Happy Halloween!

It's that time of year again for yummy Halloween treats! What better way to give your treats than in festive handmade packaging! This is a simple and easy way to present a gift. For this project you will need the following items:

Tag punch, Happy Halloween stamp, cello treat bags, 1/4" hole punch, black and orange rhinestones, black ribbon, black ink pad, and orange cardstock.

First, start by punching out your tag shape from the orange cardstock. Then, punch a ribbon hole at the top of the tag.

Next, stamp 'Happy Halloween' diagonally on the tag. I also inked around the edges of the tag to give a distressed look.

Now it's time to embellish! Place a few of the orange and black rhinestones in the bottom right corner of your tag in a cluster.

Now, place your treats inside one of your cello bags. I used homemade white chocolate and coconut cookies, but you could use Halloween candy, a candied apple, or anything else festive! Then using the black American Crafts sheer ribbon, tie the tag around the top of your treat bag.

....and voila! Your festive Halloween treat gift is finished!

Happy Halloween and Happy Crafting!
