Burlap Bunny Treat Bags for Easter

Burlap Bunny Treat Bags for Easter
Hello new friends! My name is Daniela, and I blog over at Put A Bird On It. I’m really happy to be blog swapping with Sarah today. You definitely need to stop by my blog and check out the adorable etched project she is sharing with my readers. Sarah and I both love using our Silhouette cutting machines for projects – in fact, that’s how we met! We were going to swap Silhouette projects today, but I am a total slacker and didn’t do one! Ok – not a total slacker – I am actually in the process of moving, so all of my crafting gear is packed in a box – including my Cameo! It’s total sadness, because I haven’t been able to craft as much lately. BUT – I did break out some easy to find/buy crafting supplies to bring you guys this adorable Easter craft. Read on for the full tutorial!
I think burlap + Easter go hand in hand, don’t you?! These little treat bags are a CINCH to make and perfect for teacher gifts, friend gifts, or hiding a special something for that special someone. I found my burlap bags on > Pick Your Plum < for cheap, cheap, cheap. You have to check out this awesome site. They always have craft supplies on a major sale.
Supplies
 
Burlap Bags
Bunny Bags Stencil {download free printable HERE!}
Vinyl or Freezer Paper
{if using freezer paper, you also need: Sharpie + X-Acto Knife}
Acrylic Paint(s)
Foam Brush, Foam Pouncer, Q-Tips, Paintbrush
White Pom Poms
Hot Glue Gun
Candy!
The Fun Part
 
1. Cut out your bunny stencil. If using vinyl, create the stencil & cut using your cutting tool. If using freezer paper, print out the Free Printable Bunny Bag Stencil {download HERE}. Place underneath your freezer paper and trace using a sharpie. Cut out inside of stencil with your X-Acto knife.
Tip: I’ve heard you can print directly onto your freezer paper. I haven’t tried it, but if you do, let me know how it goes!
2. Place your stencil on your burlap bag. If using vinyl, adhere with transfer tape. If using freezer paper, iron onto the burlap. I used wax paper and it did not iron on to my burlap. I was able to just hold it down with my fingers and daub the paint over the stencil. It worked great!
3. Paint over the stencil using the acrylic paint & foam brush. Be sure to place a piece of thick paper in the inside of your burlap bag. Otherwise, the paint will seep through. Make as many bunnies or other designs as you want. I made one polka dot bag, too, ’cause I’m kind of obsessed with polka dots! I used a q-tip to make the small green polka dots and – YEP – a q-tip to paint on the large, white polka dots, too.
 
Tip: the bunny insert you cut out earlier is GREAT for holding the paint color you’re using!
 
4. Let dry! If you are impatient, like me, you can use a blow dryer to speed up the process. Remove the stencil {I removed before drying, but you can wait, too}.

5. Remove paper from inside of burlap bag. Hot glue your white pom pom “bunny tail” onto your burlap bag.
You’re done! Congrats! You just made an adorby Easter treat bag.
Thanks again to Sarah for letting my guest post! I’d love to have you stop by Put A Bird On It and say HI. Don’t forget to check out Sarah’s post while you’re there. Have the best day ever!
