Halloween Treat Bags

Halloween is coming near and whether you want to hand out goody bags to co-workers, trick or treaters or even clients this is one that anyone can do…

 

               Supplies that will be needed:

  1. Cardstock paper to make to stamp on
  2. Halloween stamps
  3. Black or any other color ink pads
  4. Address labels in white
  5. Treat bags (you can buy at any craft store or Wal-Mart)
  6. Candy (Hershey Nuggets preferred)

 

First layout your address labels:

These are left over from our wedding…I still have tons of them…lol

Next get some archival ink so the ink will not smudge and will be waterproof

 

 

 

You will need some Halloween stamps.  You can go to Michael’s and JoAnn’s Fabric and get small stamp sets for $1.00 and Wal-Mart carries similar ones for 97 cents.  (I could show you a bunch more but this is just a taste of the stamps)

 

 

You will also need something similar to Hershey Nuggets or Hershey nuggets.

 

 

and of course the bags you are going to put your treats in…

Now stamp on the labels however you want your design to be….

 

 

 

 

Now let’s assemble the labels to the candy and the bags:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After you finish all the stamping and wrapping you can proceed to putting the candy in a clear bag or a decorative bag.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now comes the topper for the bag.

 

 

 

Attach the topper to the bag with a staple or you can use a hole punch and some black ribbon to close it.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is your finished product to give out to your trick or treaters, friends, co-workers or clients…

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.  More to come.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

 

 

 

 

Hobby Lobby Shopping Trip

So I decided to stop in Hobby Lobby..it had been awhile since I had been the Hobby Lobby on the East side of Plano…so I wandered in to see what I could find..and you know I found something….Well..here are some of the goodies that I found..a new rubber stamp to make an awesome card with…a pack of mini clay pots for 83 cents normally $3.00 a pack..(one pot is broken) ..I bought some Valentine candy and some candy decorations for cookies/cupcakes…I finally found a SLICE spatula..every Michael’s was out of stock and anyone who was still selling SLICE still had them full price..so I was pleasantly surprised when I found it half price at Hobby Lobby.  I got some baking cups that do not need to go in a muffin pan on clearance..  I got a tube of icing for $1.79.   Some Christmas stuff marked to 90% off..

Homemade Chocolate Cherry goodness

So after working out with my new Wii..I decided to make some chocolate goodness for my husband…he loves getting little surprises in his lunch kit…

Here are his little surprises:  Chocolate Covered Cherries.

(do not mind the date on the photos..my camera keeps adjusting to the past I didn’t even own it in 2007)

Homemade Chocolate Cherries

I also put little hearts on them before the chocolate completely dried.

Sprinkled with candy hearts

I put them in little paper cups with hearts on them..(a clearance find from Valentine’s Day last year)

Packaged in a Valentine Box

Then another clearance find from the same last year clearance.  Valentine boxes.

Packed & Ready to go in my husband's lunch
