OCC- Easter Theme Challenge

Hello everyone! Welcome to another fun challenge from Our Creative Corner!! This week's challenge is brought to us by our April host, Silke Ledlow. Silke has challenged us to an Easter theme challenge.

For my design, I decided to create a project. I took one of my kids lunch bags and cut about 4" off of it. I cut two pieces of cardstock just about 1/4" larger on all four sides. Before adding the cardstock panels, I made a handle using my eyelet punch and some extra scraps. I added the first panel along with the handle and then carefully added the second panel along with the other end of the handle.

On the front of the bag, I created a pocket to hold the card. The front was decorated using the rectangle Nestabilities from Cut At Home. For some extra fun on the Nesties, I added some glue and some snow glitter by Martha Stewart. The darling bunny is from the Sleepy Bunny set by Stamps and Smiles. Want to save 15% on your order, add this coupon code SAS09JM
Here is a close-up of the bunny, she or you can leave off the bow and make it a he, is just too sweet and I am having a blast coloring her up with my Copics!!

Normally there is no time limit on our challenges but this week we have a special Guest Designer, Jennette Fincher. Jeanette is donating a stamp set to one lucky winner!! In order to win this set, please have your card/project uploaded to the OCC and add your name to Mr. Linky by 12 noon on Friday, April 10th. If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords. The winner will be announced Saturday, April 11th.
Thanks for stopping by! Please check back soon, I will create a tutorial on my bag.
Have a wonderful weekend!
