Hi there!  As promised, I'm back to share the goodie bags I've been working on for our annual Halloween party.  It was supposed to be last night, but my little ones were not feeling 100% so we postponed it until next weekend.  I like to put together a few things for the kids that come to the party, and this year's loot includes some mini boxes of stickers, two mini tubs of Play-Doh, and a notebook that I altered with Halloween papers and stamps.  Wanna see?



Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (white)
Patterned paper:  DCWV (Ghosts & Goblins Stack)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Tiny Treats:  Halloween)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black), Copic markers
Tools:  Fiskars (hole punch)
Accessories:  notepads, Mod Podge

These notepads were so easy to put together, I made 18 of them in one afternoon.  I got the 3 X 5 inch memo pads in a pack of 3 at Target for $1.99.  I used Mod Podge to cover them with patterned paper from the DCWV Ghosts & Goblins stack.  Then I cut a strip of white cardstock and stamped an image and "happy halloween" sentiment from PTI's Tiny Treats:  Halloween and colored the images with Copics.

For the bags, I used small white paper bags that I covered with more of the same patterned paper.  I punched slots at the top and tied them up with ribbon and a coordinating tag.  The tags were made with PTI's Mat Stack 2 die.  After stamping the circle frame and sentiment from Tag-its #7 in the middle of the Mat Stack, I trimmed off one side of the die cut so that I would have a round tag.  I added a pinked circle mat, a Tiny Tag, and some baker's twine to finish it off.

I'm so happy with the way these turned out, especially the notepads.  You can click on any of the photos to enlarge, and feel free to send me a message if you have any questions!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!  Have a great night!

Christina, these are so cute! The kids will love them. The only place locally I can find DCWV paper is JoAnn's and it sold out instantly. It looks like such a fun pack for kids. :)

Christina these Halloween treats are adorable, I'm sure all the kids will love 'em (as well as the moms). Of course you would use stamp images to coordinate with the paper, one of those small details that make a big statement. Love the ribbon treatment as well.
