halloween treat bags | my mind's eye

Firstly, thank you all for sharing in our loss and for your kind and reassuring words. The girls took the news better than expected, but poor Scout was mopey all day, just wanting to lay around and needing lots of extra love and attention. He misses poor Duke, too.

Danni and I were on the My Mind's Eye blog yesterday sharing a few examples of Halloween treat bags. Treat bags are the best...and here are a few I created, but be sure to go check out Danni's bags as well which are all super creative!

Because I still have two kids in school, I'm able to have lots of fun creating treat bags for classroom parties. And with one girl in 4th grade, they can't be too cute...especially for the boys. Today I want to share with you how you can make your treat bags unique and spook-alicious, all using your MME stamps. I began by pulling out all my scraps from the All Hallow's Eve mini book I created for you this month and started playing around.

First, I stamped on a small canvas bag and mini shipping tag, adding a decorative brad for a bit more fun.

Since the crow stamp was on my stamping block anyway, I stamped it onto some patterned paper, punched it and adhered it to a metal rimmed tag attached to my gift bag with some twine. I also layered patterned paper and chipboard above the row of stamped pumpkins.
Do you see the "tissue paper" sticking out of the larger gift bag? That's thin kraft paper from the painting section of The Home Depot that I've stamped and then crinkled before adding to the bag.

Using the Halloween word art, I repeatedly stamped the image onto my kraft bag and then an additional time as well so that I could punch it out and attach it to the bag flap with one of the decorative brads and atop a scallop punched shape.

No matter the size of the goody bags for your Halloween tricks or treats, MME has you covered! Here, I've used some covered chipboard left over from the mini book, a decorative brad and a bit more stamping to share another way that scraps, stamps, chipboard and die cuts really are the perfect combination this Halloween!
