Easter Favor

Can you believe…it’s APRIL!  YAHOO!!!  I always feel like once we make it to April we have a good chance of only having to deal with one more snow!  Would be nice if we didn’t have to have one more but it always seems like there will be.  I can’t believe how late Easter is this year!  So in honor of the upcoming holiday our theme is Easter Favors!

Okay…I’ll have to admit, things were so insane at work this week I sort of forgot I still had to do this one…so be prepared it is QUICK AND EASY!

I forgot all about these simple baskets until I was trying to find something I could do REALLY FAST!  Oh…and before I forget…it you are looking for AWESOME treat boxes using Best Bunny and the great Twinkle Twinkle DSP…check out our collection!  You could easily substitute other sets and paper – the ideas are AWESOME!

Best Bunny Treat Box Collection!

Okay…here’s the details for today’s project…

  • Twinkle Twinkle DSP – 4 1/2 x 4 1/2, score at 1 1/2 on each of the 4 sides, snip along the score lines on each side so you can fold into basket.
  • Twinkle Twinkle DSP – 3/4 x 10, add to inside of basket to form the handle
  • Twinkle Twinkle DSP – cut out oval, layer onto Night of Navy matching scallop oval, wrap White Linen Ribbon behind oval and add to front of basket
  • Whisper White – stamp bunny using Memento Black, color using Smoky Slate and Petal Pink, punch out and put together, stamp present using Memento Black, color using Pool Party and Petal Pink, cut out and add to bunny, add bunny to front of basket to finish off
