Easter Treat Holders + Free Shipping Offer

I'm such a last minute Lucy this year! Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and I just got around to making these cute little treat holders last night. I needed a project that was fast and easy (but cute, of course) and I found them made by a fellow crafter at Splitcoast Stampers.  They were so adorable I did not change a thing. Once I had my supplies assembled, I was able to whip up a dozen of them in an hour and half. Awesome! 

The first thing you will want to do is stamp the image onto a piece of Windows Sheet with White Stazon Ink, and then put those aside to dry for a few minutes while you assemble the rest of the treat holder. The card stock is cut 2" x 8 1/2" and then scored at 3 1/2" and 5". Then, both ends were fed into the Tag Topper Punch. After that, they were embossed with the Designer Frame Embossing Folder and the centers punched with the Extra Large Oval Punch. The Window Sheet panels were attached with Mini Glue Dots. Tuck in a little treat and tie a bow with some twine, and you're done!  (BTW, I don't know why the card stock looks so bright in this photo but it's Pear Pizzazz). 

Breaking news! Stampin' Up is offering free shipping on everything (excluding expidited orders) from April 21-25! This coincides perfectly with the list of retiring products, will be available on Monday, April 21! Be sure to check in Monday morning as I will have the list posted.

How did you keep the treat bag from falling out? I've looked at a lot of these and I'm missing something... I'm sure when you mention it, I will say "duh"!
