Halloween Treats--CHEEEEEEEEAAP!


So the girls and I got their treat bags put together for their school Halloween parties. The parties which I will not be able to attend this year since I'll be working.  Sniff, sniff.

Anyway, I made these little tags for their treat bags, but I really wanted to post something that might help you make your Halloween a little more special. Last year I posted these treat toppers, that you can still use if you want.

But, I've been racking my brain, trying to come up with something new and cute for you, and it finally came to me tonight.

This is what I came up with.

Do you want to know what they are?

They're BOO!k marks. Ha, ha, ha

I kill myself.

Seriously though. I designed these things to be printed out as 4x6 prints (hello photo center of the cheap prints), and then you can just cut them vertically into 2" x 6" bookmarks.

You can leave them like this . . . the old fashioned way, functional, old school.

Whatever.

Or you can fold them in half so they are short and cute like this.

I just looooooooove the spider.

I actually detest spiders in real life. All spiders must DIE. But this one I could hug.

I like the cute little ghostie guy too.

Eeek! They're killing me.

So, as I was saying. The cute little short bookmarks actually are not done. They need to be magnetized.

Do you have any of these freebie magnets still lying around? Or is it laying around? Cripes, I'm supposed to know this stuff.

So, as I was saying . . . . Geez, do I keep saying that? I'm sorry. As I was saying, go find your freebie magnets and cut them up. You need two pieces for the bottoms of each bookmark.


Adhere the magnets to the inside of the bookmarks with double sided adhesive. By the way, that is a roll of magnet tape that you see there, and I didn't use any of it. It was there just in case I ran out of the free stuff.

Once you get your magnets on . . .

SHA-ZAM! You have a bookmark.

Does anyone else remember that 70s dude, Shazam, or am I crazy?

I mean, besides me being crazy, am I alone here?

Never mind. Forget I said anything.

Here are some bookmarks for you to give it a go yourself. Don't forget to click on the picture before you save it to your computer, so that you get the highest resolution. If you forget that step, you might get blurry bookmarks.

Have fun! I'm going to bed.

  2. These are so adorable that I want to make them right now, and I don't even celebrate Halloween! I love the idea. As a literature teacher, I give each student a bookmark on their birthday. These homemade ones are way cuter than anything I've seen in the store. Now I just have to figure out how to take cool graphics and make them into a 4x6 photo...

  5. You are funny! Boo!k marks! : ) When I come up with such witty things I say it to everyone in the family to make sure they see how witty I am.

    Love the bookmarks! How cute is this! I like them both ways ~ either as is once cut or with the magnets and folded over. I would use this for my books ~ forget kids!

  12. Ok, so I already sort of had a girl crush on you for being so amazing with the crafts and organization and chocolate cake (which my husband did make me, and MAN, that was AWESOME!!) and stuff, but then you said SHAZAM, and now it's full blown. :-P

    This is fantastic and while I probably won't get around to it for Halloween (and my kids don't read yet on their own) but hello, Christmas present toppers!!!!!

    You're fantastic!

  38. I love these!! What a great idea...especially since they're photo so no need to laminate!

    I second the previous poster's very subtle hint for Christmas ones!!! :)

  39. Ok, am I the only slow one here? Why does a bookmark need to be "magnetized?" Is that so you can store it on your fridge between reads? 'Splain this please.
