Taylored Expressions Easter Treat Bags

I wanted to make some cute little Easter treats to take to Easter dinner for the young ones.  Although in all honesty, there's only one true young one in the extended family and she's already 9. But even though the other "kids" are 12, 17 and 21 - they are still getting cute Easter treat bags!

I pulled out Somebunny Loves You by Taylored Expressions because it's cute but I thought the silly animals might also work for these older "kids" (who probably just care about the candy anyway!).  I put them on the Bracket Notecard and then realized the "somebunny" sentiment that came with the set didn't fit in the space - so I pulled out Peek-a-Boo Easter which has the the same sentiment but in a slightly different shape and size.

I made the paper bows out of a feminine and masculine plaid and then, believe it or not, I carried the little bows to the store to match the candy.  That's a true sign of an obsessive a dedicated cardmaker!! (Sadly, after my pride in matching candy to bows subsided, I realized the flaw is that I actually have a child who doesn't do chocolate.  Ugh.  I need to carefully take apart one of the bags and then find non-chocolate matching candy!!)
