It's ReNae here, with the FotoBella Design Team, and if you're like me, even though your goblins aren't children anymore, you still like giving a little something to your older spooks at Halloween. These little gift bags are perfect for gift cards, gift certificates, and even money for your more sophisticated tricksters!
