Halloween Mini Treat Bag Tutorial

Hello everyone!! Kymona here with a Halloween mini treat bag to share with you. Now that my daughter is in high school, I don’t have anyone to make school gifts for. Then a light bulb went off, and I remembered my two-year-old niece just started daycare. I can make her and her classmate’s gifts for every holiday. Yayyyy!
