Halloween Treat Bags.......

.......Courtesy of The Graphics Fairy
I was in charge of treat bags for my son Matthew's Halloween class party 
this year.  So I headed off to the Dollar Tree, the best place to get trinkets 
and stuff to fill the bags.The question was, what type of bag was I going to use.  
They sell those decorative seasonal bags that are always cute 
but I wanted something different. 
 I remember seeing this design while browsing The Graphics Fairy 
website so instead of decorative bags I went off in search of brown paper
 lunch bags and at 50 for $1.00, who can go wrong.  After I purchased my
 bags and trinkets I took a ride to Michael's where I bought 3 rolls of 
thin Halloween ribbon for $5.00, which I used to tie the bags closed.  

I used white Avery shipping labels to print the image onto, which I already had.  
Than I cut the edges with decorative scissors to add a little style, peeled the back 
off and stuck it to the brown paper lunch bags.  
And like magic.....instant treat bags!

To close the bags I folded the top over and used a hole punch to make
 two holes where I threaded through the decorative ribbon.  I thought that would 
give it a little extra bling.  

Even Mr. Rat likes the idea!

I hope the kiddies like them to!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll be partying with........
