Easter treat bags

I hope you're all enjoying your Easter break :)
I don't think we'll be going anywhere today.
Richard has put a disc out in his back and is hobbling about,
so maybe I'll get a chance to do some crafting today :)

I made these little treat bags last week to take with us
when we were visiting with friends.
I was in a bit of a hurry so I just made them in pink and blue.
(how original! lol)

I cut the bag out with the Cameo (but you could easily do it by hand)
Then folded it over and added self adhesive velcro to keep it closed.

I love this little chickie!
It's a cut file from Silhouette and I added the name to the eggshell using print and cut on the Cameo.
Then tied twine around the top to finish it off.
 I filled cellophane bags with chocolate eggs and taped them to the inside with a strip of DS tape.

I made this bag with 2 sheets of Echo Park springtime paper and it was just the perfect size to hold the treat bags :)
You can find the tutorial for it here.

Blog awards!
I am sorry to say I have neglected to mention these.
Linda gave me the versatlie blogger award and Margaret the liebster award
and Jenny gave me the liebster award last year.
I am delighted you think my blog is good enough to have been given these awards
and I really do appreciate them.

Unfortunately I just don't have time to participate but if I were to,
I would have a hard time choosing as there are so many stunning blogs out there!

I had some other exciting news this morning.....I won the monthly challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts!
Oh wow £25 to spend guilt free on craft goodies :) Thank you Nikki.

Thank you for joining me today :)
I'll be back tomorrow with a post-it note and pen holder.
Take care
Sarah xx

Gorgeous bags Sarah - they look so professional. Every time I see something you've made using your Cameo, it reminds me that my saving up for one is taking far too long!!
