I Can Already Smell the Jelly Beans

Hi Everyone
Easter is just around the corner. How many bags of Easter candy have you had already?
I made a midnight trip to Wal-Mart last night and unfortunately walked down the holiday isle with all the Easter candy. Augh! I was strong and didn't buy any of it. But..oh it smelled so good.
I wanted to do something cute with the new from and I ran into a bag that I thought was so cute. It's made using the Nestie die cuts. I saw this bag on and couldn't wait to give it a try.
I used the largest scallop die and the larges oval die. I cut a strip of paper about 1 1/2" to make the bag part. I made tiny slits and folded them in to secure to each side scallop circle.
I added some ribbon to the small strip of card stock for the handle. I think it serves two purposes. If you have paper that's a little light weight if you add a strip of ribbon it gives it more structure. It also gives it a nice added dimension to the project.
Go check out the digital stamp of Easter Anya
Have a great weekend!
