Treats To Go

I am a total sucker for the cute seasonal coffee to-go cups at Target.  I’m sure other stores have them, as well, but Target is so considerate that they put them on an end cap across from the milk! So that’s where I see them and they jump into my shopping basket. These treats were made using last year’s cups, but I saw some the other day that were just as cute. And, yes, I saw them as I was putting them away in my cabinet. Why do you ask?

How cute is this little teacher/neighbor/bus driver/whoever gift?  Inside, you’ll find a bag of Halloween party mix (candy corn, peanuts, popcorn, cereal) and a packet of hot cider mix.  And how thoughtful will people think you are when you give them this little pick-me-up?

The hooligans made the bats for the top from a kit from…yes, Target!

The tags I stamped using my all-time favorite Halloween set, Twick or Tweet, from a Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog from a couple of years ago.  The middle kid thought of using a scallop punch to take a “bite” out of the tag.  He’s a little crafter-in-training. Heck, who am I kidding…they all are!

We attached the bats with double-stick tape and the tags have bakers’ twine that’s caught under the lip of the lid.

These took very little time to whip up, and brought a smile to their recipients’ face (I know, ‘cause I spied!).
