Creepy Custom Favor Bags

Create creepy candy favors with treat bags that appear to be dripping with slimy sludge.

Introduction

Punches and rubber stamps inscribed with seasonal phrases make it easy to assemble dozens at once as you prepare for Halloween revelers. 

Materials

  • Cellophane bags
  • Heavyweight paper or card stock
  • Scissors
  • Craft edge punch
  • Halloween rubber stamps
  • Ink pad
  • Double-sided tape
  • Candy

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut heavyweight paper or card stock slightly wider than your cellophane bags. Clip one edge with a craft edge punch.

  2. Step 2

    Fold label in half; stamp with a Halloween message.

  3. Step 3

    Fill cellophane bag with candy. Fold the bag's edge down once to close, and secure the label on both sides with double-sided tape.

    Nice idea, but what parent in their right mind would let their kid eat some home made candy bags obtained from trick or treating? Too many crazys out there.
