Halloween Treat Bags

Go all out this Halloween, go the extra mile and jazz up trick or treating by creating these treat bags for candy. Gather your kiddos and their friends because this idea by our designer Mae Armstrong is something you can do together – it's super easy! 
You can find mini brown paper sacks at Michael's, they make a perfect treat bag, even before you have a chance to dress them up. You'll need to first precut the scallop from festive paper and cut decorative tags. Use the Skelanimals Thomas & Friends Peel and Stick stamps by PSA Essentials – Mae is really digging the spider from this one. Stamp right in the center of the scalloped tag using your PSA Stamper loaded with black ink, then glue to the decorative tag. Then fill the bag with your favorite candy! Candy corns, M&M's…. whatever your fancy.

You can take this idea even further (as Mae always does) for your Halloween party and hang the treat bags from a centerpiece. To create the centerpiece, Mae found some branches from her backyard, spray painted them, and placed them in a vase. She punched holes in the sacks and thread natural twine, then hung them from the branches. She snuck in a crow, too….
What a cute idea!
