Easter Treats!

Hi all! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I was in my craft room the other day trying to dream up some goody bags for my daughter's class for Easter and this is what I came up with.

Now... will I be adventurous enough to actually do 22 of these babies? Hhhhmmm.... we'll see! I used some spring theme paper that I had in my stash for the base and it is just a 4" by 8" piece that I cut on an angle and then scored 3-3/4" from each edge lengthwise. I did this so that my pouch would be dimensional and not just a flat fold. (You'll be able to see what I mean when I show another photo below).

The rest is just decking it out! I used a Marvy oval and Marvy oval scallop punch for my main image and layer. Then, I created a topper for my little pouch by folding a 4 by 4-1/2" piece in half so that the finished measurement was 2 by 4-1/2". Then, I just angled this piece in my paper cutter to create the fun angles at the top- just cut an angle by marking a dot 1/4" in on both sides of the fold and using your paper trimmer to cut from that mark to the corner of the flap. I hope that makes sense!

For my stamping, I used one of the NEW Sarah Phelps clear sets from Impression Obsession called Easter Bunny. You can find it HERE. There's also a smaller set too with some similar images that is just as cute HERE.

I stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and then colored with watercolor pencils blending with a blender pen. I actually stamped the bunny's shirt on a pink piece of paper and paper pieced it I just wanted the color a little more bold there.

Here's a close up!

The rest is easy! Add a tag with some gold embroidery floss. I stamped the saying from the set on a 1-1/2" circle that I punched and matted it on a scalloped circle that I punched out of dp with a SU punch. Add some pink satin ribbon as an accent and then punch two holes at the top of your flap so that it goes through not just the flap but your pouch as well. Thread the ribbon through and tie in the back....

Like this!There you have it! A fun and easy little treat bag for the little ones (and maybe big ones) in your lives!
