Have kids at home? Want to give them a little treat? We’re sharing an easy Easter Treat Bag that you can make and fill with their favorite Sweets.
You can make it with some Designer Series Paper that you have at home or make the standard version with card stock that you’ve decorated.
Here’s the Designer Series Paper version that Ann started during our stamp show. She also gives an idea for an upgrade during the show.

- Along the long side, score at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″

- Increase the 6″ side to make it taller.
- As Ann talks about in the show, you could add an inch at the top and fold it down.
- Along the long side, score at 2″, 5″, 7″ and 10″
