These cute little templates were downloaded from

    Love these! So crafty.

  4. SO cute! I love this idea, so much better than just handing out candy!

  5. Jill says:

    Kids just love getting their own personalized gifts and these little carriers are super creative. You can also fill them with pretzels, erasers, stickers, pencils, etc, and just a teeny tiny bit of candy. Mine aren’t as cute as this, but I do like making personalized bags to make the kids feel special.

    really cute boxes, my sons class had a party and at first we were asked to bring things in and then due to so many allergies we were told not to.

  19. Those are too cute! I like doing gifts in a jar, like cupcakes with all the dry ingredients layered and a card with recipe instructions!

    Love the presentation! I wonder if you will do something similar for Valentines Day.

  21. Viva says:

    These are adorable!! I’m going to have to try this for goody bags for my sons birthday party.

  24. Sheila says:

    Oooo! This is wonderful~! I’m so glad to see that other people were creative on Halloween. We made goodie bags filled with candy and little toys to hand out to the tricker treaters (although there weren’t that many this year).

  25. Doreen Riopel says:

    Very sweet!! 🙂 You are certainily crafty and patient.

    These are sooooo cute. You’re making miss the days when they still had the classroom parties. Ours are in middle / high school now.

    I am envious! I wish I still had the time to do those projects. We did a similar one for my daughter’s birthday, but as a purse. I put out lots of jewels, sequins, ribbons and bling for them to decorate how they wanted and that was their prize bag for all the games we played. I had to enlarge the pattern but it worked great!

  28. Debra B says:

    What a great idea and so creative too, I loved it when my kids were in school and a parent went through all the work and effort and did something like this, besides I think the kids preferred it too over mass produced store bought things, I know I would of loved to receive a gift like this that was made from the heart, & it really shows how much the parents care to be involved in their child’s school activities homemade gifts might take alot of work (& money) but its these kinds of gestures that help children feel secure & loved when they know their parents are making them a priority. It really is very thoughtful gift idea and thanks for the tips
