Hey, Chickie! Easter Treat Bag

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  There is something special about fluffy little Easter chicks that makes us all go, "Awwwwww, cute."  With that in mind,  I thought it would be fun to work up an Easter Treat Bag using the glorious Welcome Spring Ribbon Club Assortment.  These ribbons are the color of hyacinths and apple blossoms and daffodils, and baby green leaves and all spring colors we love so very much.  Take a peeky:
Totally scrumptious, right?  They made me think of the color palette in the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper collection.  So I pulled that out of my stash along with a middy bitty kraft bag and went to work.
The colors of this bag make me think of the lilac bushes that used to flourish in my home town when I was growing up in Vermont.  I topped my little bag with a loopy bow tied with glorious purple satin ribbon from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  It is the perfect color match for this collection, and you know how hard it can be to match purple! The tag inside the bag is topped with scrumptious purple/pink plaid ribbon, also from the Ribbon Club Assortment.
 Have you seen the beautiful new  English Roses Bonnie is carrying in the shop? I used a purple one as the base for my flower cluster then surrounded it with apple blossoms, sweetheart blossoms and spiral stamens. I tied a teeny tiny bow in the center of my itty bitty button using Ivory Burlap String, and then tucked in some stick pins and a little brass chick charm in for good luck.
I tucked a dressed up in its Easter Best Graphic 45 Staples tag inside the bag, along with an individually wrapped chocolate.  This little Easter Treat Bag would be the perfect little surprise for a friend or co-worker, and it would mail nicely, too.

Thanks for stopping by!
