washi tape + printable halloween party favors


Here's another simple and sweet Halloween party favor idea.  

The stores are all filled with festive little trinkets perfect for school parties {we're not to bring food treats}...but of course I like to find a way to make them a little bit cuter if I can.  

It's all about the presentation. ;)

Since I always have a good supply of washi tape on hand, as well as 3" x 4" glassine bags {found at the craft store...I used both together before here}...making these treats a little more personal was easy.  


And really, the possibilities are endless...fill those little bags with anything you like!

Download the printable here.

Then just trim cardstock to 4.25" x 5" {and adjust your printer tray!}, print, and you're good to go.

gifting: halloween party in a box

This post is sponsored by Dollar Tree.  All opinions are my own.  As always, thanks for reading! xoxo


I don't know about you, but Dollar Tree is {another!} one of those stores that I plan on going in for a few items and end up with a whole cart full of fun little things.

I heard that they were having an anniversary celebration and of course wanted to check it out...trick or treaters and school parties are coming...I have a major sweet tooth anyway...their bonus buys are even larger size packages...everything's only a dollar...sounds good to me.


So the plan was to go there and load up on the special anniversary bonus size bags of candy...


But {as these things always seem to happen to me! ha!} I wandered through the Halloween section and started thinking about what kinds of gifts I could put together with holiday goodies.

And as one thing led to another, I was loading up my cart.

Orange and black paper straws!
Crepe paper rolls!
Balloons!
Spider rings!
Creepy party favors!
It's only a dollar!

My self control is not so good.  Haha.

But seriously.  The stuff is cute.

And...everything's $1.  I can't say no.


So I got home and started putting together little mini parties in boxes.  {I sewed the crepe paper down the middle and cut it with fringe scissors like I did here...the cupcake toppers were from my stash.}

These are going to be so fun to gift!!

halloween party favors: perler beads + printable cards


It's still only September, but we're already going a little Halloween crazy over here.


Perler beads are one of our favorite crafty activities...so I thought it would be fun to make Halloween shapes and give them out to friends at our school parties.


You can download the printable cards here...you'll need to trim your card stock to 4.25" x 5"...and adjust your printer tray.


I used a dab of hot glue to attach our shapes to the cards...they would also be super cute glued to magnets or pins and then attached to the cards!


Happy Halloweening!
xoxo
