First Family Friday Project

Hello everyone!! I am so glad it is Friday, this will be my first post as a Family Friday DT Member, I am so excited! I have had a super busy week and next week isn’t looking any less busy, I hope after next week things will go back to normal and I will be able to create some cards! I am also entering these into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge and Cooking with Cricut #3 challenge!

This week ( yes it took me almost the whole week) I made treat bags for 3 of my kiddo’s classes , 64 total, which took five, 3lb bags of candy to fill them! To top it off they wanted to have different types of bags so I made 3 different sets ( exhausting I know). Good thing is they came out great I love them all!

These are for my son Phillip’s class, I had wanted to try the sour cream containers and they were  so easy! He requested monsters on his….


These are for my Baby girl Vanessa’s Class, she said to make the ghosts with funny faces so her friends wont be scared….


This last set is for my older daughter’s 5th grade class..she wanted something “for big kids”. I designed these pillow boxes on my gypsy after seeing them at Walmart in a kit.


Materials used:

  • Mini Monsters Cartridge
  • Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge
  • Gypsy wanderings ( for tags)
  • PK-550 Pumpkin Faces
  • PK-693 Monster Mash face assortment
  • Spooktacular Paper Stack
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • White, Black, Purple, Red Jelly roll pen
  • orange small paper sacks
  • Black 12x12 paper
  • Sentiments from my favorite My Pink Stamper’s Spooky Puns set

I know this was a super long post, sorry. Well hope you like my treat bags, I know it got the Halloween out of me til next year lol!! Thanks for stopping by, Have a good weekend!

Lots of Cricut love,
