Happy Friday to you! I'm so excited to be showcasing some wonderful treats with you today! I am always looking for ways to give little goodies - I have a young daughter who I'm a room mom for, I work at a Preschool and I love to let people know that I'm thinking about them! So when Mischelle asked which day I'd like to do I KNEW that I had to have Easter Favors and Treat Holders!
I will show each of the projects in more detail and remember these could easily be made for ANY occasion...not just Easter :D
First up is one of my favorites - it's a treat holder using a paper bag.
I folded the bottom of the bag up and then trimmed it with my decorative scissors. Next I sewed the edges of the bags so that I could create three pockets. I used EASTER BUNNY T-3304 for my main image. I sponged the edges with Burnt Umber and used a stamp from BACKGROUND SOUP T-3346 as well.
The tag is from MAGGIE SWIC V-847 and is in the first pocket. This will hold a little note to the lucky recipient (in this case my daughter). In the next pocket I've put a lollipop, some pixie sticks and an M&M packet. Using the same pink cardstock that is on the front, I stamped polka dots (again from the stamp set BACKGROUND SOUP T-3346) using Bella Rose ink. The sentiment is from HOPPITY SKIPPITY R-2041. The last pocket holds two pencils with special erasers, another packet of M&M's and a gummy treat. It's amazing how much I can get in the pockets. Plus the bag I used is a wine sack so it's not as wide as a normal lunch sack would be...just think how much those would hold!
Next up is a pouch using the fabulous MAGGIE SWIC and Cardstocks.
I looked and looked for flat suckers to put in this and for some reason those aren't popular for Easter like they are for Valentine's Day. So I kept thinking what else could I put in this? I already knew I wanted to use that adorable bunny from the new Spring Fling set, Beautiful Day T-3341 so I was pretty picky as to what would work. I remember the commercial from that new movie Hop where the bunny lays jelly beans and finally decided that I'd have a sack full of jelly beans.
Instead of coloring him I just stamped him on Kraft Cardstock and then cut it out. I added a little pink to him using my colored pencils and a little brown for the sign so it stood out more. I used TAG TIDBITS T-1186 to add the "for you" sentiment.
My last project is a super quick one and is perfect for the "older" friends and family in your life.
This one is super easy and fast! Would be great for co-workers! I used ANGELEE SWIC and Cardstock to make a little holder and to wrap a few Hershey Nuggets with. I stamped the bunny from FOR ALL SEASONS T-2708 on the green paper and then wrapped it around the candy. It's in a pretzel bag and is secured with a few staples which a topper hides. I used a generic sentiment from HOPPITY SKIPPITY R-2041 on it so I can give it to anyone.
Well there you have it! I hope I've inspired you to create some Easter favors and treat holders this weekend! Feel free to visit me at my blog anytime, Creative Journey!
