Jelly Belly!

Happy Good Friday! 
Are you all set for the coming of the Easter Bunny? 
I'm getting ready by creating some of these Easter Bunny Jelly Bean gift bags.  You can purchase these canvas bags from DRS Designs.  They measure approx. 6.5" x 5" when completely flat and have a drawn string closure.  They are available in 10 packs for $4.95.  Here is mine unfilled so you can see what I did to decorate it. 

I tried thinking out of the box and did a bit more than just stamping the bag as I had with the St. Patrick's Day bag I made.  After stamping and coloring the Jelly Bunny Bean (221M) image with Copic Markers, I opened the side seam and then used scissors to cut out the fabric from the bunny's stomach.  I used a sewing machine to sew an acetate panel in it's place to create a see-thru window.  I then sewed the side panel back up, stamped the One Line Happy Easter Greeting (665B) and then adhered pink ric-rack ribbon to the top and bottom of the bag.  Last, but not least, I filled the bag with jelly beans!    

Now I know why that bunny has such a big tummy...look at all the jelly beans he ate! LOL!

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
