Some Halloween Treats

I just finished making over 30 Halloween treat bags for my preschoolers and wanted to share a quick picture of the tags I made for the bags. (If I didn't have to make so many, I would consider making the treat boxes, but goodness... that's a lot of treat boxes!)  I'm also sharing a picture of a really 'sweet' treat we made at our last team meeting.  I am making several of these for our trick or treaters and some close friends. Both of these projects were pretty simple, which is wonderful when you have a lot to make!  I also noticed that the challenges at Simply Stampin Challenge and Top Tip Tuesday were Halloween and Trick or Treat.  My creations fit both categories!!  So I also get to play along with a few challenge sites too!!
 Top Tip Tues was also asking for tips (who would have thought?!) and I thought I would share a tip that saves time.  When I already have my supplies out and my mojo is working, I usually create a few extra images or embellishments to use on a future project.  I made a few extra scallop tags to use on my kid's scrapbook pages.

Recipe for treat tags: Cardstock-rich razzleberry, the white is not SU (old stash) and I could tell a huge difference when I stamped my images..., Ink-Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Stamp Set-Batty for You

Recipe for Mummy: Hershey bar, Basic black cardstock (to glue the wiggle eyes on), wiggle eyes, white crepe paper
