Halloween is creeping up on us! Today we are sharing 3 fun treat bag ideas perfect for all ghouls and goblins!!

Treat Sack designed by Susan Tidwell

Let's start with this the little Halloween Tags- apply Black Diamond Stickles to title on tag, add glitter star stickers and ink edge with black ink. Set aside to dry. Tear a piece of cheesecloth and add to bag with very little Mod Podge to create fun texture!

Now sponge white paint over a spider web “fragment” stencil on black cardstock.
When dry, cut around outer edge and glue in place over cheesecloth. Make a button spider by stacking and glueing together two black shiny buttons and add 2 tiny googly eyes.
Cut eight pieces of black wire about 1 1/2” long and curl one end with pliers.
Glue in place under buttons. Glue spider to center of web.
Once you add treats to the little sack, fold over top, punch two holes and tie ribbon into one knot. Lay a strip of cheesecloth over knot and then tie ribbon into a bow.
Fluff and shred cheesecloth into a “bow.” 
Add decorated tag.

Boo! to You Shaker Treat Bag 

Boo Shaker Treat Bag designed by Natalie Sheeran
Cut apart ghost of the "boo to you" journal card from the Pebbles- Boo! collection and trim the top ends off to make it look like a tag. Adhere scrap piece of acetate to bag of "Boo to You" journal tag.
Place pop dots around the ghost cut, use the pop dots to secure the  "shaker" area, sprinkle glitter or sequins then close the opening with more pop dots.
Adhere treat bag to Boo tag. Glue 2 goggly eyes on top of the acetate to give some character to your ghost!

Fall Cloth Bag designed by Valerie Bishop
For the cloth goodie bag I first watercolored it using my cake watercolors.
I got the colors really juicy with water and using a thick watercolor brush I made stripes across the dry bag alternating yellow, orange and brown letting the colors run together at their edges. After letting the bag dry I stamped some leaves (using a set of the Illustrated Faith stamps) I used Brown and yellow Stazon inks making sure to stamp really hard to insure that the image would stamp clearly.

 I had a piece of wood in my stash  that  I thought really went well with a fall theme and I stamped a sentiment on it (using a set from Elle's Studio) then glued it to the bag using Glossy Accents. I inserted a piece of plastic into the bag to prevent the bag from sticking together while the glue dried.
