Just {Batty} for these Trick or Treat Sacks

I was standing in the check out line at Walmart and while waiting I grabbed Ms. Martha Stewart’s new Fancy Halloween magazine and flipped through it. I saw this cute idea, and I had all the supplies at home, plus  it was easy enough that I created it by memory. I love them.

I first cut circles out from my cricut using the Platinum Schoolbook Cartridge. You can easily trace something round and cut them out that way too, or if you have a large round punch that would work as well. Then you will start by punching four wholes in your round paper, with a whole punch. 😉

to make the BATS~YOU WILL loop the ribbon through, tieing two knots to secure the ribbon bats.

to ad hear to the bag, I just used A GLUE STICK AND glue it on. HOW CUTE HUH? ribbon bat’s FLYING over the scary moon. LOVE IT!

I used my Holiday stamp and ink pad to stamp some sayings. I also wrote Trick or Treat with a sharpie marker.

You can do this where you want, mine is in the bottom right corner. You can stamp, stencil, or write some fun halloween messages, but mainly TRICK OR TREAT! since it is a treat sack. 😉

fill with TRICK OR TREATS! THEN fold it three times and fold each corner, so it looks like a tombstone almost.

AND THERE YOU GO! GREAT FOR A HALLOWEEN PARTY at home at school or just to give your kids or kids friends etc.
