Decorate to Celebrate Design Team Challenge "Halloween Part 1"...All Eyes on You Candy Bags

WARNING:  This craft project could lead to weight gain and paranoia :)

     I saw a project like this in Family Fun Magazine and had to give it a try.  And anything related to Hershey's kisses is right up my alley.  "All Eyes On You Candy Bags" are a fun and easy idea guaranteed to make your little trick or treaters happy and can also double as a fun candy bowl idea for Halloween parties.

Supplies:  Hershey Kisses;sandwich bags;Halloween paper;googly eyes;scissors;twine

     I loved the glow in the dark googly eyes I found...this package has assorted sizes which makes your project more interesting.  Begin by gluing the eyes on to the bottom of your kisses.  HINT:  use mismatched sizes on some of them gives them a little different personality.  Once you are finished, you will have the distinct feeling of being watched!

    Take your sandwich bags and create a topper out of the Halloween paper.  Measure about 1/2 of the length of the bag so you have enough room to fold in half as your bag closure.

Using decorative scissors add a nice touch
      Using your new template, take plain paper and cut out a piece half the size of your decorative paper.

    Using a plain or contrasting paper, handwrite your eye puns.  I don't have the best handwriting in the world, so I line up a ruler.  HINT:  make sure you are leaving room for your googly eyes to take the place of the letters.  You can also use your computer to print out phrases or rub on alphabet transfers.

    Glue your two pieces together, fill up your bag with the candy. Fold over the paper and punch a hole through to close it off with twine or ribbon.

    The decorated kisses also make cute bowl candies for your Halloween parties.  And since your candy remains completely wrapped up, it will be still safe to eat!  And to be super thrifty you can keep the eyes from the wrappers for some other projects.

    Here are some other fun ideas for your labels.

  Have fun and remember......
