Simple Easter Treat Bag

I LOVE Cadbury Crème Eggs and wanted to come up with a cute way to hold them to hand out as gifts.  So I created this sweet little bag to fit them!  It's super simple to make and of course fits lots of other things too, so it could be used for other types of candy or even for a different holiday!  The first thing you will need is a piece of designer series paper that measures 7 1/2" X 5".  With the long side at the top of your Simply Scored Scoring Tool score it at 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 5" and 7".  Turn it 90 degrees so the short side is along the top and score it at 1 1/2".  Now just trim off the small rectangle created on the bottom.  Burnish your score lines and trim up the rest of the bottom scores to the next score line.  Apply sticky strip to the narrow rectangle and fold your bag together sealing the sticky strip.  Simply fold up the bottom flaps and adhere.  You could now just pinch in the sides and use a mini clothes pin or paper clip to hold the bag closed, but I chose to punch a hole through both layers of paper and thread some ribbon through and then tied a knot. 
I stamped my bunny, punched him out with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and then popped it up with a dimensional on 1" Crushed Curry Circle.  Add a little pearl to the bunny's tail and this sweet little treat bag is complete!
