Easy Halloween Gift for Visiting Teaching

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

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 to put together.... Here is how I did it. 

To make the card, I created a printable and went to Kinkos and had it printed 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:)

{When I first made my printable, I used really dark orange for the frame but it printed almost red, so I lightened the orange so when you print it out it will look more Halloween-y}

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!

All I ask is that you follow my blog before printing...
Once you are a follower, right click on the image and save it to your computer. Then you are ready to print. 

Hope you enjoy!!!
