Not Just Another Halloween Banner

The other day I came across some cool cellophane favor bags at the craft store that are shaped like pennant flags - they're called cello bags. Maybe because I have Halloween on the brain right now I thought it would be fun to make the bags look like candy corn by filling it with yellow, orange and white wrapped candy. I used the following candy : Butterfingers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and White Chocolate Mini Peanut Butter Cups.

Then I thought it would be cool to make a banner using the favor bags so that they could serve two purposes - take home treats and party decorations.

Here is the favor bag...



And here is the banner...



Super easy to make and kind of nice to look at too! Only 7 days until the big spooky day - I can't wait!!

I've never seen anything like that! It's so cool. I love how you combined take-home treats with a decoration. The kids will go crazy when they see that!
