Sweet Treat Witch and Frankenstein Tags...

Hello again!! This is Christine from Chrisy Lee . I am so thrilled to be posting again. This time I thought I would share a few of my own foam tag designs. These are very quick and inexpensive to make. All you need is a few sheets of your choice of color of foam boards, hot glue, black permanent marker, googly eyes, a printer, card stock and embellishments of your choice.

They really dress up a simple plate of cookies or Halloween treats!

For the witch tag, click on pattern image below to enlarge. Then right click to save to your computer. When printing out it should take up an entire 8.5 x 11-inch page. I have given you an 1-inch measuring square for correct sizing as well! Of course you can print out and make different sizes! Print out on card stock and use to cut out your foam pieces. Glue and decorate as desired!

**Yes....I AM aware that I spelled the word "witch's" wrong!! I was constantly being interrupted by my kiddos while making this pattern! ;0)

When your witch is complete glue a round tag on the back that says,

Any "WITCH" way you put it, you're a real treat!

Of course this little man is awesome too- I just love his bubblegum cheeks!!

For this pattern, follow the same steps as above. When you are done glue a tag
on the back that reads,

Have a "FRANKEN-TASTIC" Halloween!!!

Another cute saying would be,

Mystical, Magical, Fun or Frightful...
Hope Your Halloween Is Just Delightful!!!

These would also make a great addition as cupcake toppers...just glue picks to the base of the heads. I think I might use them as a fun gift tag to a bag full of Halloween Popcorn Balls...YUM!!!

For another option, here is my favorite Halloween cookie recipe...

Monster Mash Cookies

2 Cups Shortening - 2 Cups Brown Sugar - 1 Cup Sugar - 4 Eggs - 4 tsp Vanilla

Mix well and then add:

5 1/2 Cups Flour - 1 1/2 tsp Salt - 1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Mix well and add your own mixture of either large milk chocolate chips, nuts of your choice, Halloween colored baking M&Ms, peanut butter chips and vanilla chocolate chips! Basically just add whatever goodies you want to equal out to about 12 ounces! Roll into large balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 9-12 minutes.
