Hello and Happy Friday crafty friends! It’s Aly with you today closing off our Halloween Treat Container Week with a fun and easy idea for making Googly Eye Treat Pockets with the Circle Spin & Trim and the Journal Guide.
These DIY Halloween Party Favors are perfect for handing out to trick or treaters, for a class party, or for teachers, friends, and neighbors.
You can even include them as part of a Googly Eye Halloween Party! Googly eyes are easy to find in crafts stores, but why not make your own? They’re cheaper that way, and you can totally customize them to fit your project.
To make these Halloween Party Favors, start by trimming black solid or semi-patterned paper to 4×6 inches. I used plain black Bazzill Cardstock and some black and white papers from the DCWV Okey Dokey 12×12 Stack. Then follow the Journal Guide instructions to make a photo pocket. Tip: be sure to use strong adhesive to hold your pocket securely together.
Next, cut several 1-2 inch circles using the Circle Spin & Trim from solid white cardstock. If you’re throwing a Googly Eye Party, cut some larger white circle for bigger eyes.
To make your Googly Eyes, add black enamel dots or small paper circles to the center of the white circles. Vary the placement of the black circles to make the eyes appear to be looking different directions.
Tie the tag around the top of the treat pockets with black twine. You can add a little adhesive to hold them in place if you’d like.
Once your treat pockets are ready, slide in a small individually wrapped piece of candy or chocolate, and watch your recipients smile when you hand them out!
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a happy and crafty weekend, and we’ll see you back here next week.
