Halloween Hatagories Revisited

This post is the last of the Halloween Treat Holders I made for this year -- decided to revisit the Halloween Hatagories since I had not made them for a few years. Here is a photo of the original Hatagories:

This photo shows some of the Tootsie Pop Halloween Hatagories I made for this year:

Finished the treat holders with matchbook treat holders that hold the Fun Size M&Ms:

Used one sheet of orange card stock to make four of the matchbook holders. Here is the pattern for those:

One sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. With the 8 1/2" side of the card stock at the top of the score board you need to score this at 3/4", 4 1/2", and 5". Once it is scored take this to the trimmer with the 11" edge at the top of your trimmer. Cut this piece every 2 3/4" until you have four pieces. Using the bone folder crease your scored lines. Add printed card stock to the front of the holder and decorate.

Leave this open. Put the candy bag inside and staple this at the bottom to hold your bag in place. Tuck the decorated front piece behind the stapled piece to close your holder. I added various washi tapes across the bottom front of the holder over the staple. Easy holders to put together.

The pattern for the witch hat Tootsie Pop Holder can be found here:

You need to fussy cut out each holder and be sure to use thicker card stock so it will stand up and the top of the hat will keep it's shape.
