Ready for another idea for Halloween treats? 
I love my Starbucks Via mixes. And I'm willing to let go of one or two...lol...as a treat for that special someone. I made a cute pocket to hold one and jazzed it up for Halloween. And honestly, you could make this pocket for any reason...that's what's awesome about My Creative Time...so much cuteness for any reason!!!

I used the new envelope die from the latest release to make this cute pocket. You want my Via, don't you! Def yummy! Anyhow, instead of folding the top flap back to close the envelope I folded it the other way, as a decorative top. Then I cut another piece of paper just getting the top part of the die. I cut it to perfectly fit over the other, and boom...you have a cute edge! 
I cut one of the tags from the Build A Banner set and stamped the Brew and caldron along with some hemp and a rhinestone. Also added a bit of white gel pen. I also put some bling in the bottom corner of the pocket. 
You could probably find a variety of things that will fit in this envelope to give as treats, but I LOVE these and it's perfect in this cute envie!

Here's links to what I used.

So, there you have it. Easy peasy! Pick out your favorite papers and MCT products and whip up some cute treats of your own.  Hey, why not even leave the mail carrier a treat! He brings you all these goodies anyway!
Happy Crafting!
