Trick Or Treat

We have been preparing here for our famous church Halloween party. This year instead of buying bags and bags of candy, I opted to make simple little boxes for only so many kids. We never have too many at our Trunk Or Treat and I usually have guilt for dumping so much candy on the kids. 

Inside we have ONE mini candy bar and a bouncy eye ball. very Halloweenish. I picked up the tutorial off of Lisa's Blog Craft Store Junkie. She has really great tutorials and wonderful pictures, so head on over to check it out. The specific tutorial is HERE.   I love it because it can be fashioned for ANY occasion. I chose to use up some old Halloween scrapbook paper I had laying around. You know, I'm trying the "use it up"  instead of "throw it out" method. This is just the project for that.

Up close you can see that I used my Simple Alphabet to spell out Trick Or Treat since I have zero Halloween stamps. I used the Tiled Scalloped Backgrounder too add some interest to my plain cardstock.

These literally took me an hour to put together. SO easy and fast. I'm glad I can give out something homemade and from the heart, I just wish I wouldn't have eaten the rest of the candy bars from the bag. Such a bad habit of mine. I even tried to wait until the last days of the month before purchasing candy to avoid this problem. Looks like I need more self control ; )

I guess I'll save OUR bouncy eyeball balls for chucking at the kids....as a little obstacle to getting our non-wrapped up treats!
