Halloween Treat Bag from Paper Napkin

I had gotten out all of the candy last evening that I had gotten over the past few weeks to get it ready for treat bags.  We live in an area where we don't get trick-or-treaters, but I make up bags for our neighbor's grandkids, another neighbor's twins, and our 2 grandaughters.  I also still give bags of candy to our grown kids and their significant others as well as my hubby.  :)  I hadn't bought treat bags for our granddaughters yet and was trying to decide if I wanted to make them or pick something up the next time I was out.  The napkins were sitting there in the napkin holder, so I thought I'd see what I could come up with.  So, here it is:

Materials Needed:
3 Paper Napkins
Scotch Tape

Filled with goodies....waiting on Halloween night.  :) 

 I used 3 napkins

 I cut 2 sides off for handles
 I taped the handles about 1/4" on each side of the center

 I stitched across the top of each side to secure the handles
 I put the napkins, printed sides together and stitched from one side of the top around to the other side. 
 I boxed the corners and stitched 1" from the point

I trimmed off the point on each side, then carefully turned it right side out. 

You could do this for any occasion.
