Black Cat {Treat Bags}

There were once two cats of Kilkenny.
Each thought there was one cat too many;
So they fought and they fit,
And they scratched and they bit,
Till, excepting their nails,
And the tips of their tails,
Instead of two cats, there weren't any.

Nah...this post has nothing to do with fighting cats but a Google search on "Candy Cats nursery rhyme" came up empty, so I used what came to mind. Hey, it's a cold and wet Saturday afternoon and I should be able to get away with this. Ha!

Using a Mother Goose nursery rhyme to start a post may be lame but being tickled about this treat bag is not. Does it look familiar to you? It's one of bags from the Backpacks Cut It Set! I gave it a whole new look by changing the color from blue to black. Pretty neat, eh? ;-)

I used black beading wire (26 gauge) for the whiskers and used Stickles for glitter.

I bought the green googly eyes from the Michaels' seasonal (Halloween) aisle but if you can't find them, you could totally use regular googly eyes too. I do like the green ones a lot though.

I'm off to make a couple more of these treat bags for the kids. Want to make some of your own? Just CLICK HERE to get the Backpacks Cut Its and use the black and grey paper for the cat bag.

Have a good rest-of-the-weekend! :-)

  2. Adorable Jin! I kept thinking there must be a way to halloween those backpacks up, but I couldn't think of one! Thanks for the idea! I hope I can find those green eyes!
