Default Halloween Treats

Besides bag toppers what are some other creative, quick and easy ways to present candy to trick or treators? Pictures are always nice as I am a visual learner.

Thx

I just made 30 little cardstock box/baskets and attached a handle with brads. I will fill these little treat containers with candy for the employees at our post office. I spoil them every Halloween and Christmas.

I found these online (and gasped out loud at the price!!!) and thought it would be easy to make your own belly band to go around a little treat like these candy corn bags.

I also loved the sample in the SU catty that uses a brown paper lunch sack to make a broom and assume you could have it hold candy if you left the bottom of the sack in one piece (it's on page 29 of the current/new catty). This is probably more work than anyone would want to do for all of the trick or treaters, but maybe it would work if you need a few special treats for kids' friends/neighbors.

Ouch... no kidding about the price $98 for 36 bags of candy corn (which most people, myself included, don't even like!)

I just broke down and bought a paper crimper and made some sour cream containers. Talk about easy and super cute! I bought a 125 piece bag of Hershey's candy's at BJ's and each mini candy fits inside of a sour cream container. I was hoping to fit two but one is fine. They are very quick to make and take much less time than a bag topper (at least for me they did).

Deb posted a really neat idea here, but I'm sure to make a few would be some work! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...heangelcompany

and last year TIC TAC containers were popular. You can get them at Costco or the dollar store. Here's a sample in my gallery which of course I found the idea elsewhere! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=33605

Default Jelly Jars

How about jelly jars filled with candy and decorating the lid. That's what I'm attempting for this Halloween. Because of the glass they will be meant for adults only. They can be given to co-workers, secret pals, secretary, teacher, doctor...etc.

We always have a whole pile of kids coming to the door for Halloween! I plan on getting the mini reese's peanut butter cups and stamping the images from batty for you, punching them out and then taping to the bottom. For my kids and their cousins I think I will make the coffin box, you can find the pattern in the templates, and putting candy in it for them.

Here are a few treat boxes of mine. The first was for Valentine's Day but you could easily change it to Halloween. I made them for halloween in a smaller version for my daughter's class but no photos. The second one is a tote box that I made for halloween for her class another year.

That is what I made last year! I got a template online somewhere. This is what mine looked like:

Another really quick idea is using glass baby food jars. All you need to do is wash them out and fill with candy. Then attach some ribbon around the lid and decorate the top of the lid with a circle of punched patterned paper. You could get more complex by using halloween rub ons on the glass or adding a tag to the ribbon saying happy halloween. I've used this idea to make birthday party favors using SU's Bugs and Kisses. I filled the jars with gummy worms, stamped the worm and punched it out with a circle punch, then added a tag stamped with cute as a bug. If I had a pic I would add it, but I don't.

I saw a similar thing in the catty pg. 112. I was going to make these with the batty for you set instead of Perfect Timing and use Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum and Use Basic Black as a filler with the candy.

The boo bag on Pg 30 gave me another idea. I made small boxes with Halloween Backgrounds stamped on it. I am going to fill up some bags and tie them off with ribbon and the eek tag form on of the tag set (can't remeber which one).

Those bat sour cream containers are very cute and clever.

I have made the containers that are crafted after folded paper cups. I did not take a picture bt I did get the idea from the gallery here.

These are great ideas. I'm going to have to try the coffin boxes soon. Has anyone sold them at fall craft fairs with any success?

Happy Stamping and Scrapping

Michael's (MS collection) carries a kit to make these witch broom sacks. I think they were 6.99. They came with everything to make the project including the sticks. I think each kit makes six treat sacks. Not too bad if you use a coupon.

Correction...the price is 9.99 and the kit does make 6 treat sacks.

I tackled the witches broom on my own. I did not want to pay the 9.99 for the kit. Instead I found smaller brown lunch sacks and a stick from my yard. Here is my attempt

I made a few of these treat pockets last year for Halloween for a few special friends. Flat candy bars, like Kit Kat or Hershey's, fit nicely. My nieces got Halloween pencils and a candy bar. My friends got a professional-grade nail file and a candy bar. Here's another sample.

You could also make these party favors with Halloween paper. They will hold a mini candy bar or other "bite-sized" Halloween candy like those mini packets of Skittles, or 5-6 Hershey's kisses. You have to scroll to the end of the tutorial to see the finished product.

I know for my nieces I've done hair scrunchies, barrettes, lip balm, little beaded bracelets on stretchy elastic, stuff like that.

For little boys??? I'd go through the aisle at Walmart that has the packages of "party favors" for kids. Yo-Yos, super bouncy balls, mini plastic dinosaurs, etc? (Depending on how old they are--have you seen those half-sized Sharpie markies? Those would be fun for older kids! You could buy the multi-pen sets and split them up. Give each kid a couple different colors.
