Jelly Bean Treat Bags

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you some party favors I made for my daughter's preschool Easter party. I bought some Smartie-flavored jelly beans at Giant and paired them up with this cute jelly-bean-lovin' cupcake from the Sweet Spring set. All three prism CS colors and the white grosgrain ribbon are from the Easter Key Ingredients pack.

These bags are really easy to make. Here's a quick tutorial:

- Cut a piece of colored Prism CS to 3-5/8" and score it at 1"

- Along the 1" scored end, use any edge punch (I used the Martha Stewart Doily Punch)

- Fill a 3" x 4" cellophane bag with candy and tape the top of the cellophane bag to your CS (under the punched edge)

- Add a white panel with your stamped image over the cellophane bag and under the punched edge. My stamped panel is cut to 2.25" x 3". Then just fold over the punched edge, punch a circle with a cropodile, and add your ribbon....that's it!

Stamps: SASI Sweet Spring
Paper: Prism CS from Easter Key Ingredients (Frosted Teal, Frosted Kiwi, Razzleberry Light), Choice Snow White CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (E33, V91, RV21, Y11, BG10, YG03)
Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon from Easter Key Ingredients, Martha Stewart Doily Punch, Cropodile, 3" x 4" Cellophane Bags, Jelly Beans

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
