Happy Easter !! I hope the true meaning of this Holy day resonates with you and your family, at least in between some snacks of chocolate and jelly beans ! The Easter Bunny was very good to my son this morning ... he was so excited to see all those treats ! I am showing you some more treats today ! I made these Two pocket Treat Holders for my co-workers last week, and gave them out on Thursday. I made a Hallowe'en version of these in October and was one of my most popular blog posts ! You can see them here. The ones I made for Easter used the cute Happy You hostess set and some DSP from the Patterned Stacks. Take a look !!
Aren't they adorable !? I thought these cute springy images from the Happy You set would work great for Easter. I stamped them with Jet Black StazOn onto Whisper White cardstock and colored them with my ink pads and Blender Pens. My color combo is Regal Rose, Wisteria Wonder, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight. Very colorful and spring like ! I punched out my images with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, and then layered that onto a 1-3/8" Circle Punch. I then punched out some 1-3/4" Scalloped Circle Punches and adhered my stamped images with some Dimensionals. The Happy Easter sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and I punched it with the Word Window Punch. The punch was really too long for my liking, so I stuck the punch onto a little post it note and fed it back into the punch. With some careful lining up, I could then make my Word Window shorter ! A great way to make any word or phrase fit perfectly. Yay !
The treat pockets themselves are SO simple ! You just need a 6"x6" piece of paper and then you score it from corner to corner on your Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. Then rotate and score at 2" and turn upside down and score at 2" again (both of the scores at 2" should cross over the middle score). And thats IT !! Then fold your two corners in, and fold in half so you make 2 pockets, one in the front and one in the back !! I then used a regular hole hunch and punched at the top and used the 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon to tie it closed, but you could also just use a staple or some Bakers Twine or something. LOVE IT !! They hold 2 Ghirardelli chocolate squares perfectly ... and who doesn't love those !?!
Well, thats my LAST Easter project for 2013 !! These would be perfect for any occasion though ... or even just as a sweet treat for a friend for no reason at all !! Thanks a lot for coming by today. Have a very Happy Easter and of course, Happy Stamping !!
