Easter Egg Bag

I made this bag for Kaylee to give her teacher for Easter.  I used the Martha Stewart Score Pal to make the box.  I then used the Easter Cartridge to cut the eggs and then cut them in half.  I embossed the main part with Spots and Dots and then embossed the stripe with Swiss Dots.  I thought it needed something else, so I used some glitter pens to add some color to the circles on the eggs.  After the eggs were finished, I hot glued them to the box and then hand cut a handle.  I used the EK Success Swiss Cheese punch on the handle and then stapled it to the box.  Finally, I cut a tag with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and added the sentiment "Thanks for being an Eggcelent Teacher" to it.  I filled it with some candy eggs and Easter Grass.




I am entering this into the following challenges:
