Bunny & Chickie Easter Favours

My Husband said I was crazy, but the end result is one happy little girl who gets to give "eggs" (aka willy wonka plastics ones with nerds etc in them) to all her little friends at JK. As usual, I put them off to the last minute and was finishing them up last night and early this morning (Kate is an early riser).

They are super easy to make and do not take that long, but I had to make 23 of them! I'm really hoping her Kindergarten class in the fall is a lot smaller!

Bazzill Paper - Yellow, Lily White, Black, Orange, Pink (sorry I have no clue their actual names!)
Ribbon - Stampin' Up Clearance Bin - forget the name? Chocolate Chip I think
Big Shot Dies - Fancy Favours Box, Build a Flower #2 (in the clearance bin of SU right now!)(ears of bunny), Top Note (bodies)
Punches - 1" & .5" Circle, 1.25" Square
Markers - Basic Black, White Gel Pen
Cricut - Create-a-Critter - Heart - 1" for the Bunny's Nose and then I made the same heart longer and thinner for the Chickie's wings. This would have been easier if I had SU's Trio Heart Punch.
Creative Idea: I got the idea from Stamp With Tami, but for some reason I can't seem to get her site to load anymore.

Online Stampede Calling Card

One down, 60 more to assemble. hah! When I signed up for this a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea that 45 others would sign up, I figured, *maybe* 20. Then, the Cdn girls decided to do one, so that bumped me up to 61! So I needed something super simple and super easy to assemble. This did the trick.

I got the idea from the Cricut Magazine, used some DSP from SU that I'd been hoarding and of course it was no surprise that my calling card would have butterflies on it. :0) I needed 100+ total, but with my cricut, it was only 8m of cutting them out from each pc of patterned paper. The long, boring part of all this is going to be sticking them to the card.


SU Paper: Whisper White, Parisian something DSP
Cricut/Provo Craft: Swiss Dots Embossing folder, Serenade Cricut Cartridge (butterfly)
SU Stamps: Tiny Greetings (Hello, stamp is Hello Baby, but I just inked up "hello")

Teacher Gift.

One of Natasha's JK Teaher's last day is tomorrow, so since she won't be there for easter, I had to scrabble this morning to make her the easter gift + a thank you for teaching N this past year. She's a wonderful teacher and I'm very sad that she is leaving. :0(

I can not take credit for this super cute Box, I saw it over at Stamp With Heather and knew as soon as I saw it I had to make it. I made him all out Big Shot dies, but if you own a cricut, I'm sure you could find all the shapes on various cartridges to make him and you could use any box cut. :0)

Recipe: (All SU)
  • Whisper White - Large Scallop Big Shot, Large Clear Circle Big Shot, Ovals #2 Big Shot, 1 3/4 inch hand punch (2)
  • Fancy Favours Big Shot Die - Pretty in Pink
  • Sponge and Pretty in Pink Ink
  • Dimensionals
  • Basic Black - 3/4 inch circle (2)
  • Pink Button
  • Basic Black Marker
  • White Gel Pen
  • DSP - sorry I forget the name of it, it was scrap I had in my scrap bin
For the Chapters Gift Card I bought her, I made this cute little giftcard holder. I should have measured my fancy favours box though, as it almost did not fit. hah
