Easter Treat Bag

Hi scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy and I'm so happy to be here with you today.  As of late, I seem to have become quite the treat bag aficionado, and I figured, why change a good thing now?  Lol!  I also felt like since we're quickly approaching Easter you, my fellow scrappers, might appreciate a little inspiration.

The box I chose is from the online Silhouette store, but you can certainly find something similar on several Cricut cartridges.

Here is the basic box cut and scored.  I decided to personalize it and create a window.  I used a Spellbinders die and taped it on the inside of the box before I ran it through the Cuttlebug.  You can see that in the picture below.

Then I cut a piece of of vellum and glued it to the inside of the box.  This way the recipient can get a little peak of what's inside.  You could also use acetate if you prefer.

Even though I have a window I wanted to add this sweet little image of a bunny carrying his Easter eggs.  He was easy to color and would be fairly quick to duplicate if you wanted to make a large quantity of treat boxes.  I also added some dimensional pearls to the image.

Below is a picture of the assembled box.  As you can see there is a flap that folds down to close it up.

Of course I had to add a button and some twine to the enclosure.  Honestly, I can find a place for a button on nearly every project I create.

I decided to "frame" my image and used one of the same dies as above, to create it.  I did a little inking around the edges and added some dimensional adhesive.

  • Pattern Paper:  October Afternoon "Sidewalks"
  • Solid Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink "Sweet Blush"
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities "Large Labels"
  • Stampendous "Art Bunny" Stamp
  • Ink:  Jenni Bowlin- Chewing Gum and Speckled Egg, Memento- Tuxedo Black 
  • Button:  Papertrey Ink
  • Vellum:  Papertrey Ink
  • Twine:  I can't remember the brand, sorry.
  • Copic Markers

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope my little project provided you with some inspiration.  See you soon!
