Anything Goes---A Krafty Girls Challenge

Happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for another great challenge starting today at

Challenge #15 is a Anything Goes challenge!

I decided to get a jump start on some of my Halloween projects for this challenge.
Every year, I send my daughter and her roommates a box filled with Halloween goodies to them at college.
They love getting the box in the mail and eating all the candy inside :)

I try to make a bunch of different types of bags/treat holders for them to open to reveal the candy that's inside.

I made this little bag by using one of the black lunch sacks from Michaels. I cut off the top of the bag a little and added a piece of black card stock to the top to act as the closure. It is held shut by a piece of velcro. I added some patterned paper to the front and back and just embellished it a little more. The kisses are not what is going to be in the bag, they were just for the purposes of the picture. If I bought Halloween candy now, there is no way it would last until then haha! I would eat it all up :) 

Here is a view from the side so that you can see the lunch sack:
