I just love decorating for the season and making all kinds of treats for family and friends. I enjoy taking little treats to neighbors and having some extra on hand for those who just pop over. I ran across these spooky sweet treat bags created by the very talented Audrey Pettit using the fun dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz. I love the simplicity of these peek-a-boo packaging bags. They just give enough of a tease to let your friends know what kind of treat they will be getting.
These are not only so spooky cute but very quick and easy to make as well. The best thing about these is that Audrey gives you a full step-by-step tutorial so you can easily recreate them on your own. You will have so much fun creating with the watercolor backgrounds and using the fun Halloween dies. Let me take you on over to the Sizzix blog where once again you will be very inspired by Audrey. What a perfect way to package your treats or baked goods.
