I'm a fan of making things that are reusable, so I made a basic fabric bag and then decorated it by creating this cute owl bag from fabric. I fully expect it to be returned for refills!
Tip: You could easily, and quickly, recreate it using patterned papers and a paper sack in lieu of fabric.

They’re also a great treat to fill these pillow boxes. The puffed boxes measure 3” wide by 6” high and are perfect for small treats, party favors or even gift cards.

The Rectangle Hand Punch and Medium Round ‘n Round Squeeze Punch work nicely in making that toothless grin on Jack’s face. I adhered Jack to a 2.5” circle cut with the Ultra ShapeXpress Tool and Circle Shape Template from white cardstock and then inked the edges. I placed this on top of a rectangle cut from purple paper and then used the new Romantique 3-in-1 Corner Punch on all four corners. I again inked the edges and turned them up slightly before adhering this to the box’s front. Now it’s ready to fill with whatever Tricks or Treats you please! Whatever you decide, the recipient is sure to enjoy!

The scallop blade in my desktop rotary trimmer made quick work of 1" strips that I cut in half and scored a ¼" tab on each end. I added two Glue Dots on each tab and attached one end to the cup rim and the other end to the bottom lip, working my way around the entire cup.
The large Nice Tri Squeeze Punch paired with the ¼" Circle Hand Punch made perfect jack-o-lantern eyes. The mouth was just as easily formed by punching out half of an XL Oval 'n Oval Again Squeeze Punch with a few teeth created with the Rectangle Hand Punch. To complete the project, use an Ultra ShapeXpress to cut a stem and swirl using the Rectangles and Shapes templates. Run the stem through the Crimper for a bit of texture and attach both to the inside of the cup using Glue Dots.

I eat bags of these every season. And I'm always wanting to take them with me, but these sugary sweet candies will get soft and smush very easily. To be able to have my treats tagging along everywhere I go, I put together this little pumpkin pouch to carry in my purse.
Easily sewn with the help of my Fiskars sewing tools, this little sack will fit nicely inside your purse. Start by using Fiskars Circle Templates to trace four circles onto fabric. Trim them out with Fiskars No. 8 Scissors. Add a cute little embellishment on the front with the help of a punched heart from Fiskars That's Amore XL squeeze punch. I traced it onto fabric, then cut out and stitched. Sew the pouch together and add a little flap with velcro to help keep it closed. A little stem was cut out of fabric using Fiskars Pinking Fabric Shears and stitched on. The result will be a pumpkin pouch almost cute enough to eat! Enjoy!

Simply, use the Fiskars Extra Large Round n Round Squeeze Punch on a piece of heavy cardstock. Then take a 1.5 inch wide strip of chipboard and create a *tube* for the sides of the cup. Use wet adhesive to adhere and then use a bulldog clip to clamp it in shape until the glue dries. When the glue is dry, glue the tube shape to the circle bottom and set it aside to dry. Then, take crepe paper (I used the new Melissa Frances Crepe Paper Sheets) and cut a long strip about 3 inches wide with the Fiskars Pinking Sheers. Take wet adhesive and lay a fairly thick line down along the bottom of your cup, then start adding the crepe paper strip, pleating and bunching slightly as you lay it on the adhesive. Let it dry in place and then fan the top of the paper that overlaps the cup shape.
Take a 3/4 inch strip of cardstock and use the Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch along the long side. Measure and cut to size to fit around cup, then adhere. Use a typewriter or handwrite "happy halloween" on vintage ledger paper or cardstock and adhere to cup right below and overlapping scallop strip. To finish, take a pipecleaner and add a dollop of wet adhesive to each end and stick between layers of papers/chipboard to create a handle. Tie a bit of ribbon around handle and it's ready to go. My favorite Halloween treat is popcorn mixed with Reese's Pieces and M & Ms. I think that if I have time before Halloween, i will make a tray full of these, only a miniature version. I'll just use the Fiskars Medium Round n Round Squeeze Punch for my base and then adjust sizing the rest accordingly. Wouldn't a mini version be sweet?
