Springtime at The Beary Scrap

Happy Spring to you! I hope wherever you are, a little bit of sunshine is finding its way to you. Here in Idaho, it's very wet and muddy but the birds are out and singing so I know spring is on its way. Of course, we probably will have another snowstorm or two, that's just a normal spring here but at least winter is on the way out!

To celebrate Spring and our big Birthday Bash over 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.

I punched one edge of my paper with a 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!



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, click here to see how. Thanks for looking!
