Halloween Goodies in Recycled Bags

Someone on Inspire Swap Chat posted a message about this neat video showing how you can recycle the baggies that all those wonderful scrapbook supplies come in like the little gem bags and the bags that hold stamp sets. I fell in love with the idea and at my next visit to Target I picked up some candy and set out to create my own masterpieces.

This year, for Halloween, the Hershey's miniatures are in black, orange, purple and green wrappers with ghosts, pumpkins and bats on them. They are perfect for a project like this. For some reason, my bag had a disproportionate amount of purple and green candies so I have been looking for ways to use just the one color.

I used Inkadinkado stamps, Stazon, and orange and black inks to finish these off. The really perfect thing about these treats is the package opens from the bottoms to the recipient doesn't have to rip open all my hard work.
