CFC96 - Have a joyous Easter

Happy Friday to all!  I'm here today with a super fun challenge from CAS-ual Fridays:
CFC96: Create an Easter-themed project with a twist: NO CARDS ALLOWED.

And the sponsor for this week's challenge is Timeless Twine.  The challenge winner will receive a fantastic twine prize pack from their store!

For this week's challenge, I made a super cute and ridiculously simple Easter treat pouch.  Who wouldn't love to receive some delicious candy in this paper yummy?:

Like I said, these little treat pouches (aka "sour cream containers" because they resemble the little pouch of sour cream you get sometimes with a baked potato) are so simple to make.  For this size, I used a 6" x 6" piece of patterned paper, but you can use other sizes as well, depending on the thickness and rigidity of your paper. Check it: put adhesive on 3 edges of the back of your paper, then roll it to look like a toilet paper roll with exposed adhesive inside the top and bottom edges.  Press the bottom closed, and crimp it.  Fill it with candy. Press the top closed, perpendicular to the bottom edge, and crimp it.  Done!  Just add embellishments to your liking.  I made a tag and attached it with baker's twine:

And here's a close-up of the tag:

I'd love for you to play along with this week's challenge.  You have until next Thursday at noon EST to do so!  Thanks so much for looking!
