Trick & Treat Halloween Bag Swap

Post by kt_dragonfly on Wed 3 Sep 2008 - 19:34

Ok so I ran this idea past Lorraine before we moved and she said it was all ok! Mr Green

So the idea of the swap is, you make 2 small bags (kinda like the little gift bags you can get with peoples names on so no bigger than 4/5" or ATC sized) and you decorate one treat bag & one trick bag!

Then inside you can put a trick & treat of your choice.

Post them to me where I will then jiggy them all around so you receive one trick & treat bag from 2 different people!

It's entirely up to you how you make your bag & what you put into them!
However I do ask that you just pop me a little note saying what your bags contains (i.e. if Lou joins and you fill a trick bag with glitter then I'll know to def. send it to her Laughing or if Maria joins I know to avoid anything halloweeny with a spider on it!).

I'm giving a pretty long sign up / send by date so hopefully to entice more of you to join Mr Green

Sign Up: 30th Sep
Send By: 25th Oct
All going well, I will then get them back to you for halloween Mr Green

Joining in the Halloween Fun:

Steph - AWOL Sad

Come on Lou - don't think of it as Halloween, but a challenge.

Are the items trick or treat supposed to be bought or made, i.e. is there a price limit/suggestion. Thinking about this one as I don't do halloween either, well not the kids running around the streets kind of thing, BUT this would be just a bit of fun

It's really up to you what you decided to do! If you do buy something I'd say only make it something cheap i.e. trick: packet of gummy eyes or some plastic spiders or something silly like that.

I wouldn't expect anyone to spend 's, more pennies Very Happy

So am I adding ya Mr Green

Started off my first bag last night, using the template I posted, i've done it 2.5" by 3.5" then the smaller pieces at 1"! Goes together quite nicely, especially if you cut the corners off the flappy bits at the bottom!
