OTWC #51: Easter Treat Bags

Hi there.  Today I am sharing my little treat bags I made for my Sunday School class.
I am entering this into Off the Wall Craftiness challenge #51: Easter.
I stamped the jar in black and then the jelly beans, doing a little masking.
I colored the jelly beans with Prismacolor Pencils and added Glossy Accents for shine.
There is also a bit of gloss on the jar.





The base toppers are 7" X 6".  Then the colored papers on top are 7" X 3". 
I like to add the colored paper on top of the BACK of the staples to protect hands from the staples.   


I actually made 20.





The poem is from the internet.  I put this part on the back:
A BAG FULL OF JELLY BEANS COLORFUL AND SWEET,
IS A PRAYER, IS A PROMISE, IS A SPECIAL TREAT
MAY THE JOY OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION
FILL YOUR HEART AND BLESS YOUR LIFE.


Supplies:
Stamps: Close to my Heart "Little Treasures" (thanks Bobbie)
Ink: Memento
Other: Prismacolor Pencils, Glossy Accents, Twine

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a blessed Easter!
