I'm so happy to be here and participating with Get Your Crap Together's 31 Days of Halloween!  My name is Megin and I blog over at VMG206 where I share paper crafts, DIY projects and blogging tips. I'm sharing my Halloween Treat Bag with you today.

This was a quick and easy little bag to make.  I think it's fun to dress up the Halloween candy each year.  These little treat bags will be darling to hand out when the door bell rings ~ or to send to school with the kids for a party! Supplies: Butcher Paper Craft Glue Scissors Holiday Designer Paper and Coordinating Cardstock Circle and Scallop Punch Coordinating Stamps and Ink (googlie eyes) Assorted Ribbon Stapler Big Shot & Embossing Folder (optional) I made the little bags using a roll of butcher paper.  I just measured my embossing die and cut pieces out that would fit that width.   They measured 4" wide by 14" long; I made them twice as long so I could fold them over to create the bag. I used craft glue along the sides to seal the bags.  Then I embossed the bag with the spider web design (optional).  I just folded the top over at an angle and used some fancy scissors to trim.  Then I had fun with ribbons and stamps and embellished the little bags.  These were very easy to mass produce!
This is a very versatile project and can be made with whatever supplies you have on hand.  If you don't have any Halloween themed paper or stamps, you only need a few sheets of card stock and a few stamps to embellish.  You can easily get these at any craft store.  Just have fun! I hope you enjoyed this little paper craft today.  I'd love for you to visit me over at VMG206 and check out some of my the other fun DIY and Paper Craft projects. Thanks again for letting me share, Chelsea!
