Add a tag and spider webbing to turn up the cute-but-creepy factor.



The spine-tingling suspense-filled fun part is you never know if you're going to get a Trick...



...or a Treat!

These creepy-cute Halloween party favor bags are so easy, it's hard to call this a tutorial. Simply download a treat bag template. I used this one on portrait mode. Cut your Halloween paper down to size. Score the lines on the bag template with a bone folder for crisp, easy folds, and glue together. It comes together quickly!

Add some distressed Stickles for a little bit of sparkle on the treat bag flaps, if you like. Clasp the bag closed with a clothespin Bony Finger.

The papers are so much fun! You can ink up tiny jewelry or garage sale tags to match your papers. Wrap it around the bony finger as a reminder to "Trick or Treat"...

...or bring on some fright: "Boo!" 

Of course, treat bags are not the only thing you can use these functional bony clothespin Skeleton Fingers for...



You can create a garland or banner featuring them, like this Scary Movie Garland.
