Make your monster bash a graveyard smash, Robert’s Craft has ideas to help
you set the stage for a eerily good time.
Brett Lund from Robert’s Crafts shows how to make a wide assortment of
Halloween Party Favors.
Assorted Halloween paper. I used product from the following companies: My

Black & Orange cardstock
Martha Stewart drippy goo punch
Clear cellophane bags
Bakers Twine from Doodlebug Designs
Paper DVD sleeves
Black and Orange Staz On ink
Plastic test tubes (I purchased them here http://www.sks-bottle.com/)
Storybook Cricut Cartridge

3. Glue the strip around the bag of microwave popcorn.
4. Embellish with buttons on the front.
Large Cookie Envelopes
1. Take assorted stamps and ink them up with the black or orange Staz
2. Stamp all over the DVD covers.
3. Let dry then insert a large cookie inside them.
4. Seal the back of the envelope with a piece of tape.
Muffin Liner goodie bags
1. Cut out the number 13 on your Cricut machine.
2. Cut out a 3″ circle on the Cricut.
3. Take a muffin liner and fold it in half. Using pinking scissors trim about
1″ off the muffin liner.

5. Scrunch up the smaller muffin liner. Glue the 13 on top of it.
6. Glue the smaller muffin liner to the larger muffin liner.

Halloween test tube favors.
1. Fill the test tubes with Halloween candy.
2. You may decorate the test tube and wrap something around the test
tube itself, or you can design a holder to place them in. (The exact test tube
holder file I created on the Gypsy machine)
Drippy Goo treat bags
1. Take a cellophane bag and fill it with candy. (Remember if you are
giving this out to trick or treaters, make sure the candy is wrapped)
2. Measure the width of your bag and add 1″ to the width. This will the
width of the paper label.

4. Using the Drippy Goo punch, punch the edge of your label.
5. Fold your label in half.
6. Using double stick tape, adhere the label to your cellophane bag.
I found this project very easy to make a large amount of bags in a small
amount of time.
1. For the pieces of paper that “Happy Halloween” letters are glued onto,
you will cut the shape out of the Storybook Cricut cartridge. The outside mat
is cut at width 5.50″ height 4.04″. The inside mat is cut at the same. I just
used different parts of the cut image.
2. The letters are cut out of the Storybook cartridge they are cut at 4″.
3. The pumpkins are from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge they are cut at
4. Glue everything together and string together with ribbon.
