Easter Fun

After so many holidays using one color set it was really a treat to use a different palette for spring. (SPRING!)

Here are some of what I'm working on.

Idea 1:

Instead of Easter Baskets why not give someone a cute Easter cup?! Imagine finding one of these on your office desk or night stand!

-coffee mugs in a Spring color- check your local Goodwill or thrift store. This cup was .99
-green napkins (Target is a great source)
-four different colors card stock
-pipe cleaner
-and of course CHOCOLATE!

I used cookie cutters to outline the flowers.
-Cut four flowers each a slightly different size.

-Poke a small hole in the center of the cut flower. (A push pin would work)
-Slide flowers onto a short green pipe cleaner.
-Cut napkin as indicated below and unfold.

-Stuff into cute mug and fill with chocolate.

-Plant flowers in. You could even tie a little tag and note with paper and ribbon to the mug handle.

More to come!

That is awesome! How clever! Much nicer than cheesy store-bought crap! But I guess that's why we're all here, our abhorrence to cheesy store-bought crap...
