For our final day of last minute Halloween ideas, I'm sharing two quick and easy treat giving ideas. First up is this organza favor bag I found in the wedding aisle. I've had a bunch in my stash for some time actually. Imagine how cute these would be in black, orange, green or purple?! Or muslin. If I had muslin, the stamping would have shown up better, but oh well. You can kinda see it. I stamped it with the Build a Chevron Background stamp set in orange and black. Cool, huh?!

I added a label to the front and filled it with nugget candies wrapped with the MCT slider treat box die, made specifically for these candies. Cute!

But hold on....who isn't batty for treats!! This project is one the kids might enjoy making. Simple idea that would be great for classmates, teacher, babysitter, or special friend. Toilet paper rolls!! Yep. Easy recycle project that takes only a few minutes to create. Roll black paper around a toilet paper tube and adhere. Cut simple wing shapes by hand and glue to the back. Add googly eyes and a couple of white paper scrap fangs. Fold in one end, add candy, fold in the other end and viola! Super cute bat treats.

Add a tag if you like. I used the MCT curly labels and Spooky Starry Night stamp set.

  2. Your toilet paper treat container idea is FANG-TASTIC and you did a wicked awesome job with your stamping on your treat bag. Love both your ideas and love too how you used Miss Emma's goodies.

  3. The organza bags could be good and used for softer occasions, it is a great idea, I like how you dressed them up in the end.
    I love the little tube bats with their wings holding the sentiment! Perfect.

  24. Love treat containers. This is a great idea and so simple for kids. Thank you for sharing.

  25. How easy and cute are these? I love this idea. I knew I was saving all of the tubes for something. This project is tube worthy ;) Your Chevy stamped bag is wonderful. I stamped some ribbon with dots and it took forever to dry and does not show much. A nice muslin bag would show more. The candy wraps are perfect. Sweet job!
