Halloween Trick Or Treat Bags …..

Well my cellophane bags have arrived and so there was no excuse not to get my Halloween Trick or Treat Bags made ….. all paid for with my Bonus Ball Lottery win at work.

First I made all the tags, 40 in all, using scraps of orange, green and purple card for the tags and other scraps for the decoration ….

All the tags are slightly different and it became more and more interesting as the adhesive strips began to run out as well as the “best” stickers!

Once all the tags were made it was time to put the sweets into the bags without being tempted to just pop just one or two into my mouth ….. quality control, obviously.  With 80 chocolates in each tub of Celebrations or Heroes …. I was able to fill 10 bags ….
