Hi, Renee here! Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way…and very soon. Today I’m sharing a tutorial using items from the Cottage Living, Happy Day, Home Grown, and Special Delivery collections to create some sweet treat bags. I made these Easter Treat Bags for my nieces and nephews. Aren’t they adorable? I love how they turned out.
Here are the supplies I used to make my Easter Treat Bags:
Stickers and flowers
Candy (of course!)
I started with an Easter Bunny to decorate my treat bags. If you don’t have a Silhouette machine like me, no problem! I found this adorable Easter bunny printable on Pinterest and downloaded it for free.
I opened it in Word. I changed the Page Layout to 4″ x 6″ and re-sized the bunny to 3″ x 4.5″.
Under the Artistic Effect tab, I clicked on “Glass” for an outline of the bunny.
Now, it’s ready to Print. You could always print out the bunny directly onto your favorite pattern papers.
I chose to print out my bunny on a 4″ x 6″ white card, cut it out, and used it as my template. My actual cut bunny template measures 2 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ (remember that there will be space around the bunny as you size it in Word).
Place, Trace, and Cut! So easy and fun just like Kindergarten. 😉 I added white pom-poms for my bunny tails. They look adorable!
Now, to work on my treat bags. I filled the Glassine Bags with candy first. How pretty are these pastel blue and pink printed bags?! They are just perfect Easter colors for my nieces and nephews.
Then, I trimmed the Home Grown Foliage pattern papers to 4″ x 12″ and added a decorative scallop edge to one side. I chose this pattern paper so that my bunnies have a nice grassy spot to sit in. 🙂 Next, I cut that strip to 4″ x 5.25″ (which would be 12 scallops for each bag). Then, I scored them, folded them in half, and stapled them to each treat bag.
They look awesome! Now, to decorate the toppers of these Easter Treat Bags.
I added the Easter Bunnies to each bag topper first. I added Dimensional Dots to the backs of the bunnies making sure to place them in the same spots so that the heights of the bunnies will be the same on each bag.
My nieces have cute little bees dancing around their flowers.
And, my nephews have pretty butterflies dancing around their flowers.
All of the Easter Treat Bags are done! Aren’t they fun? They look so cute! I kept the design sweet and simple for the kids. They are going to love the pom-pom bunny tails and the yummy candy treats inside. I really enjoyed making these.
WISHING YOU A JOYOUS EASTER!
