Last week I was busy making lots of Easter treats for teachers and friends. I started off with a few bunnies….
Then they just multiplied!
I have lost track of how many I have made but once I got started I just couldn’t stop! I had to work fast and give them out as I made them as each time I walked into my craft room I noticed that some of the little people I live with had swiped some of the Easter Eggs! I would of loved to have taken a photo of all of the ones I made together but at the rate the Easter eggs were disappearing I knew that this was not an option!
To make the cute punch art bunny baskets, I was inspired by this video by Diane Thorsen from DLT creations please click here. I decided to use my wood crate die instead of the instructions on this video on the basket although I did make one the same.
I decided on the wood crate in the end as it was quicker to mass produce. I loved putting together the bunny. Such a cute little project and these were so well received.
For the creme egg boxed gift, I followed the instructions from this video by Teri Pocock from Stampin’ Magic. Although in true Mandy style, I decided to make some changes and up size the measurements to use with Cadbury’s hollow eggs. The measurements I used for the up scaled version are listed below.
- Cut a piece of cardstock 3″ x 3″
- Score this cardstock piece at 2.5″ on all four sides
- Cut a piece of designer series paper 9.5″ x 2″
- Score DSP at 3/4″, 3 1/4″, 3 3/4″, 5 3/4″,6 1/4″, 8 3/4″
- The rest of the instructions are as per the video
We even made these cute treat boxes in my monthly class this month.
I loved giving out these gifts recently and seeing people’s faces light up when I gave their Easter gift to them. It is true, it is more than just ink, stamps and paper. I love so much how I have found Stampin’ Up! I am so glad that this is a part of my life.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
