I ordered the Cute Halloween Designer Paper even though I am not very motivated for Halloween. It seems that we  haven’t had many children visit on Halloween. Course the year 2020 cannot be considered the norm. But any way I am never prepared and struggle with what treats to offer. Because when we were young “trick or treating” was fun. We did not  ring the doorbell and request nut free or gluten free treats.

So while I realize these are real allergies, I am sure no adult would intentionally offer treats that would make or hurt the children. But it does pose a problem of what should be offered to the children. Now I decided to go for it and create different ways to dress up treats for the children.

So for the next few weeks on Thursday Share Time (Live), I will share some ideas. If you interested join me at Rita’s Paper Motif .com on Facebook on Thursdays at 7:00 PM. You can also see pictures at Rita’s Paper Motif on Instagram.

I just shared idea #1. These are toppers for the treat bags. I like to fill my bags with:

  • Skittles-they are supposed to be nut free.
  • 3 crayons and a miniature coloring book
  • Candy for the older ones.
  • a few party favors found at the party store.
  • You could also fill with a packaged cookies and or a package of apple sider. (Available at Dollar Store.)

Now the bags I use can be purchased at the Dollar stor. There are 40 (I think) in the bag for a dollar. They are nice because the seal up at top like a baggie.

Then I with my trimmer cut card stock into 4×5 rectangles. You can cut how ever many you wish in the color you choose. I suggest Basic Black, Highland Heather, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, or Basic White. I used for sharing with you the Basic black and Basic White.


I used the “Little Delights” Stamp Set. I used the “Trick or Treat” sentiment. On some of the bag toppers I used the bats stamp.  This stamp set can be found on page 59 of the mini catalog (item #156527) for $16.00.

Of course I used the “Cute Halloween” designer paper on page 74 of mini catalog 156479 for $11.50. To see a review visit Rita’s Paper Motif on Facebook.

I also used some stickers out of my stash.

Here’s what mine looked like.

You could definitely  re-create these ideas and make your own design. You could use them for classroom treats in your child’s classroom. You could make some for your children or whomever you choose.            Because this idea is so simple there is no PDF available.
