JAI Challenge #8 - Just Add Easter

Hithere, I thought I might join in the Just Add Ink challenge this week.  The challenge is to "just add Easter".

I decided to make up my own pattern for some little Easter bags:-

With a little tweaking, I turned the smaller one into a bunny.  He is cut from white glossy cardstock, with a hint of sponging in his ears & for his cheeks:-

The bags are made from a single piece of paper & don't need adhesive.  There is a flap at the top which tucks into a slit on the back.  Here's the little bag open:-

They work beautifully with double sided DSP, or you could make them in cardstock & stamp your own design.  This is what they look like side on:-

You can fit either three of the little solid eggs in the small bag/bunny, or one of the slightly larger filled eggs.  Yum, the pink ones I have here are strawberry filled!   :)

You can fit either six of the little solid eggs or three of the filled eggs in the large bag.

I thought they would make really cute little Easter class gifts for school, or obviously the bags could be used for all sorts of occasions.

So, if you would like a PDF version of the patterns, so you can print them out straight onto paper to cut out, please leave me a comment somewhere on my blog (make sure there is some sort of link for me to your email address) & I would be happy to share them with you.

Hope you like them!  I enjoyed making them (& sampling the eggs).....
