Ashley from Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night

Hello lovelies!
 I am excited for our guest today. She is a good bloggy friend of mine.
She is also no stranger to either being a guest here or being featured. Her blog is full of awesome refashions and crafts. Today our guest is Ashley from Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night. Ashley's blog is a must read. 
Today she is helping us make some Halloween goodie bags.

So let's get crafting!

Blog Meet Ashley

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley! I am the mommy behind the Mommy by day... Crafter by night blog. I am so excited that Danielle asked me to take part in her Halloween guest post series. 

I love Halloween! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and who doesn't love dressing up and eating candy all night long! I know I sure do! :) 

This Halloween season, I decided to put together a fun and easy gift to give the women I visit teach. So today I am going to share it with you.

This was super easy and inexpensive to put together.... Here is how I did it. 

To make the card, I created a printable and printed it on white card stock, cut around the edges of the frame and mounted it on black card stock. Then hole punched at the top so that I could tie it to the bag with ribbon. 

For the rest of the gift, I bought these little orange paper bags in the wrapping paper section of Walmart. They cost 29 cents per bag. What a steal! I cut about 2 1/2 inches off the top of the bag.
Next I filled the bag with candy.
 Then I folded the top of the bag over and punched holes so I could tie with ribbon.
After the holes were punched, I tied with ribbon and also added the little card.

That is it! Super easy and super cute:)

I am sharing the printable with all of you so you can take a cute and easy gift to the ladies you visit teach too:)

And if you just wanna take a gift to a neighbor instead of using it for visiting teaching, I also made one with a blank area at the bottom  for you to sign your name!

To print, right click on the image and save it to your computer. Then you are ready to print. 

Hope you enjoy!!!
