Happy Easter!!

Ohhhhh I can't wait for my daughter to wake up and see the eggs around the house.  As a bonus we weren't stomach sick this year!! (Knock on wood, of course)

We were very busy today making things... I truly enjoyed the day!!
Here's the bunny tails I made from an idea I got from this pin.  I used all Stampin' Up products to create this except for the Tiny Type Letters.  I just love how these turned out, especially the pastel colored marsmellows and the marsmellow on the tail.  I tried buttons but it didn't have the same "oomph". Supplies used were the whisper White paper, discontinued DSP, top note bigz die, wisteria wonder baker's twine and the following punches!
A couple tips would be to remember to score the top note by placing it front side down.  Remember that you can use your trimmer and your scorer to do this as shown in the picture instead of draging out your larger score board.  
Also, I first stapled the cellophane bags and then used sticky strip (scor-tape for non Stampin' Up) to adher to the cellophane bags.
Up next was just some peeps that were arranged on a stick.  I used mini skewers and really smashed those peeps onto the stick.  Make sure that if your recipients are young you have the tips cut off.  I used the same bags (approx 5"x10" as above) but folded them over and adhered with sticky strip. I first held them together with an elastic and then covered with a ribbon.  Just to make sure it stayed snug but also to make sure the ribbon doesn't slip down. Aren't they cute?
Later on, Miss J and I decided to make some bunny ears. This was based on another pin that I saw. My recommendation is to first measure the child's head using the paper.  I would use a strong tape or glue on the paper rather than staples because remember it will be on their head.  Make sure you use strong cardstock rather than printer paper.  All the paper used in this was Stampin' Up and it truly lasted some "rough housing". To make sure that you incorporate your child, first draw the bunny ears and pieces out on paper and let them cut it out with kid's scissors. You can let them draw, paint or add sparkle or cotton balls to this as well.  My child's favorite part is the glue so just let her do her thing.  Most of all - have fun!!!!
Aren't they cute little bunnies?

I wanted to show you my awesome bunny "quilt" table runner that I got from our local quilting guild.  Don't you just LOVE it? Also, see the dish of carrots?
 My daughter and I put a couple carrots outside too.  Remember to pick them up so that they know the EB ate them.
Have a great EASTER everyone!
