Hi. Happy Day before Easter.  Lisa here.
Thank you to those that came to check out my post and leave me some love here! Mwah!
Starting next week I will be posting on Thursdays!  FYI. But I hope you stop by here everyday for inspiration and see what the DT has in store for you.  You can always learn something new.  I hope you perused the week of Easter Treat Bags/Boxes.  I have a combo for you here I think they call it a bag box. I think. Personally, you can called it whatever you like. Looks like a bag to me. 

The finished size is 4" x 5".  
So the base is is 4" x 11, scored at 5 and 6" on the long side.  Then I folded and rounded the bottom corners with a 1/4" Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers) (one of my favorite tools).  I cut my circle using the 2 7/8 spellbinders circle die.  I embossed it too to give that nice edge.

The topper is a piece that I embossed first then cut to 4 x 2 1/2.  
Folded in half, punch 1/8" holes and threaded my twine, I knotted my ends. I like the look. 
Then I made my tag from Basic Grey Hey Girl Collect pattern paper.  I stamped my sentiment, made my banner at the end and punched a hole then cut a tiny slit from the end to the hold and just slid it onto my bow at the back. Nice little trick I learned from Julie Ebersol. 

I cut my grass, rounded my corners and sponged all edges of the dp pieces. 
 The egg I stamped on white cardstock, stamped on dp twice.  Adhered the first then popped up the second egg shells.  I also stamped an extra beak, colored and popped up.  Added itty bitty googly eyes and popped up with two pieces thick of dimensional tape.  The grass is two layers with dimensional tape between.  
The candy is Cadbury Mini Eggs (an Easter must at our house).  I placed them in a 3" wide cellophane jewelry bag and adhered a little removeable tape to the back and placed inside. 

I used the folowing A Jillian Vance Products for my bag/box
