You'll only need a clear candy bag (they sell these ones at my local craft store...in the candy-making section:), a stapler, piece of cardstock (cut to fit the width of your bag and folded in half), a few decorations (like an SC digi...lol), and some yummy snacks. I think it looks ever cuter if the candy matches your cardstock colors!
It's pretty cute, huh?!? (Sorry for the funky lighting...it's very cloudy here today; I have no inside natural light.)
I know a lot of you girls are from the UK and maybe places that don't celebrate Halloween. (What if you all just put on masks on October 31st and chose to make it a holiday?:):) Anyways, this project doesn't have to be for only Halloween treats. I used to package my plaques, pins, and mirrors this way for Etsy orders. It just adds that nice little finishing touch that says I care about presentation:). Also, you could do birthday treat bags this way and make them a little more unique than the store bought ones!:)
Here is a photo of the tree outside our back door. It's turning really pretty shades of yellow. While I love summer the most, I gotta say, these beautiful fall colors and yummy candy snacks are making me pretty happy:). Even if it is a bit chilly in the mornings now:).
Is it changing seasons in your part of the world yet??
It's changing colours outside here too - & all the leaves are blowing off & it's darker earlier in the day. I so agree with you about presentation - it makes such a difference & really sets what you & one does apart from the rest. I do like your idea of matching your cardstock to the treats' colours too - it's these things that stand out.ReplyDelete

Here in the UK its cold amd crisp in the early mornings and evenings, but warm in the sunshine during the day. The colours of the leaves are beautiful and they are just begining to fall.ReplyDelete
Just like your picture.
Hugs n' smiles
Thanks for sharing the cute bag idea and the tree picture!! This is my first year in Texas after living in NY and PA all my life. I really miss Fall ~ it was my favorite time of the year!!ReplyDelete
Halloween gets bigger and bigger each year here in the UK. we do halloween BIG, BIG, BIG at the library where I work as it's a safe environment for the kids to dress up and enjoy some scary fun. The children's room is currently decorated as a graveyard - looks fab. Autumn colour has also reached us and I love the beautiful trees that surround my home. I also love that my fruit trees are bowed low with apples and pears. I love baking pies and muffins at this time of year, and it makes up for the fact that my strawberries and red currants have finished. Thanks for another lovely post, have a great weekend, Jo xReplyDelete
