Don't worry, Easter isn't for another few weeks, but it's just the right time to start planning those Easter goodies that you're going to pass out. I had some of the Sweet Little boxes left over from my Valentine's treats and I thought they'd be perfect for Easter too. The boxes come in white so you can use them for just about anything. These easily fit snack size candies. The Easter Friends stamp set has the most adorable little bunny. The … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
With all the craziness of the last month, I was pretty sure I was not going to have anytime to make some Easter treats this year. Well, I managed to get a few made after all. These were relatively quick to make because I used a previous design and just reworked it to be smaller. This is very similar to the Easter baskets that we made for the Ronald MacDonlad House. You can see those baskets here. The earlier baskets that we made were … [Read more...] about More Bunnies
A yellow Easter Basket! At our March Downline meeting, we made Easter treats for our local Ronald MacDonlad House. Poli designed this adorable basket that we filled with treats. The baskets are approximately 4" across the bottom and the handles are a 12" strip of paper to give you an idea of the size. We usually make between 35-40 treats for most of the major Holidays. When it comes to treats for the Ronald MacDonald House, we … [Read more...] about A Tisket, A Tasket…
I absolutely love it when my plans come together so easily and quickly. It’s just the greatest when you come up with an idea and then you start working on a project and it’s so easy to put together that it’s almost like magic. And then there’s weeks like this one, when everything in your life decides to happen this week. And then you find out that the product you wanted to use in your next make and take is actually on back-order for at least … [Read more...] about On To Plan C…
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail... Easter is on it's way! In case you haven't looked at a calendar recently, Easter is this coming Sunday! It's hard to believe it's already here. For Easter, I love making little treat holders. I try to make a variety that will hold slightly larger treats and some that hold smaller treats. Today, I'm playing around with the Tiny Treat boxes. One trick when making these is to wrap … [Read more...] about Bunny Box
Last night was our monthly Downline Meeting. I really look forward to these every month. I love getting together with my crafty friends. Our swap theme this month was Easter or Spring and I went with more Easter treats. This is a variation of the one I shared last week. You can see that here. For this version, I went all pink and it looks so pretty. I used the same technique as last time to color the main tag. I used my sponge brayer to add … [Read more...] about More Easter Treats

I started working on a couple Easter projects last week using the Basket Bunch Bundle. I love that the coordinating die set cuts out just about every image in this stamp set. This is such a time-saver. No more fussy cutting all those little details to go in your basket. Today's project is using the dies to make a 3-D Easter basket. If you've seen the basket image in the catalog, you'll know how small these baskets are. This finished basket … [Read more...] about Bunnies and Baskets
