Hello friends! It's been longer than I would like to be poppin' in, but sometimes that is just the way it is! Know what I mean? We are enjoying the "things" that make up our fun days..and I'm doing my best to not let the days move so quickly, but I'm not doing well on that front!

We've had some Halloween fun already this week, and my kids just can't wait for tomorrow night! We really love the trick or treating bit of Halloween...and it's super fun that we get to go to daddy's office to do most of our treating! I'm super thankful that my kids love going to my husband's office so much, going down hallways is a much better option that tromping around in the rain!!

So, I needed a few sweet treats for the fun friends in our neighborhood. I have a distinct memory that my mom always has "special" treats for our good friends, etc. SO, I wanted to make a cute little something that was fast and easy!

I found myself over at Damask Love today, and spied these fun candy corn tags! She shows a super fast way to make several and I thought they would be perfect with my little black and white chevron bags! I think my little neighbors will really enjoy these! I just put a couple giant tootsie rolls (yum) into each bag, folded the top over and tied it up with twine!

I made about 12 of these little packages in about 15 minutes, so they will be considered in the "fast treat" for me! I used PTI cardstock and the "enjoy" is from the enjoy the ride stamp set, also PTI.

Now, off to make a little big bigger tag for the school teachers....I'm sending them a yummy popcorn treat tomorrow! The recipe is here, and is another fast and easy and OH, so tasty!!

I hope you all have a great one! Thanks a bundle for stopping by!!

Great treat bags. I thought those tags were so cute too!
My mom also had "special" treats for the neighborhood kids. I do the same.
