Easter Goodie Bag Toppers

Hello!  Happy Thursday!
     As promised, today I am sharing the Easter goodie bag toppers that I made to go inside the kids' Easter pails.  To refresh your memory, here is another look at the Easter pails for my grand kiddies.  They were featured in yesterday's post.
     Each one has a different critter featured on their Easter pail, so I coordinated the critters on the goodie bag toppers so the kids don't get confused as to whose candy belongs to whom. 
     I purchased these Easter bags at the store some time ago (and I can't for the life of me remember which store...sorry!).  The toppers were easy to make.  I simply cut a strip of paper, punched the edge with my Martha Stewart punch, folded it in half and added a piece of patterned paper to the front.
     Next I cut a small critter to match the Easter pail.  For this one I added tiny eyes, but I mixed it up and did different eyes for each one.  After adhering the critter to the front of the topper, I filled the bag, folded the the bag over twice so it didn't open, and then I added the topper, securing it with my stapler.  Didn't they turn out so cute?
     Here is a sneak peek inside each one of the pails...
     We'll start with Missy's pail...and here is the inside.  If you look closely, you'll see that I included a clear tiny pail (which I found at Michael's) filled with jelly beans.  :o)
          Next is Sissy's pail and here's a look inside!  Those are baby bunnies, in case you're wondering, lol! (It's getting late here and I'm getting slap happy...)  :o}
     Little Sammy's frog pail turned out so cute, especially when you pair it with the darling little baby froggies inside!  I thought they looked even cuter with big eyes to match their daddy frog!  :o)
     And, finally, Baby Sissy's Easter pail with that cute little chick on the front...and who knew there were babies inside...a stuffed duckie AND a paper chickie!!  Baby Sissy's bag isn't filled with, she's got her tasty teething cookies and toddler yogurt bites in strawberry--her favorite flavor!  
     If you noticed the difference in the toppers at the beginning of the post and the ones inside the pails, the toppers at the beginning of the post were made for Mommy and Daddy's pails.  After all, I couldn't leave them out!!
     Well, this brings me to the end of my post for today.  I hope you enjoyed my Easter goodie bag toppers and hopefully you'll create some for yourself.  They are quick and easy and great for many different occasions.
     Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you again soon!
