Easter Chick Treat Sacks!

Hey, Trendy Peeps!!!
All month long we will be spotlighting the Watermelon Trendy Twine and Small Candy Sacks over on the Twine It Up w/ Trendy Twine blog!
The Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine is such a yummy flavor for Spring and Easter!
Here are some treat sacks that are sure to make anyone smile!
I filled my candy sacks up with Laffy Taffy flavored jelly beans. I made my tag using a retired file from Treasure Box Designs. The Easter chick is from the shirt front of the little boy in the Bobble Buddies Easter file. (It was once a freebie, so you might have it stashed somewhere on your computer.) The tag itself is from a set of tags I found in the Silhouette store and then I gave it an offset layer in my software. After cutting my tag and the pieces for my chick; I inked, chalked, and used my gel pen on the pieces to add dimension. The chick is attached to the tag using foam squares.
The then tied my sacks shut using a piece of the trendy twine and then threaded my tag onto it and finished it off with a bow. Now that all the preliminary work is done, this treat sack will take about 5 minutes reproduce. Super easy if you are making several for class parties and such. Like I said, the chick I used is retired; so just find a file with only a few pieces and give this project a try.
Thanks for stopping in today as always!
I invite you to stop by my  Facebook and Pinterest pages as well.
And next Saturday (3/21) you will definitely want to come by for a visit. I'll be having a giveaway here and on my Facebook page. There will be two prizes. And I have a sneak peek of one of them for you right now. I'll be giving away a Watermelon Taffy Mini Trendy Twine set.
Alrighty then, see you soon!!!
