It's Halloween time again, and as a kid, I ALWAYS loved getting a small gift bag of candy trick-or-treating instead of the usual ho-hum handful.  Sure, you wouldn't always get more candy with the gift bag, but the surprise of opening it up to see what was inside was ALWAYS a treat! 

Plus, sometimes they got creative!  I got candy is small pumpkins, and cauldrons, but nothing I remember would fall into my Halloween theme this year, Mad Scientist's Lab!

So I made these adorable test tube goodie bag poppers to hand out on Halloween (I will probably run out before I run out of trick-or-treaters, but hopefully some of the neighborhood kids will get a kick out of these!

What You Will Need:
Empty Toilet Paper Rolls (or paper towel / wrapping paper rolls cut into 5" sections"
Empty Clean White Styrofoam Egg Cartons
White Glue or Glue Sticks
Hot Glue Gun
White Paper
Black Sharpie or other marker
Tissue Paper in Assorted Colors
Candy to fill them (and snack on too!)

Step 1: Cut Up Your Egg Carton

To make the rounded bottoms of the test tube (which are also JUST flat enough to let them stand on their own), cut up a white styrofoam egg carton into the individual egg cups.

Measure the individual cups to the opening of the toilet paper roll, and trim each cup so that there is no excess.
