Frankentags! (and pumpkins ones, too)

I had been saving plastic bread tags for a few weeks.  The hubs thought I was just weird, but still helped me collect them.  
What a guy!
 

I love them!
I first saw this super cute idea at Crafts by Amanda.  They are cute, fun to make, and hey,...you're recycling!  


I gathered up my supplies...paint, paintbrushes, and toothpicks.


I covered them in a layer of glitter glue for some added cuteness.  To paint on those little details like the hair and eyes, I used a toothpick. 
 

These are perfect for using to close off Halloween goody bags!

You have such cute things on here!! I wanted to let you know that I recently started a "Handmade Tuesdays" where I feature a tutorial (let me know if you ever want to be featured :) and then I am having a linky @ the bottom where people can link up tutorials. It doesn't need to be a recent tutorial, the only rule I came up with is it cannot be repeated week to week :) Anyway, I would love if you would participate! I am trying to grow it and get it out there :) Oh & I am also going to feature etsy shops :)
