Thursday Thrills!!!

These are fun and easy to make for trick or treaters or for school parties.

To make the card:

Cut black cardstock to 3 3/4 x 2 3/4
Cut the white cardstock to 7 1/2 x 2 1/2. You will score the white at 1 inch from the bottom and then fold the rest of the white in half to create the other fold. Staple so you can tuck the white into the stapled part. (Be careful not to staple both pieces or it won't pull out). Glue the white cardstock to the black cardstock. Embellish with a favorite stamp set. Tape or glue a piece of candy to the inside of the white.

To make the treat bag:

Cut the blue/green cardstock to 4 1/4 x 4 (fold in half).
Cut the orange pattern paper to 3 3/4 x 1 3/4 ( you will need two of these).
Cut the black square to 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 ( you will need two so you can cover up the staple).

To assemble fold the blue/green cardstock in half over the filled treat bags, staple. Glue the orange pattern paper over the center of the cardstock on front and back. Then place the black square in the center. Embellish as desired. I stamped and cut out a pumpkin.

You can make these any size you want. Just measure your clear bag size and make sure your cardstock is a little longer.  Then adjust your measurements for your decorative pieces.  Embellish and enjoy!

Simple, fast, and fun. Your children will love helping you to make these for their friends.
