Halloween Treat Bags 2020

Hello crafty reader!  I am excited about October 31st because this is my niece's first Halloween in the US.  But before tick-or-treating, we have to make Halloween goodie bags to give to her classmates.  She sure was excited to put this all together, and she was very involved from beginning to end.

I sure was glad to be able to use these wonderful Halloween 12x12 designer paper.  My niece picked the designer paper, and she gave me company as I make the treat bags.  

She put the candy in the treat bags, and also put the Halloween accents on them.

Aside from the treat bags to give to her classmates, we made more to give to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

Here's a vlog of us making the treat bags.  I sure had fun doing this very memorable activity with her, and we have a video to prove it.

Stay safe, especially this Halloween!

Thanksgiving Goodie Bottles

Hello crafty reader!  I still had leftover Starbucks bottles from our Halloween Treat Project last month.  So I decided to make some Thanksgiving Goodie Bottles to give to my co-workers.  I am a Starbucks junkie, and when these Starbucks Mocha in bottles are on special pricing at Costco, I buy a case.  I stopped saving these bottles after I've had so many.  I think this bunch is the last of them, unless I see more buried somewhere.  To make this a quick and easy project, I wrapped the bottles with Halloween and Thanksgiving themed washi and glitter tapes.

I love these die cut Fall leaves by Martha Stewart.  I'm not sure if they are still existing, but they have been in my Thanksgiving drawer for quite sometime.  Aren't those owls super duper cute???

I also unearthed some inchies I got from swaps many years ago.  I kind didn't want to part with them, but they needed to be appreciated by other people, so I used them in this project.

This year's Thanksgiving won't be the same, as we are celebrating from our own homes.  No big gatherings due to the pandemic.  But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.  That's why I made these treat bottles to give out to hopefully add a special memory this season.

Stay safe as you celebrate with your immediate families and super close friends.  'Til next blog!
