Easter Treats

I can't believe that I'm making Easter treats for the kids in my family and outside it is freezing cold and wet. Luckily there's no snow here and I don't think that we are expecting any but who knows.

One of the local supermarkets has some cute chocolate bunnies for sale. They come in their own individual clear box and I thought that this would be a good starting point for the Easter gifts. The box that it comes in also has it's own background scenery.


Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Card stock: Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink
Accessories : Melon Mambo Striped Organdy ribbon, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Large Oval Punch, Simply Scored Scoring Tool

Once I'd made the above using colours from the Subtles Collection I thought I'd be a bit bolder and make a different one but this time using colours from the 2012-2014 In Color Collection. I also decided to make use of some of my old plastic boxes that the brads and buttons come in. I used both the top and bottom to hold a piece of acetate that I'd cut to size to make the circular box.




Stampin' Up! supplies used:

    1. Thanks Dawn. I don't normally bother too much with Easter as the kids are supposedly too old, but with a 3 year old niece it is fun to make a few things. The only problem now is that all the older kids want one too.

    1. Thanks Sue. It's snowing heavily here and has been since 7 am. Luckily it's the light fluffy stuff and I'm hoping that it won't hang around too long.
