Halloween Treat Bags {Monday's Cup of Creativity}

I made these little Halloween treat bags this weekend for my niece and nephew. They were quick, easy, and inexpensive!

They are small (not Trick-or-Treating bags), but they are the perfect size for the little Halloween treats I am mailing to them.

The Jack-O-Lantern with the side smile is for my 3-year old nephew. (Ignore the glue spot-I took the photo when it was still wet-oops!)

The owl is for my 7-year old niece (she's into owls these days).

I had most of the materials on-hand already (except the bags) so it was super inexpensive. 
Here's How I did It.

  • Treat bags (3 for $1 at Target-the $ Spot)
  • felt
  • buttons (for owl eyes)
  • 2 Double sided adhesive sheets(I got mine from Michael's)
I made the pattern for the appliques by finding free owl and pumpkin clip art online and printing them to the right size on card stock (I can't draw to save my life). I traced each pattern on one side of an adhesive sheet. Then, I attached the other side to the felt and cut out the applique. After the shape was cut, I peeled the paper off the other side and stuck the applique to the bag. For the owl, I did this for both the body and tummy. Next, I cut out the beak, mouth, eyes, nose and glued them all on with the button eyes. Super easy!

Delightfully Creating,
