Halloween Treat bag

I'm getting into full swing with Halloween and Christmas ideas, so it's likely you will see a lot of it over the next few months - my apologies to those who do not like these holidays.  However, they are my two favorite holidays, and I love to decorate and make cards for both!  This is a simple bag pattern from My Scrap Chick, and you can find it under the mini patterns as the treat bag trio.  This is the first one I did, so it was more of a test than anything.  I actually plan to pop dot the decorations, but here are the specs. 

I cut it to a full 12x12 mat, which made it about 5" high.  I used some cute double sided cardstock from Joann's, and it was a pattern included in the recent 5/$1 sale.  WOO HOO!!!  I plan on making a bunch for nieces, nephews, and students this year!  The added embellishments are from a huge K&Co assortment pack, and I should have used pop dots, but since this was a test run, I didn't.  I plan on filling with candy in a treat bag, and then tying the handles together with a cute Halloween ribbon.  This was so simple, there really isn't anything else to say, so thanks for visiting today!


  1. I like the halloween bag. It came out good. The kids will love them. Halloween is my favorite holiday.
