Blizzard Warning........................

Good Monday Morning from Southern Minnesota.  It is snowing and we are under a blizzard warning today's a good day to spend indoors doing what I love - creating with paper!

I got out of the craft-room this weekend and participated in the Spring Craft Show at the Northbridge Mall in my home town of Albert Lea Minnesota.  I loved being able to share what I have created and meeting fellow crafters.

Today I want to share some simple projects I put together for Easter (or they could even be used as favors for a baby shower ;-) )

This is a simple candy-bar wrapper.  I cut a piece of cardstock to 6X6 inches and scored it at 1 1/2" and 3 7/8 inches.  I then wrapped it around a regular size Hershey chocolate bar and adhered it with glue dot runner tape. (I also run some adhesive along the candy-bar so the wrapper wouldn't slip off.)  The bunny face was cut with the Doodlecharm cricut cartridge at 2 1/2 " and a shadow out of a contrasting color of cardstock.  I stamped a heart shape over the nose and then traced the heart with black color pencil.  I also traced the mouth and added the whiskers with the pencil.  The cheeks and ears were brushed with 
Blush ink by Close To My Heart using a cotton swap.  The face was adhered to the shadow using glue dots and then added to the front of the candy-bar.  A ribbon was then tied around the bar.  I also tucked a scalloped medallion in the ribbon on the back so the giver could add a note if they wished.

In this project I used the same bunny "cutouts" but adhered them to a "Saf-T" sucker.  The face on the front of the sucker and the shadow to the back.  I used a dot tape runner.  I then added a bow.

Again, I used the same bunny "cutouts" but added them to a round chocolate crispy candy.

And, finally I added them to treat bags filled with pastel jelly beans.

Did you get inspired to create your own special Easter treats?  Let me know by leaving a comment.  I would love to hear what personal touches you are adding to your holiday.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Take Care of YOU!
