So today, I thought it would be fun to make a few quick and easy Halloween treat bag projects.

    cards made with Mini Halloween Things Thinlits diesby Richelle Naegle I'm sure you have seen my posts for the New Tim Holtz Halloween Dies. 2017 Sizzix Halloween Dies is a great year for Halloween Dies!! Oh my, these are all so amazing!  Okay, so I finally got my hands on a couple of them, because they are literally flying off the shelves.
