Halloween -a-thon Day 6--Time for Treats!

Some people would say the whole point of Halloween is to dress up. But SOME of us might say the whole point is the TREATS! I know for my kids the treats would (probably) win out. Anyway, I've done a few cards done a few decorations--now it's time for some treats. These are super easy to make. I used PTI's glassine bags--you can find them HERE. I used a (yes, retired, of course!) SU set called Halloween Backgrounds. I stamped on the bags and LET THEM DRY! This will take a few minutes! Be patient or you will smear them. Then fill with treats, fold over the top, punch a couple of holes and tie a "cheater bow". Voila! You are done.
I used Elegant Eggplant for the bats, Green Galore for the spiders, Only Orange for the candy corn, and Summer Sun for the moons and stars.
I went to buy candy corn and M & M's to fill the bags and what do you suppose I found? Candy Corn M & M's! They are oversized white chocolate M & M's that are yellow, orange, and white. Cute, but too sweet. I like regular ones better.
Here's a pic of several together. I may just finish up my supply of glassine bags and give these out to Emily's GS troop and Sunday School. I already have other plans for her classmates.

Hope you've enjoyed this post and maybe gotten a little inspiration! Have a great day.

Seriously, these are just too cute (love the fact that they look simple to make too....)! You have given me a great idea for Ivy's volleyball long do you think it would take to whip up 35 of these?!
