  44. Cindy Rescorl says:

    Love them all, but the Starry Night punch with the bat is my fav.

  45. My fave might be the spider I think, or it could be the hat. Probably depends on my mood. Thanks for the hop along the blog path.

  46. Sue in CT says:

    Hard to pick one but I think I would have to say the pumpkin one. (Then the bat and last the spider only because I think that the fact that I am really afraid of spiders has something to do with putting the spider last). However, I really do love all three.

  47. Marianne - Fiskateer #6701 says:

    These are really fun bags for your Halloween treats! If I have to pick, I think I like the one with the bat (first in the photo of all three). It was really nice of you to provide a PDF with the directions!
