Treats, Only Treats!

The kids and I are going to my friend Amber's house with my friend Lyndsey and her kids for a Halloween party. We're going to have snacks, games and maybe a craft. I made goodie bags for the kids and I'm really excited about how they turned out. Here's my tutorial:

I got the idea to make little pumpkins from a workshop I went to at Lisa's. For the pumpkins we made there we used Stampin Up!'s wide oval punch. I didn't want my pumpkins that big and I don't have any oval punches so I used my Cricut and cut out a bunch of 1 inch ovals out of orange card stock. I took three and layered them to give the pumpkin look. Can you tell? I have one in the middle and then used adhesive to adhere one on each side. After they were done I took an orange marker and outlined the edges...you'll be able to see that better in another picture.

Then I took a piece of white card stock, 4 inches by 3 1/4 inches, and scored it at 2 inches.

I attached my pumpkin (see the outlines I did?) and drew on a stem with a green marker. Then I used a stamp that I borrowed from my friend Tonya (from a set I plan on ordering soon, Teeny Tiny Wishes) and stamped Happy Halloween.

I put a fun size bag of candy inside a baggie (one of those jewelry baggies) and adhered the card stock to the bag and ta da...a treat bag. I'm not a huge fan of all of the white space, but it's simple and cute.

What do you think? Did you make goodie bags?

Kelli! I love it- you take the time to do such cute stuff, rather than quickly make a bag like I would! Good for you!

Those goody bags are so cute! I love the pumpkins....who knew you could make something so cute with just an oval punch!

Kelli said...

Sick! You're SO crafty. I did do goodie bags for trick or treaters and put Bible verses inside with candy. Yours are much cuter though. Mine are Ziplocks. =)

You're tagged on my blog. Can't wait to hear what you have to say!

Oh, they turned out very cute!

Goodie bags yes, but didn't make them, I just stuck with the store bought stuff!
