I’m always looking for cute ways to give a simple gift and I love this one! These Easter Treat Bags are a great substitute for a quick gift idea and were SO easy to make, and I must admit, they’re pretty adorable!
Easter Treat Bags
We usually have Easter with my In-Laws and I learned quickly that the kids got gifts for Easter…… I’m not talking candy. When did Easter become Christmas anyway? After all the kids got a little older, I’ve transitioned back to giving a simple gift and these Easter Treat Bags are perfect. I can put just candy, or I can put a gift card and candy.
Simple and easy! Because who needs complicated? Just like my Decorating Ideas for Easter…….keep it simple!
How to Make Easter Treat Bags
I used decorative bags, but a simple lunch sack would work. You can find a variety of sizes and styles at your local craft store.
Supplies for Treat Bags
- Small decorative paper bags
- Double Stick Tape (not pictured)
- Bunny Silhouette
- Hole Punch
- Craft Knife
How to Make an Easter Treat Bag: Tutorial
- Find a bunny silhouette that you like. I wanted one that looked easy to cut. You can search google images, or if you like this one, you can save it by hovering your cursor over it, right click and “Save As” and that will save it on your computer. I printed for a 3 x 5 size.
- Cut your silhouette on either plain computer paper or cardstock. The cardstock would have made it a little easier. I applied a little adhesive to the back of it, then placed it where I wanted it on my bag. This way I didn’t have to worry about it slipping out of place while I was cutting. I used a craft knife made by Martha Stewart. It was the first time trying it and I do have to say, it was very easy to work with. IMPORTANT TIP! Place a piece of cardboard inside your bag so the knife doesn’t cut through the backside of your bag too. You can see the cardboard after pulling up my freshly cut bunny. The craft knife gave me a clean cut……no tearing.
- Time to cut a small square of cellophane to create a window. I bought a large roll of cellophane, but then realized I could have just cut up one of the 14,000 clear cellophane bags I already own. Which would have probably provided a thicker window. After cutting the size you need, place double stick tape around the edges and carefully slide it inside your bag and into position. Press firmly on the bag to make sure it sticks well.
- Fold the top of the bag over and punch two holes to thread your ribbon through. Add a tag if you want. (I love the Easter Tags available for free at World Label.…they were designed by my friend Lia.)
