I’ve been really enjoying using my Cricut lately. I wish I had space to keep it out all year round but my crafting table is overflowing at the moment. I wanted to make some Easter treat bags for the kids to fill over the Easter weekend. We always have an Easter egg hunt in the garden. Last yearI painted little wooden crates and personalised them with their names using my Cricut. This year I decided to make something new for the kids to store their treats in, sweet little Easter treat bags.
I found an Easter egg svg I liked and bought a couple of navy cotton zipped pouches. I used a gorgeous mustard colour iron on vinyl. I also used:
Cricut Transfer Tape
Cricut StandardGrip mat
Cricut EasyPress Mini
How to make Cricut-made Easter treat bags
Open Cricut Design Space and create a new project. Import your svg and re-size (I measured my treat bags to make sure the image would fit).
I chose a gorgeous mustard vinyl and set up my Cricut machine with the StandardGrip mat.
I then set the Cricut machine to cut the text from vinyl. I did this twice.
Then I was able to weed the excess vinyl away, and trim each sign.
I set the EasyPress Mini to the correct temperature and pressed the vinyl in place to make my Cricut-made Easter treat bags. They were so simple to make but love that they are a little different to the usual Easter basket. Now my children are a little older I think they will be able to re-use these Easter treat bags for a while.
