Halloween Popcorn Treats

Hello All My Crafty Friends!!

Warning!!  This is a long post :)

It seems like such a long time since I spent any time in my craft room!!  We were in the process of redecorating our bedroom, so the house has been in total chaos for the last few weeks.  Painting, crown molding, new furniture, a new sleep number bed!!  Whew, lots of stuff!!  The bedroom is all done now, and looks fabulous.  We still have a little accessorizing to do, but all the big stuff is done.

Anyway, with Halloween a few days away, I needed to get into my craft room to make some treat bags for mine and my DH coworkers.  Since I had a short amount of time and needed to make 30 of them, I decided to make something simple.  I found this great recipe for Salted Caramel Popcorn at, so I wanted to make some and give this instead of candy.  It is yummy and low in calories.  You can click on the link for the recipe.  I had some cute Halloween Ziploc bags I found at Micahels for $1 last year and decided to fill these with the popcorn and I added a cute little tag.

Here is a picuture of the first 15, and a close up of the cute bag.


I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More to cut the tag at 4 " and Mini Monsters for the cute little ghost at 1.75".  The cardstock is Coordinations, for the tag I used the Black Magic and embossed with a Hello Kitty folder from Sizzix.  I added a strip of glittery green paper at the bottom cut with Martha Stewarts Drippy Goo Punch.  I used the PK - Monster Mash assortment for the face on the ghost and added some glossy accents to the eyes and mouth.  The sentiment is from Crafysprouts, "Totally Witchin" set.  I punched a hole in the treat bag and tied the tag on with My Craft Spot Crinkle Ribbon in Marmalade.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

More than Favors - Wacky Wednesday #57 - Anything Goes

Halloween Treat Boxes

I made these cute little treat boxes from Tag, Bags, Boxes and More, using the popcorn box.  I just cut and attached a strip of cardstock for the handle.  The cute little figures were all cute with Paper Doll Dress Up.  I think the tag with the sentiment is from TBBM as well.  I added some dimensional stickers and some candy and they are good to go!!  I am also entering this in the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

Halloween Treat Bags

I made these treat bags for my grandkids last year.  Since I did not have my blog last year, I thought I would post these now.  I made one for each one of them with the character they were dressing up as.
I used Paper Doll Dress Up and Everyday Paper Dolls for all the cuts.  I took paper bags I bought at Walmart and decorated them with cardstock, stickers and foam letters for the names.  I am entering this in the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky and the Paper Cutz Challenge #112
