Fresh Fridays - Hippity Hoppity

Easter's on it's way!

This week I've got a cute little project to make for your little ones (and not so little ones!). A super simple, Easter treat bag. And believe me, it's simple!

Cut a sheet of plain or printed cardstock like American Crafts Cardstock Pack - Spring to 6" X 12". Score and crease at 2 1/4", 6 1/4" and 8 1/4". Fold so that the short piece is at the front. Because it's cutting the page in half, I ended up making two at the same time! (see, simple)

To make the topper and have an extra piece for the 2nd treat bag, cut a sheet of printed paper to 6" x 5". Score and crease at 2 1/2" and 6". Attach the paper using a tape/glue runner. I've used various Easter themed adhesive borders that I had lying around to decorate the front as well as ribbon. Of course you can use anything your little heart desires to create the feel you want! I'm sure that for the Cricut users out there, you'll have the perfect cartridge to use. For the closure I used a 3/4" hook and loop circle.

Once your goodie bag is made, you'll need to fill it. Take a 6" cellophane bag and fill it with mini eggs, chocolates and marshmallow chicks, fold over the top edge and staple. Then use a tape/glue runner to attach to the inside of the goodie bag.

Now it's all ready to give. Of course after making and filling them, you may decide you want all the sweet treats for yourself!

So from all of us at Posh Designs to all of you, have yourself a Happy Easter weekend, however you may be celebrating it!
