Easter chick Riley!

One last post until next week; I'm heading to Wisconsin tomorrow early so that my Mom and I can do a team effort and make these little gift bags for everyone at our Easter gathering! I got my new Take Ten magazine and fell in LOVE with the little easter bags Jen Del Muro made out of little paper sacks. I created my own version of them here with the Easter Riley stamp image from Hanna Stamps. Full instructions for making these bags are in the Spring issue of Take Ten magazine...they are SO easy and fun to make!

We decided to fill them with caramel puff corn. I think Mom is going to throw food coloring into the mix and make the caramel corn brightly colored, so that it will look festive inside the gift bags! Notice there is no caramel corn in my bag here. That would be the "team effort" part, because I am NOT SO GOOD in the kitchen. Ahem. So I wasn't blessed with cooking skills.
I'm still trying to use up old patterned paper, so I've used Basic Grey Lollipop shoppe & My Minds Eye papers on these.

I wanted to show you this close-up of the image, to show you what I did to Riley. I decided to give him a yellow "chick" outfit, like he's trying to fit in with the other easter chicks! I took my black copic multiliner pen and drew squiggly lines on Riley's body outline, then I colored him in with yellow.

Have a wonderful Easter, and remember....always bite the chocolate bunny ears off first!
