trick or treat!!

i bought these coloured pencil sets from wilkos, they have a kraft cardstock tube with a clear lid which doubles as the sharper, i thought they would be a fab gift for the kids ...i used some we are memory keepers Halloween 12x12" papers cut to size and simply glued around the tube to add some colour and decoration.
i made matching treat bags by putting toffee's into a clear plastic bag (used for packaging cards) and sealing them. i cut a piece of black cardstock to size and folded in half. i stapled the card bag to one half then glued them together to seal the bag inside. i added some paper, which i stamped with a Halloween greeting and icon. for this I used the stamp sets jack of all trades and wacky wishes from stampin' up! plus an archival ink pad in jet black.

i finished off by adding a ribbon around the top of the purple set, as i thought it would look nice for the girl it is going to, but i don't think it is needed... of course you could decorate yours however you liked.
hope you like my ideas for Halloween!!
