Spring is in the air!

And how better to celebrate then these amazing My Sweet Cherry Pie and Willow Bee products and a little candy, gift bag!?

First of all, you need to know that it is so fast and easy to put together a little bag like this. I found the template at Mels Stamps. She has a downloadable template and it works with 12x12 paper. The entire bag was cut from a piece of yellow Core'dinations cardstock and then I cut a partial bag from the Cherry Sweet gingham print. The top edge of that was punched with an Apron Lace border punch by Fiskars.

Here is a side view.

The flower is several layers, one being from the Willow Bee stamp set. I colored it with Copic markers and then layered it with a red cardstock circle and a scallop punched circle. Of course, the middle of the flower is one of the absolutely wonderful corduroy brads that Nikki Sivils offers with her collections.

This is what it looks like when it is empty but of course, it looks cuter with the suckers!
