Easter Treat Bags + Video

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s project Features THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp. ‘

You can watch the video on how these treat bags came together HERE or click on the video below.

To create the bag, I started with THIS gift bag die. I cut the bag portion and the handle die twice from pink cardstock. I laid one of the bag portions on THIS Grip Mat and used some low tac tape to mask off the areas that I didn’t want ink on. I laid THIS stencil on top and applied saltwater taffy distress oxide ink. Next, I removed the tape and started bending back and forth on the score lines that the die provides. I did this with the second bag die cut as well.

To assemble the bag, I applied glue on all the flaps and the bottom panel. Once all four flaps and bottom piece is adhered down, it’s time to add the handles. I applied glue on the bottom of each handle and placed one on the inside the bag on the front and in the back.
I stamped THIS bunny image and sentiment from this Bunny Trail Stamp set and it’s coordinating dies. I stamped the bunnies with THIS Contour ink from Hero Arts. I usually stamp all my images in black but wanted something a bit softer for this basket with all the pastel colors. This ink is very light so I stamped it multiple times to get it to the shade I liked. I used THESE coordinating die to cut the images out. I like to die cut before I color just in case I mess up the die cutting.

Next, I colored in the image with Copic Markers and die cut the grass using THIS die. I only applied glue to the sides and bottom of the back of the grass die cut. This way, I can tuck the bunnies behind the grass when adhering them down.

I wanted to add one more touch to the gift bag so I die cut the tag die from Hero Arts. 
I finished off the tag by die cutting THIS mini hearts party die (one of my favorite dies for creating quick embellishments) from a piece of white glitter paper. I adhered the heart under the sentiment and then used some white string to tie it on the handle of the bag.

I added some treats inside the bag. I put in some easter candy as well as a gift card. I really like how this bag fits a gift card nicely with room to spare.
I hope this inspires you to create some treat bags.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy crafting!
