Chloe and I finally wrapped up the Halloween treat bags for her class party next week! WHEW! What a dilemma that was, trying to figure out what to use. In the end we decided on something really simple since the kids only RIP it open and toss the bags in the garbage! Oh well, the few hours of work it took to make all of these will be worth the smile on their faces when the see can candy! Sorry for the box picture but I was too lazy to pull them all back out.
