Supplies:

Doodlebug Bunny Hop Papers, Glitters & Embellishments (available at www.scrapbook.com)

Tree, Buckets (available at your local Hobby Lobby Craft Stores)
Crafts Eggs
White Take-Out Box, Small Lunch Bags (available at your local Michael’s Craft Stores)
Colorbox Chalk Inks (available at your local Michael’s Craft Stores)
Fiskars Squeeze Shapes and Border Punches
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L 3D Foam Squares
Plaid Mod Podge

1) Easter Egg Tree….brush eggs with Mod Podge and while still wet…liberally coat in glitter. Shake off excess and set aside on paper to dry. (Note..don’t touch your eyes when working with glitter products especially if you wear contacts.) Hang eggs on tree…add a pretty ribbon to finish it off for your Easter Table.


2) Egg Napkin Rings…cut out an egg shape from papers. Add decorative paper borders, glitter accents, Ink edges and add stickers. Adhere egg onto paper strip that you will then wrap around the napkin.

3) Personalized Easter Bucket…for this craft…it’s great if the kids can help and decorate and design their own baskets. Much cuter than those in the stores! Offer up some stickers, alphabet stickers, punches and ribbons for them to decorate a basket to leave for the Easter Bunny.

4) Take Out Treat Box….cute, easy way to give some small gifts or candy. Cut out bunny shape, mount onto chipboard for added weight, brush with a coating of Mod Podge and liberally coat in glitter. Shake off excess. Cut pink cardstock pieces for ears, add buttons or brads for eyes, tie a bow (for a girl) and adhere to box. Add goodies inside!

5) For Egg Bucket…spray paint bucket white. Add decorative papers, punch shapes and stickers applying with Mod Podge. Allow time to set and then coat the entire paper and sticker surface with Mod Podge to seal the papers. Add some fun ribbons and you have a fantastic way to serve items for Easter or even for Easter Bunny gifts.
