Happy Easter weekend! I don’t know about you, but we still need to do a lot of our prep for Easter. Today we’ll be spending time coloring Easter eggs – and I’ll be making sure I have everything I need for Easter baskets and Easter dinner!
(PS – don’t forget to enter the Retirement List Prediction Contest! It is free to play along and you could win up to $30 in free Stampin’ Up products!)
So, back to Easter treats! I thought I would share a quick spring or Easter treat idea that you can pull together at the last minute! This was created by my Mom, Kathy Thisted, for our Fun n’ Crafty team Stamp & Share a few weeks ago and I just love it.
Scallop Tag Topper & Punch Art Treat Bag
There are lots of fun elements to this treat bag, but the nice thing is that with a few punches, it is super quick to make!
Start with a 2”x8” piece of cardstock (this is Chocolate Chip) and score at 3-1/2” x 4-1/2” to help it stand up on it’s own. Then, grab the Designer Frames Embossing Folders and use the oval to one to emboss your frame.
Use the Extra Wide Oval Punch to punch out the center of your oval. LOVE that it is an almost perfect match!
Punch both ends of the strip of cardstock with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch to give you that pretty finished look!
Then grab your Petite Petals punch and the four petal flower punch from the Bitty Punch Pack to make your Daffodil. I punched one of each shape out of Daffodil Delight cardstock.
In the sample, the flower is stamped first using the Petite Petals stamp set – and I think it definitely adds something to it. But for the sake of this tutorial, I didn’t end up stamping. I hope you don’t mind.
Fold up the small punched flower and adhere it to the center of your larger flower with liquid glue or a glue dot! I love how my mom colored in the center of the little flower with the White Gel pen for a little extra definition!
Add a scrap of cardstock for the stem and grass at the bottom. Want to hear a fun trick? Stamp out one of the flower heads from the Too Kind stamp set and then cut it out and use the backside for your grass! Neat huh?
Add some candy, tie it with a ribbon and you are done! Easy Peasy!
