Cute little treat bags!!

Hello everyone!

I 've made a candy or treat bag to share today! This can be for sending off with your child to school or a Halloween party at the office.....even for a Thanksgiving gathering or potluck! You can use it for putting candy in or a small handmade gift! 
Either way, these are so cute!

For Wild Orchid Crafts October DT challenge theme was "Treat Bag/Box"! 
I hope you will stop by the WOC YouTube channel to see what 
everyone else made for our October Monthly challenge! 
It's awesome to see fresh ideas and it's a great place to gain some inspiration!

I used a Tim Holtz die called "In the Bag" which is an adorable miniature grocery paper bag "mini me"! LoL..then I recycled a bathroom paper roll!

Here's the tutorial video, pics then the product list with links to follow!
Thanks for dropping by!

Bathroom paper roll treat holder,
"Boo to You"

Tim Holtz die, "In The Bag"
"Trick or Treat Bag"

"Fall Treat or gift Bag" 

These were fun and easy to put together! I hope you try some for yourself! I think I would have used the paper roll treat holder for my kids Halloween class party and fill it with candy and or some teeny toys, which in that case I would definitely use the roll, if it was for something very light in weight, I could just make it with the paper! 
Save a few for future projects :)

  1. Jules, my friend Nancy does not get on you tube much but she never misses one of your vids. It's so cute, she disabled and doesn't get out much, but I have her over once a week to craft and she looks so forward to our day. She says I remind her of her oldest of two daughters. This daughter I remind her of was killed at. 16 in a car accident. Nancy is an incredible Christian woman and I think that's why she has kinda bonded with you over you tube. Lol. I also enjoy your vids and I use my hot glue helper all the time. Nancy follows you on FB but she always makes sure to tell me that she'd never bother you but has made sure to keep up with your move. Thank you for your wonderful vids and for some reason, I was led to tell you that story. God bless you and your family, Carole

    1. Carole, you're so sweet to share made me smile:) Please ask Nancy to keep me in prayer and I'll be sure to do the same for you girls too:) You never know what God has in mind, but I do know that He's who brings people together! Please ask Nancy to message me or comment on FB or something:) It is no bother really, it would make me so happy to hear from her ok:) ...give her a huge squeeze from me! God Bless you all too! xo, Jules:)
