Easter bags

I purchased some raw canvas and burlap bags the other day and thought I would decorate them for Easter.

Each one is a little different from the next.   I received some adorable papers and embellishments from the UK- Tilda.  They had a lot of springtime pieces that I used in the flower arrangements.

I painted in random areas with acrylic paint and a glittered snow texture.  I used antique doilies to anchor the flowers.  Colored lace was added and a banner was stamped with a sentiment.
These were so easy to put together and it was a great way to use a lot of my stash.

Once I started, it was hard to stop.
It's a fun way to give a gift.  You can fill it with candy or some other little gift.

Though bunnies and such are a cute symbol of Easter, the true meaning is the cross.  I have added one to each of my bags.
It is tucked into each flower arrangement.  Christ died for us and when they rolled away the stone, the tomb was empty.   His resurrection gives us the gift of eternal life if we choose to accept him as our Lord and Savior.

May you all have a blessed Easter and I pray you share this wonderful , holy holiday with those you love.  I pray you are able to go to a service to hear God's word and know that he loves each and every one of us.

Blessings and love,
