Welcome to March’s Cross Canada Blog Hop, where we’re wishing everyone a Hoppy Easter!!  The pastels, the bunnies, the fun … it makes us feel like Spring is really just around the corner.

Now, let’s get HOPPING and see some awesome projects from across Canada that you can do too!

HERE'S MY PROJECT: Mini Easter Treat Bags

These adorable treat bags are a favourite project of mine.  They look so cute and you can get really creative without using a lot of product OR a lot of time.  They come together so easily.

This time, the treat bags were cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge at 3.5". When folded and finished, they are only 2.5" tall -- perfect for a just a few little eggs.  I plan to put this at the place settings when we host Easter Dinner in a few weeks.

Just like egg decorating, the sky is the limit when it comes to decorating these little bags.  I used lots of stamps and fabulous inks, washi tape and shimmer trim.  Oh, and don't forget the zip strips that come with CTMH papers -- they are PERFECT for these little bags.

I also made some bags using the March Stamp of the Month, "Choose Happy".  It works so well because making these bags really made me happy.

And you don't have to be limited to Easter.  With St. Patrick's Day happening this week, I made some "lucky" treat bags too.
