Tulip Favors

I thought a bunch of tulips would make a nice centerpiece for an Easter table...of course, ours would have to be made out of paper...and include some kind of chocolate!!!


Click here to get a pattern. You know the routine, right?...cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines:



To make the bag, overlap the two front "petals" (matching the straight edges on the bottom) and glue. Then simply fold the bottom flap up and glue the tab in place (again matching to the straight edge on the bottom). To attach the handle I simply punched a 1/8" hole on each side and tied a ribbon like this:



**Note** You'll have to package your candy in some kind of bag or they'll slip right out of the side!!)

I also added a quick tag by cutting out a (freehand) leaf and stamping with stamp #1215 (Happy Easter!). Wouldn't it also be cute to personalize each one with a name? Now just stamp away and decorate however you want!!!



Stamps used: #1203 (Chick on Egg), #5006 (Daisy) and #5002 (Flower)



Stamps used: #1204 (Chick With Tulip), #5006 (Daisy) and #5004 (Rosebud).



Stamps used: #1201 (Easter Bunny), #5002 (Flower) and #5004 (Rosebud). Thanks for stopping by!!
