Halloween Candy Holders

Hi everyone...Kerry here! I am back with another Whimsie Doodle design team post for you today. I was trying to think of something fun and new to do this year to give out a Halloween treat to friends or classmates. Here is what I came up with:

These are made using the adorable Halloween Hootenannies Gift Tag set. Cute, right? Love the adorable creatures that are available in this set! You can also buy them as just images without the gift tag label, if you prefer.

If you're not a huge fan of coloring images, you can easily paper piece these. I printed these images out on a few different colors of cardstock and simply paper pieced them together. It's a great way to get a professional look, without having to color a whole bunch.

 The fun thing about these is that the candy on the back forms a mini "stand" so that the treats can sit nicely on a table as a favor, too. Oh, and if you're wondering what type of candy fits back there - it's a fun size Twix bar. Here's a view of the back. I'm sure you could also fit other types, like Kit Kat, Hershey, etc.

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope this inspires you to make some Halloween goodies. My brain is already thinking of how these could easily be adapted for Valentine's Day...and other Holidays, too. Hmmm... ;)
