Halloween Trick or Treat Sweetie Bags

Halloween trick or Treat bags
I’ll be honest, there’s nothing really that new about this idea, they are just basic sweetie bags with a Nestabilities Label die cut topper but with a slightly different take on using jelly beans and a chance to use the new bubble stickers I’ve found  this year.
Halloween Treat Favour Bags
Both the stickers and jelly beans are from Poundworld.  There was a good variety of different sticker packs and I think I got one of each, some were scary and some were cute.
Halloween Favor Treat Bags Spiders Eggs
Wearing disposable plastic gloves I sorted the jelly beans into colours and then looked at the stickers to work out a theme for each colour ….. so the green ones became spiders eggs …..
Halloween Treat Favor Bag Bat Poop
……. the black ones became bat poop …
Halloween Treat Favor Bags Dracula Blood Capsules
…… the red, Dracula Blood Capsules .. and so on.

On the back of each topper I wrote “Dare you eat one?”

And as I had a few spare black beans I added one to some of the packets to give the (warped illusion) that one could have gone off!

With just a bit of imagination you can come up with all sorts of awful names!  From two bags of beans I made nine bags, which is pretty good going!

Heheheheh! These are just fantastic!! I think I'd have managed to make one or two bags as I'd have NEEDED to test the jelly beans.....!!

Hi Helen - How should we close the bags? I attempted with glue that didn't really work out well so I used small staples but wanted to avoid them. Any tips?

My apologies for not adding this to the post but whenever I use loose sweets in a project I use my electric bag sealer ..... this is just a quick post dating back a couple of years , when I used my sealer on quite a few projects

Perhaps if you don't have a sealer, just fold bag ends over and seal with double sided tape?
