Easter blog hop

I love making new blogging friends.  I met Hani (of Haniela's) through Marlyn (of Montreal Confections - she is the talented artist behind my 10th anniversary cake and cookies.)  I love that dessert artists and paper-crafters can inspire each other!  Today, I'm joining Hani's easter-inspired blog hop with a set of stenciled muslin treat bags:

The how-to is very simple:

stenciled easter treat bag

1.  Cut a bunny shape out of freezer paper (I used a steel die, by Papertrey Ink, but you could make do with a googled bunny shape and a pair of scissors).

2.  Iron your template, shiny side down, onto your desired fabric.  I stenciling onto muslin bags, but wouldn't this look so sweet on a baby's onesie?  or a little canvas tote?

3.  While you're at it, make a batch of them *grin*

4.  Grab your favorite fabric paint, and a sponge brush (ignore the fact that I'm a little ghetto, using the tupperware lid as my artist palette *grins*)

5.  Paint a few coats with ease - the freezer paper creates a bond so as long as you don't puddle your paint (thin coats are best), you'll get perfect results every time.

You can put Easter treats inside, just as is, or how about turning this into an Easter advent calendar?

I strung them up with other fabric scraps in between.... the little pom-pom tails are the sweetest touch, especially when you see them in a row:

However you choose to do it, it is a sweet little project!
