Using the October Elle's Studio Kit to make Halloween Treat Bags

Happy Monday!

I was completely in love with the October Elle's Studio Kit and exclusive Halloween Acrylics and Glitter Foam Kit. I saw those acrylic pieces and just knew I had to make Halloween candy favors for my kids. Didn't they turn out darling? I had a ridiculous amount of fun making them. Read below for step by step instructions.

For my first favor, I used a green and white striped bag and filled it with Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn. I then adhered the Halloween card from the October Kit. I attached a couple of acrylic pieces from the Halloween Kit (the pumpkin and white speech bubble,) and a couple of enamel bits and pieces from my stash. I used a black star paper clip to hold everything to my bag.

My second favor, used a clear bag that I had on hand (these are generally used to package cookies for the holidays.) I added a cup of candy, and tied it loosely with some twine from my stash. I then took a shipping tag and a couple stripes of washi tape from my stash and glued the acrylic piece "Trick or Treat" to the top. I then adhered the adorable candy corn acrylic piece. Seriously isn't that just the perfect finishing touch?

I know my kids will love getting these on Halloween and they were super simple to make, and a lot of fun. I might (ahem) have eaten a few too many Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn in the process.  *I will not be held responsible for candy consumed while recreating these treat bags.*  :-)

I hope this post inspired you to use your Elle's Studio items to make some fun treat bags. We would love to see what you are creating. Make sure to upload your projects to the gallery at Elle's Studio and tag your projects using the hashtag #ellesstudio.

Have a great day!
