Makeover Monday Halloween Treat Bags! :)

Hi everyone!  Have you ever been to the pumpkin patch in 80 degree weather?  Me either until yesterday, lol!  We went to see my dad's pumpkin weigh in at the local Giant Pumpkin Contest...

The biggest pumpkin was 1692 lbs.!!!  My dad's was bigger and came in a better standing than last year, so he was super-pumped!  :)

Anyway, speaking of pumpkins and fall, today is Makeover Monday, and I promised to be back with a solution for the Halloween Treat Bags for those of us parents and friends who cannot send candy treats to school.  The first thing I tried was this...

The Post-It Note pad just fit perfectly into the clear bag.  I was so excited!  I used the Sweet Salutations My Acrylix Stamp set to make the seal and backed it with a 2 inch scalloped circle of black glitter paper...

The second idea I had just came to me when I looked at the kit.  AND the best part is that it actually comes WITH THE KIT!!! 

Who needs candy?  Just give them the stickers to play with!!! 

It was super-simple to trim the stickers apart to fit in the treat bag, so I used the Frightfully Fun stamp set to add this little fella...

I could not resist adding JUST a bit more fun to this I popped in a spider ring too!  

So, do you have any other non-candy filled ideas?  Please share them! 

If you want to make these super-cute bags for some kiddos in YOUR life, you can find the Close to My Heart Cut Above Halloween Kits HERE on my website.  Add the two stamp sets I used here, plus one more size C or D stamp set that you like and guess what?  You will qualify to get this little mini-stamp set (a $13.95 value) for FREE in September...

IF you also add the glitter paper to your order, you will also qualify to get the Stamp of the Month (a $17.95 value) for just $5 as well!!!  Bonus!

Time is running out to take advantage of these offers AND get your treats made in time, so better decide soon!  Just two days left! :)


  1. Wait ... Kids don't bring candy to school for fun occasions any more? Your ideas are adorable but I'm really stuck on what happens for valentines day or their birthday.

    1. It is due to the more food items can be brought in to pass out. We get pencils, lol, lots of pencils. ;)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
