Halloween Treat Bag

Know someone who has a Birthday around Halloween? You could make your own gift bag for them like Cindy Coutts, Stampendous Blog Star, made…so incredibly cute! It would also be great for party favors or Trick or Treating (without the shredded crepe paper, of course, or your candy would spill out).
