic bags when I did these treat bags but I got the idea from Mish to use paper bags.


I will be handing these babies out....well this is one of the designs I have in mind....I'll be posting more treat bags in the next few days. (you can click on the photos for a closer look)


I had such fun with this treat bag....I embossed the paper bag using the cuttlebug and I used this ADORABLE Halloween stamp set by Hero Arts. Once again I went to town with the black stickles. The buttons are my handmade fimo buttons.


Anyways, I'll leave a list of the materials I used later on....gotta put Jakov down for his nap.
Bye!
materials - stamps (Hero Arts CL239), inks (Adirondack Pitch Black, ColorBox chalk ink), Stickles (Black Diamond), ribbon, string, my handmade fimo buttons, Cuttlebug embossing folder, clothes pin, pop dots, gel pen (glitter), nestabilities circle die.
Pin It!
