If you've reached me, you've likely come here via Tristan's fun blog. And you're heading over to see Monica's gorgeous flowers and other crafts at Scraps2Treasure.
If you're joining us mid-hop, please do start at the very beginning -- Shawnee will be delighted to welcome you at Blessed on the Bright Side. Since this blog hop runs through the weekend (April 7-10), you have plenty of time to visit each stop and comment on each, please.

Each post will contain a different gift item you can put in a loved one's Easter basket. Not all of our friends/family can have candy, and some simply can't get enough. Some are traditionalists and want Easter eggs, and others don't care what is in the basket, as long as the Easter Bunny visits.
Here's my project for DAY #4 - This is a JELLY BEAN BAG that I made using a small, food-safe snack bag to hold jelly beans, and I embellished it with a decorative header card.
And here's a extra little item that I just loved for an Easter basket, though it was store-bought. The size of a dollar bill, this cute "Russell Stover Note" is a 2-oz. solid chocolate bar. Very punny, signed by Hoppy McCarrot, and marked "In Bunnies We Trust." Sweet!
REMINDER: Post a comment here too, to be eligible for the Hop-wide BLOG CANDY: One lucky follower will win the brand-new Paper Crimping Tool I mentioned in Day 1 and Day 2's post. You can use a crimper to seal edges (like with the "sour cream container" shown yesterday) or to create textured interest. I picked this tool out specially for this hop, since it's not a tool that everybody has in their arsenal!
1. Be or become a follower of this blog. This is mandatory, and I do check!
2. Post a comment here, and please include a way for me to contact you when you win! You can post one comment per day.

UPDATE: Hop is now over ... thank you to all who participated. I will leave up the post, but take down the links for space considerations.
