After a search came up blank I figured I would ask. Does anyone have a good idea on how make a cool looking candy bag out of the paper lunch sacks. I would like to hand the kiddies a candy bag with goodies inside this year. Any ideas would be great. I would like it to be simple enough to have my children make them so that they get to help create things. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Hallow and here's another idea:

You can use food service gloves that can be turned into zombie or witch hands. Put a piece of candy corn in the end of each finger for the nail - then fill with popcorn and twist at the wrist with a ribbon or yarn and a spooky sticker or cut out. You can tint the popcorn green with food coloring too. The gloves are sold in boxes with 500 - so they are really cheap bags. Experiment too with fillings.
BOO!

Martha Stewart last year had a witch's broom, I think it was double bagged, the outside bag being sliced in long strips to look like the brush part of the broom. A small branch shpved inside and tie the bag around it tight...

I know you've already made them, seeing as this thread is a year old, but if anyone else wanted any ideas last year I bought plain white 'goodie bags' and splattered a little red paint on them to look like blood. Kinda Dexter looking. People seemed to like them a lot, and they're extremely easy, although fairly messy. Then I just put candy and goodies in them and stapled 'em shut!
