Hi, Everyone! Jana Eubank here. It's always fun to gather family together for Easter dinner or an Easter egg decorating party in the Spring. Why not create these darling Easter egg-shaped favor bags for your guests using the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection this year?!
I love choosing a holiday icon and incorporating it into my party decor. This time, I chose to use the Easter egg. I love this shaped bag that I was able to cut out using my electronic die cutting machine. I cut the base of the bag from white textured cardstock, and then used papers from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 12x12 Single Sided Paper Pad for decorating.
The first thing I did was to choose the papers for the flat decorative panels of each bag. I chose the marbled paper of the center egg first, because it reminded me of what eggs look like when you dye them! I then chose the yellow script and pink papers to coordinate with the marbled paper. The foiled designs of the paper pad look extra special on this project!
Next, I used a pair of scissors to fussy-cut several flowers and butterflies from papers in the pad. The foil outlines of the flowers really help them to stand out. They look so elegant and would be pretty adorning the plate of each person and the Easter dinner table. Next, I chose a Glittered Word Cardstock Die Cut sentiment to go on the front of each bag.
The Glittered Words are mounted on a banner shape handcut from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 6x6 paper pad. The smaller patterns of the 6x6 paper pad are perfect for grounding the sentiments, and the patterns don't compete with the shapes of the letters, making the sentiment difficult to read.
I then used the Stay Colorful Alpha Clear Acrylic Stamps to create a personalized tag for each favor box. I clipped the tag onto the handle of the egg box with one of the Iridescent Mini Clothespins. CUTE!!!
These egg favor boxes are the perfect way to add that unique touch to your Easter party. Your guests are sure to feel special!
I'm already getting excited for Spring! And I can't wait to enjoy it with my family and give them these delightful treat bags. See you again soon!
