monster party favor bags
Even though I’m oddly horrible at wrapping presents (no, really, just horrible), I’m still a believer in the power of packaging. So I was happy to try out some sample packaging when Michelle of the etsy shop It’s in the Bag contacted me. I love the concept of taking a plain, simple favor bag and dressing it up. Michelle clearly has scrapbooking skills I’m seriously lacking (check out her blog HERE). So with my sample bags, I stuck with something simple to match my simple cutting and gluing skills to make some monster party favor bags for a monster party or Halloween party.

I’m no stranger to monsters on this blog. I’ve made monster lollipops, monster Oreos, cute fuzzy monster chocolate pops. These monster cookie sticks are one of my most popular posts. I love these simple googly eyed monster cookies. Or these monster cookies, for example. I’m also inspired by these awesome monster brownies from Amanda.

I used the goblin monsters on the bags with the windows. You know, like they were trying to get the candy? I hope that was obvious. Mix and match the eyes and noses and mouths as you wish. You can also use the cut outs to wrap mini candy bars. I cut a strip of construction paper, glued it around a mini candy bar, and glued the faces on.
