BOO BAGS!!


Happy Monday! I'm feeling Crafty!! Back when the kids were little, I was always one of the room moms! It was such fun and the kids always look forward to what we put together for their parties! Fall was always such a fun time at school. I miss those days sometimes, but the creativity never ends in my mind.
This was one of my favorites I thought up; simple to make  personalized candy filled "Boo Bags", Yep, I put names on all 32 of them!
32 bags only cost 30 cents each!!


These can be made for anybody and are sooo Easy!! I still make these sometimes for Family and Friends, like these I whipped up on Saturday. While I prefer to decorate in Harvest Theme, I do like to get into the Halloween spirit with goodies like these. You can add other sayings besides names or leave blank. I fill them with candy, cookies, snacks or other tiny treasures like pumpkin scented votive candles. I found the glue and Bat stickers in the Dollar din at Target on Friday.
Everything else is from Michael's or Hobby Lobby.

MAKE THE BOO BAGS:


What you need:
Small White paper bags (3.5" x 2")
Googly eyes
Thin Black Assorted Ribbon 3/8"
Black alphabet stickers
Bat or some form of Halloween/Fall Stickers
Glue
Paper hole puncher
Black Tissue Paper
Pinking Shears

How to make:
Place two hole punches at the top of the bag, front face only, about a 1/2 inch down and an inch apart. While Bag is still flat, glue on the eyes about an inch down from the ribbon holes. Then, adhere a sticker in the bottom corner or anywhere you choose. Place a name, BOO! or saying with stickers in the middle. Open bag and thread ribbon, tying a bow in front. Fill with items. Cuts some squares (about 4' x 4") of black tissue paper with pinking shears and stick two squares in top of each bag. WooHoo, cute little "Boo" Treat Bags!!!



Here are some other things I made for the class/Fall parties over the years!! 

Giant Jack O' Lantern (with cupcakes)
This was a huge hit!!
How To HERE


GHOST SUCKERS 
Been making these forever!!
Use Kleenex, or my fave, plain white cotton fabric you can get cheap by the yard. Cut into squares with pinking shears. Cover Tootsie Blow Pops (forget those lil got tinier over the years Dum Dum suckers), You want a plump little ghosts. lol). Tie with thin colored ribbon and draw the eyes with a sharpie, you can draw a big oval scary mouth too. To display and transport, push them down in a block of Styrofoam.


MUMMY DOGS
Something other than candy!!
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Take a can of Pillsbury crescent dough sheets and cut into 10 stripes. Wrap 10 hot dogs in the dough leaving a little opening for the face. Place them on an ungreased large cookie sheet and lightly spray the mummy dogs with cooking spray. Bake for 13-17 minutes until golden brown and use mustard to put dots for eyes on your mummies.

I hope you go make Monday Marvelous!!
