Halloween Goodie Bags for Preschoolers and Teachers :)

Hello.  I saw these adorably decorated crayon boxes over on a My Creative Time designer's (Cathryn) blog back in July and immediately bought the stamp set with the intentions of doing this (a similar version of it) for my daughter's preschool class.  Then a couple of weeks ago I was in Target and saw cute little Halloween notepads in the $1 section (6 in a pack) so I bought those also.  I decided this week to put them in with the crayons to make a goodie bags...of course that meant I needed toppers.  I also decided to make some goodie bags for her two teachers using an idea I had seen around on Pinterest and other sites. 

Here are the bags for the kids:  For the crayons I used the My Creative Time all around Halloween set, some plain paper from AC Moore and some patterned paper from K&Co.  For the bag toppers I used Art Philosophy to cut the square in 2 sizes, then I scored it in the middle.  On the top layer I added stitching via gelly roll pens, either a ghost from Paper Doll Dress-up or a pumpkin from Create a Critter.  Of course they needed a cute little Peachy Keen face :)  I printed the names all one piece of card stock on the computer then cut out using the center point feature and one of the cute tags on Art Philosphy.  I then used the Happy Halloween sentiment from my Pink by Design Guess Who set to add the sentiment.  Lastly, I used the bonus stamp that came with Septembers new order stamps from My Creative Time on the back of the bags :)


Here are the bags for the teachers:  I used the same process for the bag toppers as above but I printed the sentiment on orange paper first, then cut the square using Art Philosophy.  I then cut the ghosts from Paper Doll Dress-up and used some cute Peachy Keen faces on them.   I plan to make some of these for my office staff as well this weekend for Monday.

I hope the kids and teachers enjoy their goodie bags!  TFL!
