Halloween Favor

We want to thank everyone who participated in our last challenge at "My Grafico." We hoped you had fun with the outdoor challenge.  The winners of this challenge will be posted on the My Grafico Blog HERE. For the next two weeks our challenge will be Halloween. This is such a  great challenge and it is early so you really can use your cards and/or projects for Halloween!!
The Design Team was presented with the following images to use in our crafting.

Each one of them are darling. It was a difficult decision which to choose. I hope to have time to use several of them in the near future. I will be sure to post them when my projects are complete. If you don't want to miss any inspiration, you might want to become a follower:)

This is a diminutive, charming, little favor. Perfect for a Halloween party.  I plan on making several for little "thinking of you" treats for a few adult friends.
  This treat box is also a template available at My Grafico.

 I chose not to color the image because I wanted to highlight the details in this tag. I did trace the 31 with a glitter gel pen to add some sparkle. I also added a silver stripe with a silver foil pen.
The M&M's were added in the treat bag then secured with baker's twine. I chose to use a non traditional Halloween color but this DP does have spiders on it. If I could find candy spiders, that would be a perfect treat!! The template I chose is so easy to use. This project was quite simple and easy to complete in just a few minutes. It would not be difficult to make several.
