An Easter Treat Bag!

Hi everyone ... it's Pretties Tuesday so I have another Paper Pretties project to share with you today.

Paper Pretties had it's monthly "Stampin in your Jammies" party over on the Paper Pretties forum last Wednesday 1st April to celebrate the release of some new stamps. One of the challenges during the party was to create an Easter Treat. Well a treat to me would be tiny Easter Eggs so I decided to create an Easter goodie bag to hold the eggs using Paper Pretties Hippity Hoppity stamp set.

To create my goodie bag, I used the largest of the Nestabilities curved rectangles dies and cut out two shapes out of the pink card. I then embossed both pieces using a sizzix texture plate, after embossing I sponged over the raised part of the embossed card using pink ink.

I used the large oval punch to punch out the handle on both pieces. I then attached a cut down paper bag to the back of each piece to create my bag and decorated as per the pics you see here.

Stamps: Hippity Hoppity - Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Pretty In Pink & Regal Rose - SU
Other: Black Ink; Curved Rectangles Nestabilities; Lace Doiley Border Punch; Oval Punch; Circle Punches; Scallop Circle Punch; Pink Brads; Pink Pearls; Foam Tape; Copics
