Easy Easter Treat Idea: Jelly Bean Candy Pouches {Free Printable}

Spring is here and I'm so excited about it!!  I love all the fun colors of spring!  I of course HAD to make some of my candy pouches for Easter!  And I'm so glad that I did, because I love how they turned out.  The colors are just awesome!  I think I'm going to put these in my kids' Easter baskets this year.  

This is how I made them:
I took some Jelly Beans and separated them by color.  Then using my Silhouette, I cut out the shapes.  I cut one shape out of white paper and one our of scrapbook paper, and that shape had a hole in the middle of it for the candy.  You don't need a cutter to made these though, especially the eggs.  They would so easy to cut out with scissors.

I then glued a sandwich bag onto the white shape.  I just did the edge of the shape and make sure that the glue doesn't melt through both layers of the bag.

I then filled the bag with the jelly beans.  They time around I wanted to do a little design with them.  So I made stripes with the jelly beans.  I then glued the other shaped onto the sandwich bag.  I put the glue directly onto the sandwich bag so it melts it a little bit and the glue sticks to both sides of the paper.

I then trimmed the rest of the bag around the egg.  Isn't it so much fun?  I love it!

I did a couple more shapes: a bunny and a duck.

I drew on the faces for the duck and bunny.

Then I made some fun printables with cheesy saying to put on there.  You can get the free printables HERE.

I attached the tags with a little brad and that's it!  Aren't they fun and cute?  I love how they turned out!

I try it, but It didn't work for me, the glue didn't stick together so my candies move all over the bag :(,I think I'm gonna try stitch it better :)
