Itty Bitty Easter Treats

I made a few quick Easter treats.  These are all quick and easy and either a fun treat on their own or great for putting in your Easter baskets. 

The first one is a “sour cream” container look that I hope looks like a carrot! It’s filled with Easter Eggs.  Take a 4 x 6 sheet of paper and put tear and tape down one side of the 4” side.  Now roll this up so it looks like a toilet roll and remove the tear n tape and stick this down.  I used the Grapefruit Grove Gingham paper (small checks).

Gently fold (not a firm fold) with the seam in the center and glue down the bottom. 

Make the carrot top with a piece of green paper (tranquil tide? Granny apple green?) I used Spruce cut 3 x ¾ and then chopped one side to make it look like a carrot top.  Adhere this to the top.  Now fill with eggs (it holds a lot) and either secure with glue (so you’d have to destroy your carrot to get the eggs) or with a binder clip if you wish.  I added a greeting from the Itty Bitty set and some matching coral ribbon. I punched out the greeting with the classic label punch. 

Here’s a link from last May when I made these for school treats – just changing the paper made it so different.

This Easter treat uses our 2 x 8 cello bags and a few flat chocolate bunnies.  I think I like the 3 bunnies better!

I used a 3 x 2 piece of Highland Heather Gingham paper, fold it in half and attach to the cello bag and attach a matching bow.  Quick and Easy.

I didn’t attach a greeting… maybe I will when I get ready to put these in Easter baskets.

And the last little Easter treat.  This one uses the tag topper punch for the top of the bunny holder.

These little bunnies are at my Publix and my CVS and I think last year I got these on Amazon.  Easy to find.  And at 60 calories a bunny… a perfect treat!

Here’s the instructions.

2 x 6, scored at ½, 2 ¼, 2 ¾, 4 ½
Punch the end.
Fold on the score lines.
Punch out a 1 3/8 hole for the bunny.

Fold the holder up, insert the bunny, add some grass (2 x ¾) and a greeting from the Itty Bitty set.  I used Lemon Lime paper for the grass and 8” of Granny Apple Green for the ribbon.  I tied it in a necktie or you could tie it with twine or a simple loop.

A few tips:  Designer Paper is not strong enough for this holder… you really need thick whisper white.  (Unless you have thick specialty designer paper).   You could stamp behind the bunny, if so start with a sheet 2 x 7 ½ for space for stamping.   But I thought it was cuter smaller. 

I hope you make one!
