This Witch Knows Her Broomstick!

Do you have a lot of scraps that you just can't quite throw away?  Here's a cute and simple way to use them by adding them to a gift tag.  

Every year, my kids and I like to make fun treat bags for our cousins and special friends that come to trick or treat.  This year was no exception, thanks to pinterest.  Using two small (3x4 inch) brown paper bags I created these fun broomstick gift bags.  
 All you need is-
     *2 small brown paper bags
     *a stick
     *Raffia or Hemp
     *Your favorite Halloween paper (I chose CTMH Moonlight paper.)
Cut small 1/4 inch strips vertically on one of your paper bags.  Do not cut all the way to the top of the bag.  I left about 1 inch.  Place the 2nd bag inside the cut bag and open up.  Arrange the strips how you would like.  Fill with treats and the stick and then tie shut.
Don't they turn out super cute?
These little brooms would have been cute alone, but by adding a layer of scalloped circles, a stamped image and some different length flag strips, it adds some color and just finishes off these little treat bags.

I love how these turned out and can't wait to try to layering with other gift tags.

This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to create anything "Halloweenie."  Although super easy and not too elaborate, I think these little gift bags are a perfect entry.  Make sure to check out all the other creations here.
