Halloween Treat Bags

Hello everyone! I made these fun treat bags for several challenges....and to give to my son! I think these are called bag covers or bag genie's.  I cut a 4.25 X 8.5 inch piece of cardstock for the cover. I scored it at 4.25, 5.25, and 10. I fold on all the score lines and on the 1 inch side I stapled it in the center after it's folded over. It reminds me of a match book cover. The mice were cut from Happy Hauntings and all the stamped sentiments are from My Craft Spot's Happy Haunting set. I added suckers to one of them by simply taping them under the top flap with scotch tape. The eyeball's are in a clear sack that I stapled in to the 1 inch flap.
I am going to enter these into the following challenges:
1. Getting Cricky's Simple Sunday Challenge-  Halloween Treat Holders
2. More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday- Treat Bags or Boxes
3. My Craft Spots Monday Challenge- Color challenge, Use Black with Orange, Purple, or Green
Whimsical Wednesday's challenge this week is also Halloween Treat Containers! If you hop on over there you can see what the amazing DT put together this week! This challenge is open until Oct. 26. I hope you all are having a great day and thanks for looking!

Wonderful candy treat containers. Just finished making some of the Candy Corn boxes that Jessica of Chick-n-Scrap has a tutorial for. Saw the Spider Plastic Plate creations that are so cool posted on the challenge site. Saw your treat bags. Going to try to make the treat bags also.
