"Spring in my Step" Blog Hop!

Welcome to Scrapbook Heaven's "Spring in my Step" blog hop!! Thanks so much for joining us! We are excited to be hosting our FIRST ever blog hop!

If you just happened by my blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Scrapbook Heaven and start the Hop. Our members have some wonderful inspiration to share with you..... and also, some prizes :-)

Our theme is "Spring in my Step". We'll be sharing a variety of Spring-y projects with you.

~*~*~***~*~*~

My project is a little treat bag. I used Scrapbook Heaven's April kit for this project.

You start with a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. Score it lengthwise at 2 1/2" and 6". Turn 90 degrees and score at 4 3/4" and 6 1/4". Adhere tape or glue as shown.



Turn your paper over so that the "base" is on the bottom.

Fold in one corner at a time, adhering to side edge.



This is what it should look like inside



Repeat with other 3 corners.

Your box should look like this now. Add glue or tape to top area as marked.


Crease side edges and decorate bag as desired.



Punch hole in top.


Fill with treats and add ribbon to close.




Our blog hop run from today, April 17th until April 20th. Invite your friends to play along! We'll be drawing for prizes on Wednesday, the 21st.

Your next stop in our Hop is Teresa!

~*~*~***~*~*~

I am giving away a RAK on Wednesday, also :-) Leave a comment sharing your favorite indicator of SPRING -- I'm sure it's NOT snow, which is what we had in Newfoundland yesterday! LOL!

Very adorable bag. TFS! My favorite indicator of spring is daffodils. When I was growing up the driveway was lined with daffodils and I knew it was time to spend my days outside once they started blooming.
