Halloween will be here before we know it. I can hardly believe it. It seems like 2016 just started. It seems like time just keeps moving faster and faster, doesn’t it? The last couple of weeks my kids have been excitedly talking about what they want to be for Halloween. My 13 year old even wants to make his own costume. (I think it might be because he thinks I’m too busy and he really wants to be what he has in mind. He wanted to be the same thing last year, and I was sick and pregnant so I couldn’t make the costume.) I am excited to help him make his costume though. I hope we can pull it together, plus come up with the other four costumes we need around here. Anyway, I’m not here to talk about costumes today, I wanted to show you these fun and colorful Halloween Treat Cards. I made these + the suckers last year and shared it over on the Pebbles blog. Today, I’m sharing them with you!

To make your own Halloween Treat Cards you’ll need:
- Colored Cardstock
- Halloween Patterned Paper
- Black Ink Pad
- Glow in the Dark Thickers
- Glue Dots
- Dimensional Adhesive
- Small Treat Bags
- Baker’s Twine
- Pebbles Boo! Minc Labels
- Orange Reactive Foil
- Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Applicator
I started with some bright colored cardstock for the card bases. I cut them to the size I wanted and then folded them in half, creating the card.
I cut the patterned papers that I wanted to use on the front of the card, and got it ready to be inked on the edges.
I inked the edges of the patterned pieces of paper.
I attached the larger piece of patterned paper to the card base. On the smaller piece, I placed Glow-in-the-Dark Thickers, spelling the word BOO!
Using dimensional adhesive, I put it on the back of the BOO! piece.
I mounted the smaller piece of patterned paper onto the card where I wanted it.
I placed a sucker in the treat bag and tied it shut with some black baker’s twine. Then, using a glue dot, I attached it to the card. That finishes up the first card.
For the second card, I used the Rotten Sweets label and put it through the Minc Foil Applicator with orange foil. Then I cut the patterned papers to be the size I needed.
I inked the edges of the patterned papers and mounted on my card as shown.
Using dimensional adhesive, I placed some on the back of the Rotten Sweets label.
Then I mounted it on the front of the card.
I attached a sucker to the front of the card using glue dots, after I had wrapped it in a mini treat bag and tied it up with twine.
These cards really were very simple to make, and they can be given to any friend too. Who wouldn’t want to receive a fun little treat for Halloween?!
