To celebrate Spring and our big Birthday Bash here at The Beary Scrap, I hope you will enter your project in our current Spring challenge, create anything spring related and enter it here for your chance at winning one of our 5 incredible birthday presents!
My first spring project to go along with this challenge is a quick and easy Easter treat that would be great for kids' classes, teachers, your neighbors or anyone you want to bring a smile to!
To make my treats I started by filling a 4 x 6 open top plastic bag with some Easter candy (I love Sixlets, aren't the spring colored ones cute?) Then I cut a piece of double sided designer paper from the Echo Park spring collection-- check out the Springtime Collection Kit which includes 12 - 12" x 12" double sided papers, one 12" x 12" sheet of alphabet stickers and one 12" x 12" sheet of element stickers for only $11.20!!! It's an awesome deal!
I punched one edge of my paper with a Martha Stewart border punch and cut a strip of satin ribbon about 15 inches long (more or less). I laid the ribbon underneath the designer paper, folded over the top of the bag with candy and laid it over the designer paper like this:
I then stapled the ribbon onto the back of the paper, making sure to catch the edges of the plastic bag so it would be secure.
Then I folded the top (the border edge) over to cover the top of the bag and tied the ribbon around the front.
Last I added just the heads of some Tear Bear critters-- Bella Bunny and Charlie Chick-- to the front along with a "Hoppy Easter" saying. Treats are ready to go!
I can't wait to see your Spring creations, so take the challenge and join us! And don't forget, I am also celebrating the one year anniversary of my craft blog and I am offering some Birthday Candy so if you'd like to enter for your chance to win, hop on over to my blog to see how. Thanks for looking!
