Happy Easter with Charms Creations - Mini Easter Bags

Hi Everyone, this week being Easter week, we are celebrating at Charms Creations, with a blog hop.

There is lots of fun stuff happening on the blog this week, so make sure you check in every day. There is a prize up for grabs at the end of the week. Don't forget to collect your words. 

Easter for my family usually means a relaxing weekend, maybe some time to do projects at home such as gardening, finishing off something that has already been started, catching up with family, maybe a picnic or a drive. This year, I'm hoping to get a couple of scrapping layouts created, with so many cool challenges around. 

The Easter bunny still comes to visit, even though my kids are adults now, they still want some eggs. There are 2 little people in our family though, who do get a little extra visit from the bunny, nephews Jareth and Kaldon. 

So instead of the boring old presentation of eggs and bunnies in commercial packaging, I have created some mini Easter bags to present them in. 

I found these cute bags, bunnies and chicks whilst out shopping recently, at the homewares store - Bed, Bath and Table. 

So I had a plan to use these for the goodies for the boys. I thought about how to enhance them rather than leaving them plain, and Charms' Creations came to mind along with the bunnies and chicks. These are some of the bits from my stash that I thought I might work with. 
I tried a couple of different ones, but in the end went with the arrows. 
So here are the bags from this:
To this:
A simple project, but something a little special other than ordinary commercial packaging. 
Happy Easter, and happy creating.
