With Halloween coming up, I wanted to give the Mess Maker's preschool teachers something sweet. I came up with little treat bag covers to dress-up a plain little cello bag with their favorite candies!
For each bag cover, I cut a piece of 12x12 black carstock in half (2- 6"x12" pieces). I trimmed one of the pieces to 10", then scored one end of each piece at 2 1/2". I scored the other end of the 12" piece at 2". Then I adhered the two 2 1/2" sections together to form one long strip. I folded along the score lines and folded the 2" flap over the end of the shorter piece and had my cover. Then I placed the cello bag with candy inside the cover, punched holes at the top and threaded ribbon through to secure it. Here is a side view:
To embellish, I covered the front with cute little pumpkin paper by the Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). I added a die-cut pumpkin (Create a Critter) and printed "No Tricks...Only Treats!" onto it. I tied green leaf ribbon to the stem and adhered it on the front. Then I cut two candies from the Mini Monsters cartridge and adhered them on the flap.
Hope the teachers will get a kick out of these "sweet treats"! :)
Have a creative day!
