As seen on the Paper Whimsy Inspire Blog:
Isn’t Halloween all about the candy? As a child, we would go all through our neighborhood for several hours collecting goodies. I can remember coming home after Trick or Treating and dumping our loot out on the living room floor. We would group our candy into piles by brand or my least favorite. My Mom always wanted the “Mary Jane’s” and today those are hard to find.
These little treat bags are sure to please the ghouls and goblins in your life. Or fill them with goodies to take to co-workers.
